Course description

Psychological Safety: An Imperative for High Performing Teams

Some of business’s greatest innovations originated from people willing to think out of the box and take a gamble on an “unlikely” idea.  Unfortunately, most of us find it a challenge to be open, think creatively, and take risks for fear of being criticized, judged, or even laughed at. That’s why psychological safety is a far more powerful tool than its name might suggest.

This course will help you become familiar with the elements of psychological safety and how they relate to trust, high-performing teams and innovation. You’ll also learn how to apply psychological safety in your organization through a special capstone exercise.
