Course Overview

Psychological safety is the belief that you won't be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. The ability to create this "just culture" in the workplace is a vital skill for any manager. There is much research that developing this level of trust in the workplace is key to enabling the diversity of thought that the best teams use to innovate, grow and solve problems along the way. This short course will get you off and running and make a real difference to how you manage and how you are seen by your team and colleagues.
