What is Psychological Safety?

Psychological Safety is an environment of rewarded vulnerability.

Individuals and teams move through The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety based on the natural progression of human needs. These human needs are consistent across demographics, psychographics, nations and cultures.

The Behavioral Approach: Your 30-Day Action Plan

Traditional Approach vs Behavioral Approach

The traditional approach to changing behavior includes awareness, understanding, and appreciation. We then hope to cross the threshold of conviction and move to belief and behavior. The traditional approach is not wrong, it's just not sufficient. When we approach change from both ends of the spectrum, change becomes sustainable. When we start practicing concrete behaviors those behaviors generate confirming evidence that what you are doing is working.

The 30-Day Action Plan

As a participant in the online training you will create a 30-day action plan. This plan will help you focus on behaviors for each of The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety™. Your 30-day action plan will include reminder emails and reflections to help your behaviors stick. You can go through this 30-day process as often as you’d like. 

Level Up Your Credentials

Receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the online training and a 30-day action plan. Credentials like this will increasingly become a requirement for all team members to create high levels of psychological safety in their teams and organizations.
