In recent years, it has been remarkable to witness how the concept of psychological safety – a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking – has come to prominence in high performance environments, where the stakes are high and the consequences of results often profound.
So what is psychological safety? How did it become such a hot topic in the world of high performance? What considerations are there when implementing psychological safety in your team? And finally, what does the future of psychological safety look like?
These are just a handful of the questions we hope to answer in our latest Performance Special Report, Psychological Safety: The Origins, Reality and Shelf Life of an Evolving High Performance Concept - featuring a collection of in-depth insights from performance experts around the globe. We may well understand the benefits of psychological safety – athletes who are comfortable admitting mistakes, a shared willingness and desire to learn from failure, an environment where everyone openly shares ideas and, ultimately, better innovation and decision making – but how do we reach that point in our organisations?
When it comes down to it, no one will have a better idea than the leaders who work with athletes day in day out and this Special Report is designed to give you the tools to identify, check and develop the levels of psychological safety within your teams.
