Psychological Safety and Trust: The New Imperative at Work and at Home @ Zoom webinar
Sep 23 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Psychological Safety and Trust: The New Imperative at Work and at Home

Psychological Safety and Trust: The New imperative at Work and at Home
This a FREE Webinar

Recognized as the most important quality in successful teams, Psychological Safety and Trust, allows us to feel safe enough to speak up, take risks and be vulnerable to those around us. More than anything, this is what sets us up for successful personal and professional relationships.

Without translating into coddling, lack of accountability or an absence of problems, Psychological Safety and Trust creates an environment where people can have difficult conversations without walking on egg-shells or tip-toeing around the truth.

In this one-hour workshop you will get a quick tutorial on the neuro-science behind Psychological Safety and Trust plus:
• Find out why creating it is deceptively simple.
• Learn what blocks us from being able to create it.
• Discover 3 key factors you’ll need to make it happen.
• Identify that ONE special quality that allows you to ‘lean-in’ and ‘get unstuck’ every time.
