Psychological Safety

21 Jan

In this video I discuss the importance of psychological safety to effective teamwork.  Psychological safety is the degree which I feel comfortable being fully myself in a situation.

This type of safety is essential for software development and other knowledge-based teams.  Safety allows a team to benefit from the expertise of all of its members

  • Is it safe to make a mistake?
  • Is it safe to say “I don’t know” and ask for help?
  • Is it safe to learn from failure?

Learning is crucial to the success of these teams.  Without safety, teams cannot learn effectively.  High performance teams are masters of learning quickly and effectively from mistakes and failure which require a high degree of safety.
