Description:Psychological safety is the ability to reveal one’s true self and opinions without fear that doing so will lead to negative repercussions in terms of reputation, career or status. While high levels of psychological safety in the workplace are linked to better outcomes, increased innovation, and deeper work satisfaction, many organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to create a sense that it is safe to speak up or take risks. In this session, we will address current forces working against psychological safety in the workplace to include economic uncertainty, tone policing, vocabulary shaming, political differences, and remote work. Please be advised that this program contains material related to violence, death or suicide.
