High Performance via Psychological Safety

Presented by Joshua Kerievsky and Heidi Helfand

Is your culture dominated by fear, blame and other toxic behaviors? Are people protecting themselves rather than pulling together, obsessing over customers and helping your organization succeed? If so, you may have a lack of psychological safety. When it’s present, individuals feel safe being vulnerable, safe taking risks, safe making mistakes and safe handling conflict. Long-term high performance depends on psychological safety. It leads to greater transparency, closer relationships, better collaboration and better outcomes. As leaders, it’s our duty to develop, model and foster psychological safety. In this interactive workshop, you’ll develop skills for growing psychological safety in yourself, your teams and your organization.

Learning Outcomes:

– Learn what psychological safety is

– Experience techniques for establishing psychological safety

– Experience ways to identify and repair mistrust and conflict

– Learn to interpret signs of a lack of psychological safety and what to do about it

– Understand the research that correlates safety with high performance
