The Fear Mapping activity (see seeks to create a more formal approach to identify and understand the levels of fear and anxiety in an organization during the audit process. This may be useful because fear paralyzes people and hinders organizational change.

The purpose is to compare the staff's fears with the results of a risk assessment, and capture high fear levels. Also, we may want to identify people who are much more or much less paranoid than others for training purposes.


  • Review the activity and improve our approach with best practices
  • Ensure we provide guidance for identifying sensitive / triggering topics and how to navigate those issues responsibly and with empathy
  • Review existing work in the space and add a reference file (draft file added inside the exercise folder) to include in the hosting "Method"
  • Consider converting to a method if multiple different approaches/activities come out of this research to help auditors with different skillsets manage this/
  • Link to other methods/activities:
    • Include in Capacity Assessment methodology
    • Reference from Interviews activities
    • Reference from Day in the Life/Night in the Life and other 1:1 events, including planning your audit section
    • Reference from Impact Ranking, Responsive Support, Debrief, and other high-tension activities ;
    • Can help prevent hijacking of larger group activities like Process Mapping; revealing individual risk models as they contrast with organizational needs
