Google's extensive research into the "secret" of high-performing teams led directly to psychological safety, a team environment characterized by trust and respect. We know we have it when team members are comfortable being fully themselves, speaking up, asking questions, challenging, learning from failure, and taking risks.
In this interactive workshop, Tina Robinson, a leadership coach and facilitator with more than 25 years of experience helping leaders unleash the potential of their teams, will guide you through the what, why, and how of psychological safety. We will define psychological safety, describing situations when we know we had it - and when we did not. We describe the benefits to teams and organizations, how to balance accountability and safety, how emotional intelligence contributes to psychological safety, and what managers can do (and avoid) to increase and inspire safety on their teams. And we address how individuals can increase safety for themselves (when they're not the boss) - a lesson in leading through influence. You will leave with practical guidance and ready-to-use tools that will elevate your leadership to new heights.
