Psychological safety means being able to show one's true self without fear of negative consequences for self-image, status, or career; it also means expressing yourself in a way that doesn't negatively impact others in these regards. It can be defined as a shared understanding that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking. In psychologically safe teams, there will be disagreements, but team members feel accepted and respected when they discuss them. Do you and your coworkers feel safe to speak up? To talk about mistakes? To admit you don't know something or are feeling insecure? Can you speak up when you disagree?
Most of us have some work to do - personally, and as a team - before we can feel free to make valuable contributions and challenge the status quo.

Have a candid conversation about how psychologically safe each member of the team feels, and discuss ways to begin making improvements today.

Be direct, but with care (optional)
Identify what your 'triggers' are that make it challenging for you to demonstrate or receive radical candor at times.

Each program follows a simple and effective evidence-based approach to skills mastery:

Assess yourself

Reflect on where you currently stand and discover the practical components necessary for mastery of this skill.

The skill is broken down into 3 essential sub-skills, each of which is the focus of one learning workout. You'll do 1 workout every 2 weeks over the next 6 weeks. 

Talk about it

Have an insightful conversation with your colleagues about how to implement each sub-skill in your day-to-day.

Build micro-habits

Along with each workout, design your own micro-habit to start putting your learning into practice on a daily basis.
