Psychological safety

The most productive workplaces are those where people feel able to be their true, authentic selves - a place that is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.

Psychological safety refers to a shared belief within a team or organisation that it is safe to share ideas and ask questions, so people can express themselves without fear of judgement or negative consequences. 

And it’s a feature of the workplace that leaders can help to create.
