Leadership carries the responsibility of creating safety. In this video, discover four actionable steps to ensure you personally cultivate safety on your team.
- As the team leader, … it's vital that you create psychological safety … because your position of power or status … naturally suppresses the team's ability to speak up … no matter how warm and friendly you think you are. … When I'm training team leaders and managers, … I emphasize that the ability to create psychological safety … is the most important skill, … yet most people don't even know what it is, … let alone how to create it. … Here are four easy things you can start doing today. … First, be accessible. … Availability creates those opportunities for candor. … When we rush off to the next thing, … we lose those informal social exchanges … that can be so valuable. … Consider how you might make yourself more available … for small talk, … knowing that there's actually nothing small about it. … And make sure your door is literally open … so that people can just pop in. … Second, acknowledge your own fallibility. … Not pretending to be perfect is crucial … because it breaks down the barrier of hierarchy …
