Everyone agrees that psychological safety is important and has proven to improve organisational performance and that leaders must work towards it. However, the true grit behind the intent is tested, not during, what we may call, peace times, when the industry is in a great shape, but when the going gets rough.
What is psychological safety and why should you double down even more during tough times on it? How can you communicate the tough messages to your team while ensuring that you create a safe space? And how can we practice this effectively in today’s increasingly remote and distributed world? These are some of the points we will be looking at today.
