MBA1488 Guest Teacher: Timothy Clark – How To Lead your Team Through The 4 Stages Of Psychological Safety

Are you getting the best from your team? If they’re not psychologically safe…probably not.

In order to perform to their potential, employees have certain work environmental needs, aligned to commonly understood human needs. If that all sounds a little academic, it’s because we’ve got an eminently qualified guest teacher this week: author, entrepreneur, and Oxford doctor of social sciences Timothy Clark.

Don’t worry : this lesson goes way beyond theory.

Your team members don’t just need to feel “safe” physically. They need to feel respected, invited to contribute, and perhaps most importantly, free to disagree. If your people won’t challenge you, that’s a failure, of leadership – not a sign of strength.

Today, Clark will show you how to assess the psychological safety of your company.

Specifically, he’ll help you “score” your business (and your leadership) on the 4 key factors that indicate psychological safety. With this information, you can create confident, creative employees who think for themselves instead of simply doing what they’re told.

It’s proven to be one of the single most important factors in team management. Find out how “safe” your team really is. Click Play!
