Lesson 120: Promote Psychological Safety
We should always promote psychological safety whenever we are able. Psychological safety is about removing fear from human interaction and replacing it with respect and permission. From Wikipedia: Timothy R. Clark has contributed to the concept of psychological safety with the 4 Stages of Psychological Safety framework. He defines psychological safety as “a condition in which human beings feel (1) included, (2) safe to learn, (3) safe to contribute, and (4) safe to challenge the status quo – all without fear of being embarrassed, marginalized, or punished in some way.” These are essential in every relationship. If you don’t have that maybe you need to pull the plug.
