At Beam we have recently released our most up to date workshop brochure which includes 9 new workshops and courses. One of these which is already proving to be popular to organisations is "Understanding Psychological Safety".
What is Psychological Safety?
Psychological safety is a belief that one can take interpersonal risks in a work environment without fear of negative consequences. It is a feeling of being safe to learn, fail, contribute, and challenge the status quo.
Why is Psychological Safety Important?
Psychological safety is essential for high-performing teams and organisations. When team members feel safe to take risks, they are more likely to share their ideas, even if they are unconventional or challenging. They are also more likely to learn from their mistakes and innovate.
The Benefits of Psychological Safety
Research has shown that psychological safety has a number of benefits for individuals and organisations, including:
Increased employee engagement and satisfaction
Improved team performance and innovation
Reduced stress and burnout
Increased employee retention
Google has long recognised the importance of psychological safety. In fact, it is one of the five key dimensions of Google's culture. Google has found that psychological safety leads to all of the above benefits.
One study at Google found that teams with high psychological safety were more likely to achieve their goals and were more innovative.
How to Foster Psychological Safety in your Workplace
There are a number of things that leaders and managers can do to foster psychological safety in the workplace, including:
Create a culture of learning and experimentation. Encourage team members to ask questions, share their ideas, and learn from their mistakes.
Celebrate diversity and inclusion. Create a workplace where everyone feels welcome and valued, regardless of their background or beliefs.
Promote collaboration and teamwork. Give team members opportunities to work together on projects and share their expertise.
Model risk-taking and vulnerability. Show team members that it is okay to make mistakes and that you are willing to learn from your own. We encourage delegates to challenge how they interpret failure and instead treat things as an experiment.
Provide feedback in a constructive and supportive way. When you give feedback, focus on the behaviour, not the person. Be specific and offer suggestions for improvement.
