Why is this course important?

Psychological Safety (PS) is the number one fundamental underpinning required for team and organisation performance.​

This programme of workshops and team-coaching sessions will arm your teams and leaders with practical tools and techniques to support improving Psychological Safety in your teams and organisation.​​

Building upon the Psychological Safety Scan or Briefing, this interactive programme will teach and practice key techniques within the safety of a controlled workshop environment. This is followed by coaching and group support for the participants practising within the work context.​

​The aim of this programme is to catalyse new behaviours that will have a positive influence on the level of safety in your teams and the wider organisation.​

Programmes are customised to suit specific contexts and varying requirements.

    As Psychological Safety is a group dynamic, anyone who works in a team or leadership role has an influence on the safety of groups in which they collaborate and interact.​

    In summary, this briefing will benefit teams and leaders.

    This briefing is not associated with a certification.  
    Programmes are customised to suit specific contexts and varying requirements.​

    ​Sessions are distributed over a number of weeks to ensure participants have sufficient opportunity to practise new techniques. The elapsed time of programmes varies between 1 to 3 months.​

    ​The total amount of session time also varies dependent on the size and number of groups and by context. The total session time of programmes starts from approximately 10 hours.

      This programme builds on the Psychological Safety Scan or Briefing. If necessary, we can add the Briefing module to initiate the programme. ​

      ​We also recommend reading Amy Edmondson’s book The Fearless Organization.

      Although best known for my long association with Scrum, I love everything Lean, Agile and Kanban. I get a buzz out of catalysing new ideas, collaboration, creativity and innovation to engage the full potential of teams and leadership.​

      ​I am a ‘Fearless Organisation Certified Practitioner’, a member of the TAC (Trainer Approval Community) for the Scrum Alliance and a collaborator on ScaleAgility, a Principles Led approach to applying Agile at scale.​

      Away from work, I try and squeeze in way too many sports and hobbies: road cycling up mountains, trail running with my dog, sailing, skiing, diving and lots of DIY projects!
