Psychological Safety

Creating the conditions for high performing teams

In a nutshell

Some teams produce results that are more than the sum of their parts. Consistently outperforming groups of more talented, but less connected individuals. Why is that?

No one person is strong in all areas. We could all benefit from developing effective relationships with other people. When we create a culture that everyone wants to be a part of, that’s safe to share honest feedback and safe to try new things, we unlock the brilliance of others. 

Almost every project in work or life is a team sport. Even if you work on your own, improving your relationships with suppliers, customers, friends or family is likely to have a significant impact on your ability to get things done and the quality of your life.

In this masterclass, we explore a way of thinking about team working, and more broadly about working together in a community which enables you to work with others more effectively.

In this 3 hr session we will:
  • Explore the 4 stages of psychological safety to navigate, unlocking innovative contribution
  • Discuss the key misconceptions about what psychological safety is not
  • Artefacts and behaviours to create a culture where it is safe for interpersonal risk taking
What impact can this have for our team
  • Create a culture of rewarded vulnerability 
  • People feel safe to contribute, learn, and challenge
