Creating Psychological Safety in Teams: Part 2
In Part 2 it is suggested that in Creating Psychological Safety in Teams the most important thing is supporting your people to ‘win at work’: by helping them to move towards their work goals and aspirations. The means for this are 1. good ‘catalysts’, for example by providing clear goals, relative autonomy, resources etc, and 2. by providing regular ‘nourishers’ (trust, respect etc) that create psychological safety. It is suggested that leaders can protect themselves from burnout by using cognitive empathy and then turning to compassion – because the latter is good for them as well as for others. Finally, some comments and suggestions are made to help create psychological safety in the workplace.
