Amy Edmondson on Psychological Safety
The key to excellent and inclusive teams
If you want to build an excellent team, you need full engagement of ALL team members. All voices need to be heard. All ideas need to be shared. Only then … does a team reach its full potential.
How do you create a team culture:
- in which it is safe -and even expected- to speak up
- that is truly open and inclusive
- that responds productively to risks, mistakes and failures
- that demonstrates radical candor, even when sensitive issues are raised
