Creating Psychological Safety

10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Explore the number one factor of successful people and teams that will set you apart at work

Human beings have core needs of safety and belonging, according to Abraham Maslow. Clearly psychological safety matters, but what is it? And how do we build it at work? The truth is everyone gets to be involved. Everyone contributes. Whether it’s a new employee or someone seasoned, we can all agree the wants and needs in a company’s culture are changing and have been for some time. The days of checking your personal life at the door, power and control leadership styles, and never speaking up is no longer what the workforce wants. Leaning into the trends and desires benefits the company exponentially.

By the end of this knowledge-building session, you’ll be able to:

  • Define Psychological safety and explain its importance in the workplace
  • Identify the factors that contribute to and detract from psychological safety
  • Reflect on your own behavior and how it affects the psychological safety of your team
