I'm not scared of being fired, just pissed of feeling the axe continuously swinging above my head regardless of the good feedback I keep receiving.

But you're right: if you study the basics of management you get better chances to see things the way they do and anticipate/better handle the situations that can (and will) come. I noticed this first hand when started reading about leadership.

Yeah, it sucks. I think we just need to remember that the axe isn't actually over our heads, but over the ropes that tie us to the metaphorical ship.
