Not all acts of vulnerability are created equal. What you perceive as a low-risk act of vulnerability might be high-risk for someone else. You have a ladder that is unique to you: it comes from your environment, your role, socialization, education, your confidence, and the way people treat you. We call this your Ladder of Vulnerability.
Start on the path towards improving psychological safety when you discover the behaviors that are vulnerable for you. Take the five-minute Ladder of Vulnerability™ self-assessment and compare your highest and lowest scoring items with the results of your team members.
