In 2021, organizations around the world are striving to achieve two goals: First, to create a sanctuary of inclusion. Second, to create an incubator of innovation. These goals can only be accomplished when leaders model and reinforce psychological safety to activate the full potential of people. Psychological safety refers to “an environment of rewarded vulnerability”. But psychological safety is not a binary proposition. It's a matter of degree. When leaders nurture psychological safety to the highest levels, individuals are able to climb the ladder of personal vulnerability and do four things:
1.Feel included 2. Feel safe to learn 3. Feel safe to contribute and 4. Feel safe to challenge the status quo
And when organizations progress through the 4 stages, they can, in fact, create sanctuaries of inclusion and incubators of innovation.
Participants will receive a deep understanding of the concepts, skills, and behaviors that will help participants create high levels of psychological safety in their organizations to unleash and accelerate the development of their people.
