There’s a lot of talk about Psychological Safety in organisations these days. But what does it actually mean and how do we create it?
In this episode, I outline the four stages of Psychological Safety as defined by Timothy R. Clark Ph.D. from Oxford.
Here’s the question from a General Manager in the Sporting Industry:
“It’s so important to look after the physical safety of sports teams, but more and more with coaches calling the shots, their psychological safety seems to be at risk. Apart from being respectful and developing trust, how do you create “ safe spaces” for athletes to pushback on coaches’ decisions at times”
It is no overnight solution but if you want to address social friction or the fear of speaking up in your team or organisation, then knowing these four stages of psychological safety is a great place to start. Make challenging the status quo and innovative contributions from all levels the norm in your organisation.
Hope it helps.
Enjoy the episode and please share it with your friends, colleagues and leaders you know would benefit from the lessons within.
