Elevating our Teams: the Power of Psychological Safety

by Cyndi Wineinger

Have I mentioned lately how much I love what I do? The ability to help companies reach their strategic goals and develop leaders is truly my passion.

Building organizations by building leaders includes three key elements: assessing who is hired into a leadership role, onboarding them properly, and then helping them thrive as a part of the culture and high performance team.

Start with an assessment of your current training

A key aspect of helping people thrive includes a comprehensive assessment of your training for both hard skills (computer work) and soft skills (communicating well with others and use of empathy). I am currently helping several companies update their talent development training programs, and the topic of psychological safety is a key focus.

The secret sauce that fuels team greatness

So, what is psychological safety? It’s the secret sauce that fuels team greatness – the shared belief that we can take risks without judgment. Imagine this: Think about your worst boss ever (#bosshole alert). The room changes, right? These “Corporate PTSD” stories linger, impacting us in the blink of an eye.

Now, toss in the post-Covid whirlwind, election drama, global chaos, and an unsettling surge in everything. Psychological safety becomes our anchor – a cornerstone in crafting training that nurtures our people. What’s our role in fostering emotionally healthy environments? It’s more than a question; it’s a call to action.
