The Details

“Psychological safety” is a simpler concept than its many syllables might suggest. Put simply, it’s a shared understanding within a group that everyone can be themselves and feel safe to speak up, share ideas, voice concerns and make mistakes. At work, team members operating in an environment of psychological safety feel supported, empowered and inspired to perform at their peak. Individuals gain deeper experience and new skills, and are less prone to burnout. Companies see greater productivity and innovation. Lacking psychological safety is like a turbulent airplane ride—an experience that can strike fear and anxiety in the bravest of passengers, rendering them unable to think about anything else. Sometimes the pilot will come on the speaker to apologize for the bumpy ride, explaining that he’s going to change altitude in order to “find some good air.” When he finds that spot, the flight transforms into a smooth, stress-free experience, and passengers can focus on things other than life and death. The “Good Air” workshop is your ticket to creating a more psychologically safe workplace. The workshop goes beyond the fundamental components of psychological safety. Thought-provoking, interactive discussion guides participants to reflect on their own experiences, helping them identify opportunities to bring about positive change in their own daily lives. After attending “Good Air”, participants will come away with very specific practices they can put to use immediately—ways to fine-tune the energy or “vibe” they send out, make more meaningful connections, think differently about the language they use, and reframe their own failures and those of others. Invite your teams to experience this workshop and see what “Good Air” can do for employee success and well-being—and your organization’s results. Key Lessons
