Fearless Workplace: Concept of Psychological Safety

The work of translating the bigger ideas that occurs multiple times within a day is the trickiest part of organizational change. The concept of psychological safety is gaining momentum in terms of how to carry out current thinking on leadership and management.

Psychological safety provides an atmosphere in which team members feel like they can voice their concerns, bad news, or ideas. They don’t fear the humiliation of blame.

When an organization follows and promotes such a culture, it is known as a fearless organization. A fearless organization ensures that all the people work together to achieve a common goal, while not caring much about the concerns of others that might cripple them. The fearless organization is important as it facilitates a psychologically safe workplace that unleashes creativity, innovation, and learning.
