Remote working, mixed ways of working, virtual meetings, low nonverbal cue environments and the cumulative stress and uncertainty of our turbulent world combine to create significant room for error in communication, misinterpretation and elevated levels of vulnerability.

The teams and organisations that will thrive amid the current and future challenges are ones where people are not only empowered but equipped to navigate complex intra and interpersonal dynamics, and where people have the confidence and capability to take interpersonal risks, volunteer ideas, challenge ideas and to ask for help if required.  

Psychological safety is an essential part of a mentally healthy workplace, but it is also critical for team problem solving, creativity and innovation and ensuring shared identity and understanding within and across teams.

At Psychological Safety Australia, our focus is on the practicalities of building personal, team, and leadership capabilities which make this possible.

Developing and maintaining trust, managing interpersonal conflict, and promoting appropriate workplace behaviour are all complicated in our new ways of working. Our programs are designed to deliver real behaviour, capability and culture change.

Our approach to
Psychological Safety

Psychological Safety is fast becoming one of the hottest concepts in the leadership and workplace culture domains, yet it remains somewhat elusive, misunderstood and challenging to achieve. The notion that a team or organisation should have a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking appears quite simple, but why is it so important, and how do we practically build and maintain it?
