Building Psychological Safety in the Workplace

4 - 15
Full Day / Bite Size

Look at any high performing team and you’ll find they all have one thing in common: they all benefit from high levels of Psychological Safety. In a team with high Psychological Safety, teammates feel safe to take risks around their colleagues. 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.

When Psychological Safety is present it helps to create an inclusive and positive work climate. By building it into the workplace you will help shape a way of working that encourages your team to be creative, collaborative, adaptive and agile, especially during times of disruption, challenge and change.

We will explore what we mean by the term ‘Psychological Safety’ and show you how to model a supportive and consultative way of working. We will identify the different tools and techniques managers can use to establish a positive team climate, coaching others to model the behaviours and mindsets that drive team performance.

Who is this suitable for?

Leaders and managers that want to create a collaborative and resilient workforce.
