A Successful Leader’s Toolkit for Fostering Psychological Safety

Psychological Safety: 

Where Do You Stand?

Why do your employees stay silent even if they have ideas to share?

Why do they choose to not say anything other than to report a grievance within the organisation?

When you don’t hear any feedback or any concerns raised, does it mean everything in your organisation is working perfectly well?

Maybe not.

Most likely, they just don’t feel safe to speak up.

And you will never know until you measure the level of psychological safety.

Your team, your leadership, everyone’s success are all at stake when psychological safety is low.

Foster psychological safety and build high-performing teams to reach your organizational goals.

According to Gallup, an increase in psychological safety leads to:

 27% reduction in turnover


40% reduction in safety incidents
12% increase in productivity

Psychological safety is the measure of how safe and supported people feel to speak up, show initiative, raise issues, and suggest better ways of doing things at work without the fear of negative consequences such as being punished or ridiculed.

Google’s two-year study revealed that the highest-performing teams have one thing in common: psychological safety.

“Psychological safety isn’t about being nice; it’s about giving candid feedback, openly admitting mistakes and learning from each other.”

— Amy Edmondson, Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School
