Duration: 1 hour
Psychological safety at work is needed in order to foster trust, creativity, collaboration, and innovation within and across teams, groups, and levels in an organization. Too many organizational cultures and systems prevent people from challenging the status quo, speaking about blunt truths and difficult issues, admitting that mistakes were made, offering new ideas, taking risks, or trying new approaches to challenges faced. Without sufficient psychological safety at work, individuals and teams are not leveraging their full potential. Can psychological safety be assessed and enhanced? Absolutely, if individuals and organizations create safe spaces to take interpersonal risks.
In this webinar you’ll learn:
- The importance of psychological safety at work to improve collaboration, boost performance, and implement rapid innovation
- Leadership strategies you can use to clarify boundaries, establish trust, and foster interpersonal risk taking
- Ways to balance challenge and support to achieve the sweet spot for developing your team members without overwhelming them
