Creating the Playful Space for Learning: Psychological Safety Online
July 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
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.
