The 5 Pillars of Psychological Safety
What are The 5 Pillars of Psychological Safety?
When you think of safety, your mind is conditioned to think of your physical safety. Psychological safety is often overlooked.
William Kahn, Google’s ‘Aristotle Project’ and Amy Edmondson’s research have catapulted the term Psychological Safety into organisations consciousness.
BUT until now, there was no blueprint for creating psychological safety in workplaces; a cohesive plan to take it from concept to reality.
Gina Battye created the blueprint for psychological safety.
From Gina's observations working with ex-offenders, through to consulting and training multinational corporations on psychological safety and LGBT+ inclusion, she could see very clearly that there are 5 key areas that organisations need to address, to ensure everyone can bring their whole self into the workplace.
These are referred to as The 5 Pillars of Psychological Safety.
These 5 Pillars of Psychological Safety are the foundations and building blocks being used around the world to create fully inclusive workplaces.
In-person and online.
As featured in Thrive Global.
What Is Psychological Safety?
“Psychological safety in the workplace means that every single person in an organisation is able to bring their whole self to work.
No hiding, no censoring and no pretending to be someone else.
When you have a psychologically safe environment, people communicate and collaborate effectively and a culture of curiosity and creativity is cultivated.”
