Over dit evenement

Success in modern organization requires a continuous influx of new ideas, new challenges, and critical thought. People have to feel free to speak their minds, even if their idea is not robust yet. To facilitate this process, an organization can’t do without a culture of Psychological Safety.

In this digital masterclass, Amy Edmondson, professor at Harvard Business School, explores the power of psychological safety, and provides a blueprint for bringing it to life. She will teach you how to:

  • Create a culture where it’s “safe” to express ideas, ask questions, and admit mistakes
  • Nurture the level of engagement and candor required
  • Follow a step-by-step framework for establishing psychological safety in your team or organization

Psychological safety isn’t about being nice. It’s about giving candid feedback, openly admitting mistakes, and learning from each other.
