Psychological Safety

A high level of psychological is the core strength of the most successful and productive teams. It represents an essential prerequisite for an agile way of working.

Psychological safety can be defined as feeling safe within your working team and being able to express, doubt, or question team or leadership activities without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status, or career. It 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. 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?
