These symptoms may show up as low-level anxiety, an aversion to taking risks, over-work or under-commitment. Whatever the symptoms are, they exist and are usually unaddressed by the employer. Performance will be impacted, however, especially in situations where the change is significant, such as with downsizing, corporate mergers and internal re-organizations, changes in management or team structures.
