Building Cultures that Thrive in Difficult Times: Psychological Safety and Leadership

Presented by: Brandi Lust, Teacher, Speaker, Consultant

Participants will:

  • Learn how psychological safety affects a group’s ability to stay engaged
  • Build a toolkit for building team belonging during difficult times

Leaders hold the key to team engagement. Through the norms they establish and the behaviors they model, they send the message of whether it’s safe to be honest and real, which is especially important in challenging times. According to Google’s research, this single factor—safety—determines whether groups can work together effectively and grow—or whether they will fraction and break apart. This workshop will build your toolkit for creating psychological safety, unlocking the potential for long-term engagement and resilience on your team.
