Recent research has proven that the highest performing teams have something very important in common that is imperative to their success; the teams all have a high degree of psychological safety.  In other words, the individuals on the team feel safe to take risks without fear of judgment.  Based on the latest neuroscience research, you will learn the reasons why creating and fostering psychological safety is so critical.  You will also walk away with an understanding of the S.A.F.E.T.Y.TM model for understanding how to implement psychological safety to increase performance and engagement both personally and within your organization.
