Psychological Safety at Work – Virtual Training Materials – Build High Performing Teams
Psychological safety is a term used to define how confident employees within an organisation feel to share their worries and concerns and contribute ideas. It is noted that where employees do not feel psychologically safe, mistakes will occur and things that could damage the organisation or create a dangerous environment are not highlighted.
A psychologically safe workplace is one where employees feel that they can speak up without fear of threat, ridicule or at risk of losing their job. These organisations tend to develop high performing teams, where everyone works together and helps support the development of the business as a whole.
These virtual training course materials have been developed in order to support the idea of psychological safety in the workplace. Helping individuals understand the concepts behind the practice and learning how to embed a positive culture within their organisation. The key aim is to help encourage a positive working environment where positive working practices are encouraged and people are allowed to share and highlight concerns or elements that will force improvement.
Why is running this Psychological Safety virtual training course a good idea?

- Develop confidence to highlight issues and concerns
- Know that they are supported in their decisions and actions
- Identify areas of concern and spot problems before they happen
- Share improvement ideas and spot opportunities
Ultimately these virtual training course materials allow you to nurture a workforce that feels able to speak up on issues of importance and help guide the organisation towards innovation without fear.
