Peak Performance Requires Psychological Safety

When I heard the word safety I used to think of hard hats and high-visibility jackets.  But not anymore thanks to Amy Edmondson.  Now, I know that creating an environment where people ‘feel free too express relevant thoughts and feelings without fear of being penalized’ is every bit as important as the Health and Safety Manual.  Indeed, performance and psychological safety go hand in hand.

More than a buzz word, Psychological Safety is key to individual as well as collective performance and potential. It is not to be taken for granted however – Pitstop Analytic™s Data shows that 4 out of 10 leaders are working in environments at are not safe enough to have conversations about difficult or contentious topics or to give honest and constructive feedback.
