New Course: How To Boost Psychological Safety In Your Team

Written by Pim de Morree February 15, 2023

Psychological safety is not about wrapping your employees in a cocoon of bubble wrap (as tempting as that may sound). No. Instead, if done well, psychological safety could be considered one of the most powerful tools to introduce to your team. But here's the big question: how the hell do you even do that?

What is psychological safety?

Let's break it down—what exactly is psychological safety? In a nutshell, it's the belief that sharing your thoughts, questions, and ideas (even your mistakes!) won't result in embarrassment or repercussions.

But here's the thing: if that foundation isn't in place, the ill effects are real… and costly. Employees disengage, opportunities are missed, and productivity takes a hit. And the worst part? It's a vicious cycle because people tend to hold back without psychological safety, which makes it even harder to identify and solve the root problems.

It's no wonder psychological safety is making waves in the corporate world. Thanks to trailblazers like Amy Edmondson (who just so happens to be on our Bucket List of workplace pioneers), the importance of creating a safe and trusting work environment is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

How do you create psychological safety?

And yet, despite widespread recognition of the issue, leaders still need help finding a clear path forward. The shelves are filled with glossy guides and thought-provoking theories, but the hard truth is that many changemakers and transformation experts are still left fumbling around in the dark, trying, failing, and basically reinventing the wheel.

The sad reality is while lip service is being paid to the importance of psychological safety, few companies are actually walking the talk.
