Three Ways to Build Psychological Safety
There are millions of things that you can, and must, do as a leader to build and maintain psychological safety in your teams.
But it’s hard to remember millions of things, so here are three key points that will help you create and improve psychological safety, whether you’re in charge of the team or not.
1. Frame work as a learning problem, not an execution problem.
The primary outcome of work should be knowing how to do it even better next time.
2. Acknowledge your own fallibility.
You might be an expert, but even you can make mistakes – if you admit it when you do, you allow others to do the same.
3. Model curiosity.
This creates a need for voice. Via asking questions, you create space for people to speak up.
