Psychological safety - the belief that one can speak up without risk of punishment or humiliation – has been established as a critical driver for higher quality decision making, healthier team dynamics, improved interpersonal relationships, greater innovation, and overall team effectiveness.
Research shows, that organisations with higher levels of psychologically safety perform better on almost every metric or KPI, in comparison to organisations that have low psychological safety.
