What you will learn:

Research indicates that pscyholgocial safety – more than any other factor – is critical to making a team work well. And organizations with higher levels of psychological safety perform better on multiple metrics, from innovation to employee well-being. Here's the challenge: While it’s more important than ever to nurture trusting work cultures, the new normal of virtual and hybrid work settings is making them harder to create and sustain.
In this workshop, attendees gain critical understanding about psychological safety and its benefits and how to help build such cultures. This class is important if 1) You are concerned about a diminished sense of safety created in virtual settings 2) You recognize that the boundaries between personal life and work have blurred and therefore created a greater need for psychological safety in the workplace. 3) You believe that psychological safety is critical to moving the needle on DEI (also documented). Attendees leave the workshop with: 1) a strong understanding of psychological safety and its benefits in the workplace 2) tools and frameworks to use in order to build trust and create safety 3) the ability to hold authentic discussions that nurture psychological safety.
