Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

“In a team with high psychological safety, teammates feel safe to take risks around their team members. They feel confident that no one on the team will embarrass or punish anyone else for admitting a mistake, asking a question, or offering a new idea.”

Psychological safety is based on the principle of allowing people to feel safe in the workplace and allowing them to contribute their ideas and concerns. Teams with high levels of psychological safety are considerably more likely to develop a culture of knowledge and innovation.

Psychological safety relies on removing the feeling employees have that they should, ‘fit in’, ‘know their place’, ‘toe the line’ and go along with things in order to be accepted. By developing a culture that goes against this and allows people to feel safe, empowered, fearless and able to speak up, we enable individuals to grow and excel and encourage performance improvements.

This training course exploring these concepts and establishes how your staff can help develop a culture that exhibits psychological safety traits, giving participants essential skills and confidence.
