When it comes to teams at work, a lot of emphasis has been placed on factors like skills, relationships and trust. All are important, but psychological safety represents an additional concept that team leaders and managers should be aware of. It's associated with the sharing of ideas, identification and discussion of risks and open review of errors.
This session will clarify the concept, outline its benefits and introduce some simple ways for managers to build psychological safety in their teams.
The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Richard A. MacKinnon, a chartered psychologist and coach who has extensive experience in team development and management coaching. The session forms part of the free WorkLifeWebinars from WorkLifePsych, a team of workplace psychologists specialising in people development at work.
