Psychological Safety

Psychological safety is the core strength of the most successful and productive teams, like Google’s Project Aristotle found out by studying more than 180 different teams. Psychological safety is a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking. It can be defined as being able to show and employ one’s self without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status or career. Most companies are already aware that a high level of PS is important – but how do you build an environment that enables its team members to feel safe?
