Practice Culture by eyeTHRIVE

First identified by Harvard Business School Professor Amy Edmonson in 1999, psychological safety is as an organization’s cultural predisposition for giving candid feedback, openly admitting mistakes, and learning from each other as part of an office’s code of conduct. Why is this important to you and your team? Psychological Safety has been cited as one of the most important aspects that has led to the success of iconic companies like Google, Apple and Amazon. If you are not already on a high performance team it’s possible to cultivate it to get the best input, feedback and performance from your team.

Psychological safety is the #1 building block of company culture. Dr. Larry Golson explains what this is and how to build it into your practice culture.
