Creating a Culture of Psychological Safety

Meaningful & strategic cultural change.
1.5 hr Video | 11 Lessons

Dismissing workplace psychological safety as rhetoric or fad is a strategic mistake for any business. The data is clear - companies that prioritize workplace wellness reap substantial rewards in productivity and profitability.

By design or default, a company’s consideration for safety or lack of consideration affects its employees’ willingness to invest their full efforts, directly impacting your bottom line. Without safety, stress increases, morale breaks down, trust is low, productivity slows, and business outcomes suffer. Businesses and leadership who actively promote and defend safety promote and defend the products of safety — creativity, productivity, innovation, and the financial benefits of these products. 

This course on Creating a Culture of Psychological Safety was initially developed for a client, one of the world's most innovative Fortune 100 companies. The course is led by industry experts Bridgitt Haarsgaard, Lisa Lemond Lane, and Edwin Williams, a GAARD team with a proven track record of transforming organizations through fostering cultures of psychological safety. This transformative 11-part series empowers leadership with the knowledge, strategies, and skills necessary to cultivate environments where innovation can flow as team members feel secure, valued, and included - where leadership recognizes that the business rewards for building safety into culture aren’t just a happier workforce, but the financial benefit of increased engagement, care, and effort.
