The Winning Team: Create high-performance teams by fostering Psychological Safety

Book this workshop for your people

“The Harvard Business Review found that ‘‘the time spent by managers and employees in collaborative activities has ballooned by 50% or more’’ over the last two decades.”

Chances are, you don’t work alone. You work in a team. Much of the work in organisations is done collaboratively by teams, so it’s not just about influencing how people work individually but how they work together. Success is largely based on the relationship between the people in the team. Are you all in it together?

If high performance is the ideal, how do you reach your optimum level of performance as a team? The environment must allow individuals to voice opinions without shame, openly admit to mistakes without labelling failure and encourage risk-taking. Safe and stable conditions enable a productive work climate. Teams must foster psychological safety, allowing groups to accept, trust and respect one another, empowering workers on an individual level to feel secure and allowing relationships to thrive.

It’s natural to be reluctant to engage in behaviours that could negatively influence how others perceive our competence, awareness and positivity. While this kind of self-protection is a natural strategy in the workplace, it can be detrimental to effective teamwork. On the flip side, the safer team members feel with one another, the more likely they are to admit mistakes, partner up, and take on new responsibilities. In our session, learn how to promote productive interactions with colleagues and have the confidence to be a key contributor. Be on the winning team.

Key learnings:

  1. Identify the cornerstones of psychological safety in a team
  2. Identify key aspects of what a high-performance team looks like compared to an average team
