“Psychological Safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes.”
– Amy Edmondson
In recent times, we have seen a new requirement emerge for leaders and workplaces and that is the idea of Psychological Safety. Psychological Safety focuses on the need for leaders to create the space for voices and important message to be heard without retribution.
Building a psychologically safe team and workplace is not only about stopping bad stuff from happening to your people and organisation but also where growth, innovation, trust, curiosity and belonging are born.
Research tells us that people who are psychologically safe at work will bring the best version of themselves and are fully engaged with what they are doing.
The essence of psychological safety is creating an environment where individuals and team members feel they can contribute an idea or concern to the group without fear of retribution.
In this keynote, Richard will share with you how to create a culture of trust, curiosity, empathy and robustness, all while getting the real work done.
