Psychological Safety Training

Psychological Safety Training for Leaders Drives Stronger Engagement & Better Results

Foster trust, creativity, collaboration, and innovation across your organization.

Psychological safety at work is a shared belief held by members of a team that others will not embarrass, reject, or punish them for speaking up or making mistakes.

And a lack of psychological safety in the workplace has major business repercussions. First, when psychological safety is present, teams have higher levels of performance and lower levels of interpersonal conflict, our research has found. And when it isn’t present, and people don’t feel comfortable speaking up with their concerns, the organization isn’t as well equipped to innovate — or to prevent failure.

A psychologically safe workplace begins with a sense of belonging. Employees need to feel accepted for who they are and free to ask questions, raise issues, or experiment with new approaches.

Psychological safety training for leaders can make a real difference in helping managers create a safe climate for employees to share concerns, admit mistakes, offer ideas, and try new things. Including our research-based psychological safety training content as part of your leadership development initiatives can foster trust and enable teams to make bigger contributions, improving organizational outcomes.

Upskill Your Leaders With Psychological Safety Training

Nurture Psychological Safety by Developing Trust Within Teams

By leveraging our psychological safety in the workplace training, team leaders learn the skills and behaviors that promote a psychologically safe culture at work:

  • Asking powerful, open-ended questions, and then listening intently to understand.
  • Agreeing to share failures, recognizing that mistakes are an opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Using candor, whether expressing gratitude or disappointment.
  • Asking for help, and freely give help when asked.
  • Embracing expertise among many, versus a “hero” mentality.
  • Encouraging and expressing gratitude, which reinforces team members’ sense of self.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Organizations who have partnered with us to build trust and foster psychological safety in the workplace consistently tell us the same thing: their experience with CCL made a significant impact on their culture — and their bottom line.

But don’t just take our word for it — take theirs.

During our work with an international financial services client, we helped to develop a common leadership language across the entire organization and build a more collaborative, trusting culture. The company wanted to foster an environment where people could have meaningful, candid, and constructive conversations about performance, in line with its goals of becoming an employer and business of choice.

In a partnership with a pharmaceutical client, our facilitators sought to create a psychologically safe training environment for participants. To signal senior leader buy-in, executives were frequently present during the development experience, but our facilitators also designated key parts of the program as being for participants and facilitators only, to foster more candid discussions.
