Session Description:

This course is going to help you manage image risks, form a different perspective to interpersonal risk and failure and build a balance between avoiding interpersonal risks and being overly risk-taking. Overall, the course is aimed at fostering psychological safety through engaging in effective learning behaviors that create a working environment conducive of taking interpersonal risks.

There are four different drivers of psychological safety. Drawing on the results of the survey, the driver attitude to risk and failure had the lowest average score (5.4/7), meaning that on average the employees somewhat agree with feeling safe when taking a risk on their team.
