Psychological Safety has been identified as a #1 condition for creating high-performing teams by Google’s Project Aristotle. Yet, many organizations today find themselves being affected by fear in the workplace. It manifests itself in employee's disengagement, lack of innovation, toxic working environment with gossip, rumors and massive resignations (‘’best people are leaving”).
How can we start making the first steps away from the culture of fear and towards the culture of psychological safety?
Join this workshop to experiment with a new Fear in the Workplace game (designed by our speaker) that can help start these difficult conversations in a fun way. Discover safety enhancers that can help you, your teams and your organization.
