A Human Workplace Olympia on May 31: Psychological Safety

Renée Smith

Join co-hosts Ellis Starrett and Anne Hansen to explore psychological safety, which is foundational to the success of any human workplace.

Based on the research and teachings of Harvard University’s Dr. Amy Edmondson, we will explore what psychological safety is, the impact on teams in the workplace, and behaviors that create and maintain psychological safety with others. This will be a thought provoking and highly interactive experience.
