A work environment that focuses on building psychological safety is one in which each member of the team safely feels able to voice their opinion and put forward their ideas promotes much more diverse concepts, increased creativity, and better problem-solving ability throughout the team. It is also integral to the wellbeing of each member of the team, contributing to how comfortable and secure they feel within their work environment and directly relating to the productivity of the organisation. 

This workshop will explore the relationships between trust and psychological safety, while considering what psychological safety feels like. Participants can then implement this knowledge to discover practices that can be introduced to the work environment to build psychological safety within their organisation.
