6. Maintain Psychological Safety At Work

Psychological safety was coined by Harvard Business School student Amy Edmondson in her book, The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth. It is, “a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes,” says Edmonson. In workplaces, this means that employees are encouraged to speak freely and engage authentically. There is a mutual level of trust and respect among colleagues.
