(Especially in a time of change in the workplace) what are ways of dealing with the 'paranoia' of being made redundant, that every meeting in the boss' office "must be" about people being fired / restructured out, this upcoming department meeting is definitely going to be the announcement of the end, etc...?
It's not exactly the "impostor" reflex, more a worry/perception that management will not recognise the potential or capabilities of people and just make the "easy" decision to get rid of people instead.
Edited to add: I'm not really concerned about performance as I am one of the best people! I don't have a neat job description or place in the org chart though due to being involved in so much different stuff. Is it easier to say "this one doesn't fit" and throw it out when you restructure?
What's happened: Merged with another company. Org charts being re-drawn and so on..
It's a conflict between what gets the job done and what fits neatly on an "organogram" (!)
Additional edit: I have moved on before (prematurely) due to a similar worry.
