Edmundson, "The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth." We live in a knowledge economy where success is a matter of solving problems and coming up with the next big idea. It's not enough to be smart or hardworking either. Organizations need their employees to collaborate, experiment, and respond to business needs that are constantly changing. But in many offices and boardrooms, people lack the confidence to do exactly this, silenced by the fear of failure, judgemental colleagues, or unapproachable bosses. These blinks introduced the concept of psychological safety and why it should be a feature of every work environment. Through research and examples from prominent businesses, the blinks break down the ways in which a culture of openness and support enable success and what leaders can do to develop this in their own organizations.
