Yesterday we explored the first of the three – building trust. Today we’ll look at Safety and Wednesday at Connection. This triad is at the heart of my 2021 TEDx talk, Virtual, Remote and Hybrid Checklist.

What can we do to create safety? First, of all what is safety in today’s workplace?
Amy Edmondson defines it as: “a shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking.”
Interpersonal risk taking can look like several things – it can mean:
Being able to bring alternative perspectives to the table, without fear of being made fun of, ostracized
Being able to debate as a team.
These elements are critical if we want to create a safe environment for all. If people don’t feel safe it is unlikely that they will lean into bringing their best work, and will give it their all.
