Maura Barclay on Why Psychological Safety Became So Important Now
It would be fantastic if we could all work in an environment where we're free to make mistakes, discuss challenging topics, embrace diversity, take risks without fear of failure, and ask for help without judgment.
Unfortunately, the reality is that psychological safety, the most misunderstood aspect of workplace culture, is often neglected due to business pressure.Organizations that prioritize psychological safety are better able to foster innovation, collaboration, and a sense of belonging among their employees, leading to improved performance and greater overall success.
As a result, many businesses and leaders are now recognizing the importance of creating a psychologically safe workplace culture.About Maura Barclay
