When psychological safety is fostered within a team environment, people feel able to ask for support, take accountability for mistakes, raise concerns, suggest ideas, and challenge ways of working, and so on.
As a result of this transparent and honest culture, risks are decreased, productivity flourishes, innovative ideas are generated, the team is able to execute those ideas and everyone feels included. The combination of all these factors supports a culture where teams are fully engaged, and relationships thrive.
Psychological safety is one of the most powerful aspects to drive team performance and is used by top organisations on the planet, including Google and Toyota. Recent research demonstrates that if companies are not creating psychologically safe workplaces, they are putting their people and business at risk. However, with the correct framework, you can develop a psychologically safe culture with happier team members driving organisation outcomes.
