In an exten­sive study on what makes great teams suc­cess­ful, Google’s Project Aris­to­tle con­clud­ed that it’s not as impor­tant who is on the team, but how the team mem­bers work togeth­er. And the Num­ber One most impor­tant fac­tor in that suc­cess is psy­cho­log­i­cal safety.

Accord­ing to Har­vard Busi­ness School pro­fes­sor, Amy Edmond­son, who coined the term, psy­cho­log­i­cal safe­ty is “a belief that one will not be pun­ished or humil­i­at­ed for speak­ing up with ideas, ques­tions, con­cerns or mis­takes.” Inter­twined with trust and vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty, psy­cho­log­i­cal safe­ty is when team mem­bers feel safe to take risks and let down their guard in front of each other. 

Before we can dive into deep learn­ing or brain­storm­ing, it is essen­tial that we cre­ate the space for con­nec­tion, per­son­al shar­ing, and trust-build­ing. It not only cre­ates a warm and invit­ing atmos­phere, but it ensures we can dive into the hard work lat­er because the group feels com­fort­able sharing. 

Tak­ing the learn­ing space into con­sid­er­a­tion in the typ­i­cal Zoom space is more impor­tant now than ever for cul­ti­vat­ing and fos­ter­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal safe­ty online and with hybrid groups.

Join us on Wednes­day, July 14, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. EDT, for a free work­shop on “Cre­at­ing the Play­ful Space for Learn­ing: Psy­cho­log­i­cal Safe­ty Online.” The hour-long work­shop will dive into fun activ­i­ties, games and key tips for facil­i­ta­tors to bring the the­o­ry of the learn­ing space and psy­cho­log­i­cal safe­ty to life online. 

Lead­ing this work­shop is Romy Alexan­dra Solomon.
