Psychological Safety is Built
Through The 4 Stages.

Teams progress through four successive stages of psychological safety as they satisfy basic human needs. These are fundamental human needs that exist across demographics, psychographics, nations, and cultures.

Measure

You can’t improve your workplace culture until you know where you are. High levels of psychological safety or areas of rewarded vulnerability (blue zones) bring out the best in individuals and teams. Low levels of psychological safety or punished vulnerability (red zones) reduces productivity, suffocates innovation, and kills culture. Once your team catches the vision, determine the existing levels of psychological safety in your organization using:  

  • Mac desktop with Leader Factor Platform opened on the screen

    Team Survey

    Measure individual teams or entire departments levels of psychological safety. Compare your team's scores internally across demographics and across each of The 4 Stages.

Improve

Approach cultural change by design through data-driven action plans that help individuals learn behaviors to reward vulnerability. Psychological safety is perishable, not permanent. It’s delicate and dynamic. It requires consistent measurable effort to maintain a healthy company culture. Foster a culture of rewarded vulnerability across your teams using:

  • A macbook containing a a screenshot of the ladder of vulnerability

    Team Roadmap

    Cultures of rewarded vulnerability are cultures with high psychological safety. To improve psychological safety in your organization is to model acts of vulnerability yourself and reward the vulnerable acts of others. The 4 Stages Team Roadmap will help organizations uncover team members’ areas of greatest vulnerability and then help individuals reward that vulnerability through data-driven action plans.
