Foundations of Psychological Safety

Online workshop with Greg Groenmeyer and Dr Louise van Rhyn

Google has identified psychological safety as ‘the magic sauce’ for high performance teams. It is crucial to a team’s success. Whether you’re in an entry-level position or managing a team, there are things you can do to help have a positive impact and shift the culture in your workplace.

Psychological safety describes a workplace where one feels that one’s voice is welcome with bad news, questions, concerns, half-baked ideas and even mistakes. People should feel like they can ask questions, raise concerns and pitch ideas without undue repercussions. It’s a concept that’s even more valuable now, with so many people adjusting to remote work and worrying about going back to work.

Why is psychological safety important?

Psychological safety is a condition in which human beings feel (1) included, (2) safe to learn, (3) safe to contribute, and (4) safe to challenge the status quo – all without fear of being embarrassed, marginalised, or punished in some way. The 4 stages of psychological safety is a universal pattern that reflects the natural progression of human needs in social settings. When teams, organisations, and social units of all kinds progress through the four stages, they create deeply inclusive environments, accelerate learning, increase contribution, and stimulate innovation.

This interactive workshop, designed by Greg Groenmeyer and Dr Louise van Rhyn, will provide guidance to leaders who want to create environments where their team members can make their best contribution for high performance.
