NWI Webinar: Fostering a Psychologically Safe Workplace: What Does Wellness Have to Do With It?

Psychological safety is defined as a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. Wellness professionals can not only create psychological safety within their initiatives, but should also influence the work climate to build a psychologically safe place to work.

Webinar Description

What do a nurse on nightshift, a pilot, a new leader on an executive team, or a worker employed by biotech companies have in common? They feared speaking up when they should have--they perceived a lack of psychological safety. Psychological safety is defined as a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up, with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. One’s personal self-image at work is important and people spend a lot of energy protecting it. If we feel there is a risk of damaging that self-image, we don't take the risk. And in not taking the risk, a small piece of organizational learning or knowledge is lost. What is even more significant is the influence a lack of psychological safety has on individual and group well-being, undermining even the best workplace wellness programs. Wellness professionals can not only create psychological safety within their initiatives, but should also influence the work climate to build a psychologically safe place to work.


Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • explain the concept and research behind psychological safety.
  • describe the relationship between psychological safety and wellness.

  • describe how to build a psychologically safe workplace that enhances well-being as well as innovation.
