Psychological Safety
in the Workplace

Psychological safety is one of the most important concepts of a modern workplace. It means everyone has the confidence to share ideas, feedback, questions, concerns, and mistakes, for the betterment of themselves, the team, and the organisation.

It has become so important that many social scientists now believe that psychological safety is one of the basic needs of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and a prerequisite for people to be at their best in all aspects of life.



There has been a lot of talk on why psychological safety is important, however there hasn't been much hands-on help for organisations wanting to improve it. Until now.

What other people said

Insightful and engaging. A great balance of depth and breadth - just what I need in my leadership role. Astrid has a facilitative, engaging style.

The workshop was excellent and extremely well delivered. Additional time was also spent allowing people to share examples of how they have applied these concepts which really helped bring it to life.
