Toxic cultures limit and distort information
Psychological safety drives high-performing groups
Toxic work and home environments are all around us: intimidation, humiliation, secret discussions, manipulation. Those environments are psychologically unsafe. When we and those around us feel unsafe, we become fearful, stop learning, and fail to improve.
Discover the power of psychological safety in fostering high-performing teams, whether family or corporate, as we dive into techniques to cultivate trust and open communication. Learn from Google’s Project Aristotle case study, Mirela Petalli’s experiences in hospitals, and Dan Greening’s experiences in tech companies, which reveal the transformative impact of psychological safety on productivity and collaboration.
Join us as we challenge norms with mindfulness and agile practices to elevate team performance. Listen to this episode and transform your understanding of what it takes to create a successful, innovative, and cohesive team. Don’t miss this chance to unlock more potential – tune in now!
