“High Performing Teams Need Psychological Safety”
Studies show that psychological safety allows high performing teams greater risk-taking, confidence of speaking their minds, and reduced fear of failing forward leading to creativity and innovation. In response to acute stress, our brains enter into a “fight-of-flight” mode which in turn causes a physiological reaction. Reactions include increased heart rate and breathing, trembling, flushed skin, and tunnel vision. When this occurs we must decide to stay and deal with the threat or run away to safety. This does not only occur only in the face of imminent danger, it can also occur as a result of a more psychological threat at school or work – like preparing to give a presentation. It also occurs in work environments where real or even perceived threats occur such as unhealthy co-worker competition, managers inciting conflict, or when team members are flippant. Understanding psychological safety and how to provide it among your teams can lead to healthier more productive environments at work and home. This presentation will explore why psychological safety is important, what it is, how to recognize signs and symptoms, and team activities to measure it.
