I believe that an organisation is built around relationships. So when psychological safety is overlooked, those relationships are too. And your organisation suffers.
Let’s stop that from happening.
I used to work in an environment that cultivated fear. Where people were afraid to speak up, suggest new ideas and admit mistakes. We were going backwards as a business. And people weren’t happy.
Needless to say, I didn’t stay there very long.
But from experiencing how not to do things, it made me driven to learn and teach others how to do things. To help organisations create an environment that promotes change, experimentation and support.
Today, Psych Safety is a place of shared learning. An ever-evolving platform that pulls together all of my resources for others to benefit from. And a reputable source of psychological safety content from all over the world.
The mission of Psych Safety is to make the world of work a safer, higher performing, more inclusive and equitable place, and to amplify the voices of minoritised groups and those who are less represented in this field.
I don’t adhere to one particular framework. Every team is different, so every approach to change is different. That’s why I take the time to understand how you and your team work and what you’re trying to achieve – and suggest the best roadmap for you. And if something isn’t clicking? We simply switch it up.
I’ve held senior leadership positions and worked across various industries, including technology, aviation, healthcare, education and more, and practices that work for one can work for another. So I use shared learnings to get the most out of your organisation – regardless of industry.
Psychological safety is all about continuous improvement. So I stay up to date on best practices by regularly talking with the psychological safety community and being involved in academic research across numerous institutions. Plus, I never stop reading. So you’ll always feel like you’re moving forwards with me, never backwards.
