A Fearless Culture: How Psychological Safety Boosts Collaboration and Innovation

Psychological Safety Is Key for High-Performing Teams

Fear is the most pervasive emotion at work. Most teams censor their best ideas. They are afraid of being ignored, criticized or punished. Emotions affect your thinking–emotion management helps create positive thinking and encourage positive behaviors.

Psychological Safety can make or break teams, according to research by Google. A fearless culture feels safe to embrace feedback, collaboration, and experimentation.
