Building Fearless Organizations for Learning, Innovation & Growth

Have you ever been afraid to voice your opinion in a meeting? Been frustrated by your team members’ failure to participate? Wondered if there is anything you can do to lead innovation in your organization? Have you heard that Google has identified Psychological Safety as the single most important predictor of team performance?

At the 2019 PSPS Leadership Forum, Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School, will answer these questions and more. She will discuss why psychological safety must be at the core of a company’s culture for it to be successful. In this in-depth and interactive session, Amy will present her most current research findings, demonstrate why psychologically safe teams outperform others, and provide a step-by-step action plan that you can implement to build a culture of psychological safety in your organization.
