Have you ever sat in a meeting and wanted to share an idea but didn’t?
Were you ever asked what you thought of a new initiative/project and you didn’t share your true thoughts?
Do you feel like you put on a mask to go to work? Like you need to become someone different to protect yourself?
If so, you’re missing out on opportunities for your team to learn, grow, to innovate for the better. You are a victim of low psychological safety.
What is Psychological Safety?
A belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, feelings, concerns, or mistakes.
Benefits of High Psychological Safety:
