Psychological Safety at Work
Psychological safety is about creating an environment where feedback is given candidly, mistakes are freely admitted, and people can learn from each other. Members of a team will feel psychologically safe when they share the belief that they will not be exposed to interpersonal or social threats to their self, their social standing or their career.
A psychologically safe team can be summarised as one that trusts each other to test ideas without judgment, confidently voice opinions and fail without being labelled a failure. These training course materials aim to give your participants the tools and skills to implement actions that help create this environment.
