Build Psychological Safety

Teams thrive when they feel safe to express their thoughts and ideas, and are more innovative, creative, and higher-performing.

What is psychological safety?

“Uncertainty” is the word that characterizes the current environment. And yet, teams require a sense of belonging, security, and safety to do their best work.

Psychological safety is the belief that you can speak up freely without fear or risk of punishment and humiliation. This is a critical factor in healthy team dynamics that results in better decision-making, greater innovation, and more effective execution in organizations.

The Four Stages of Psychological Safety

To develop and build trust, we must understand the components of trust – authenticity, empathy, and logic.

If you sense that I am being authentic, you are much more likely to trust me. If you sense that I have real rigor in my logic, you are far more likely to trust me. And if you believe that my empathy is directed towards you, you are even more likely to trust me.

When all three of these things are working, we have great trust. But if any of these three gets shaky or starts to wobble, trust is threatened.

I experience the real you.

I know you can do it; your reasoning and judgement are sound.



I believe you care about me and my success.
