The Psychological Safety Playbook: Lead More Powerfully by Being More Human

In the late 1990s, a sticker provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (acronym OSHA) could be read on the backs of cars in the United States. The sticker confronted its reader with propositional logic: “If you don’t know what OSHA means, you’re in trouble.”  Today you may hear less about physical workplace safety (and see fewer OSHA stickers) and more about safety of another kind: psychological safety. According to the management consulting behemoth McKinsey, psychological safety is a workplace climate in which “employees feel comfortable asking for help, sharing suggestions informally, or challenging the status quo without fear of negative social consequences.”  Are you still thinking about that OSHA sticker and getting in trouble because you’ve never heard of psychological safety? Lucky for us, Dr. Karolin Helbig and Minette Norman just co-authored a practical step-by-step playbook to help you implement psychological safety in your workplace and are coming on our show to do a live workshop with us!
