Who should attend

Anyone who has responsibility for, or aspires to, leading people and teams. The content is appropriate for chief executives as well as early-career managers. The techniques and practices are applicable to any leader who wants the best from their people, and accurate information to make informed decisions.

About the course

Psychological safety is recognized as a key differentiator in successful team performance. The challenge of leadership is how to foster that safety in their teams while also delivering against high (and frequently increasing) expectations. In this two-hour program we will briefly review the research to establish credibility, then quickly move to an experiential 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 personal relationships. This topic is even more critical now as the conversations we need for teams to be highly effective are fraught with risk, especially if psychological safety has not been adequately established.

Key Takeaways / Curriculum

  • Understand the critical importance of psychological safety on team performance
  • Experience the presence and absence of psychological safety
  • Identify the symptoms and practices of unsafe team environments
  • Recognize the leaders’ role in creating the environment in which their team(s) operate
  • Use techniques and tactics to build psychological safety one-on-one and in groups
  • Outline actions to simultaneously increase safety and reinforce high performance

Teaching Methods
