Psychological safety is recognized as a key differentiator in successful team performance and a foundational component for openness, creativity and risk-taking. In this two-hour program, we will briefly review the research to establish credibility, then quickly move to an exercise where participants experience the presence and absence of psychological safety.

From that awareness and experience, we discuss how to create psychological safety and enable high performance. The lessons learned or confirmed in this activity can be immediately applied to subsequent sessions, to daily work, and even to personal relationships.

  • Establish Credibility
  • Understand Perception vs Intent
