HRMN045 Psychological Safety in the Workplace


Course Description

"I don’t know, I made a mistake, I might be wrong, I disagree, I have a concern, I have an idea" These are examples of the things people are not afraid to say when they have psychological safety.

Psychological safety is the shared belief that the workplace environment is safe for interpersonal risk-taking. Although research shows psychological safety as the exception rather than the rule, it is possible – and, in fact, necessary - to consciously cultivate it.
