What does psychological safety mean to you?
Amy Edmondson’s defined psychological safety as a workplace environment created to encourage people to express their ideas and be themselves, ‘the belief that speaking up is expected and welcome.’
Edmondson’s work has paved the way for creating more productive teams, as well as improving the wellbeing of team members and leaders.
I asked six leaders for their definition of psychological safety – what it means to them – and how they are embedding it in their teams, the challenges they’ve faced and how they’ve overcome them.
Do you want learn how these leaders are cultivating psychological safety in their teams?
