The term “psychological safety” was originally coined by Amy Edmondson to describe a behaviour that we can observe. But what does it mean to be psychologically safe? Why is this such a powerful and critical aspect to ourselves, and those around us?
When we dig a bit deeper, we find that psychological safety is deeply connected to our own survival mechanism. If we’re going to create a positive and safe environment, we’ll need to address it. And in order to do so, it’s helpful to understand what’s really going on in our brains.
Join the DC Scrum User Group on November 15 to hear more from Mike Bowler on Psychological Safety. We’ll look at what we know from neuroscience and psychology about psychological safety. We’ll discuss what we might be able to do in our environments, regardless of our job title or role, to make things better for ourselves, and for those we work with.
