Creating Psychologically Safe Workplaces and Teams | October Chapter Event
What is the most important factor in a team's effectiveness? How about in a high performing team? Is it that people know each other and have rapport or have worked for a long time in the organisation? Or maybe that people are highly educated, are specialists in their field or have PhDs…
Research from Amy Edmonson and Google's RE:work discovered that psychological safety is the most important factor to create an effective team. It is a key trait of high performance work cultures, however transforming or cultivating this culture within an organisation or can be challenging.

As project leaders it is up to us to create diverse and inclusive teams and foster a psychologically safe environment with constructive conflict or, as Brene Brown calls it, have a Rumble. If we want to perform in projects we must also perform in being a psychologically safe team.
