Do you enjoy psychological safety at work?

Psychological safety is a bit of a new kid on the block in organisations. It’s all about the belief that you won’t be punished when you make a mistake or challenge the status quo. It encourages open, honest conversation; innovative thinking; and builds trust at all levels. 

Not sure if you’re already enjoying psychological safety in your workplace? Here are three questions to help you decide:

  1. Do you feel that you can challenge the status quo without fear of being ignored or criticised?
  2. Are you confident that your boss and peers will ‘have your back’ when things go wrong or you make mistakes?
  3. Do you get regular, honest feedback both about what you are doing well and what you can do better – and get the support to keep improving too?

If you can answer “Yes” to each of the questions above, chances are you already enjoy psychological safety and the many personal and business benefits it brings. If your answer is “No”, you may not be reaching your potential or have the opportunity to contribute as fully as you’d like at work.

Whether you’ve answered “Yes” or “No”, we’d invite you to contribute to our research into Fear in the Workplace by completing a short survey.

To do so simply fill in our our online survey at:
All responses are completely anonymous and treated in the strictest confidence.

Fear at work is the enemy of psychological safety – quite frankly, where fear is present, psychological safety will be absent.
