Psychological Safety at work
Psychological safety is the core to unlocking inclusion, innovation and improvement.
“Psychological safety is the belief that no one will be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes”
Dr Amy Edmonson
If you can change the nature of conversations and approach in your teams, the quality of your outcomes increases exponentially.
Instant change isn’t always possible but the change in most people after completing the first session and survey certainly is impressive. Debriefing, action planning and following up sessions are program elements that have seen immediate and sustained improvements for our clients.
People certainly work well if they embrace and action the concepts of psychological safety. The multitudes of benefits that this brings to our clients businesses is tangible and sustained.
