Main Conference Day Two (25 Sep)

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019


Coined by academics and popularised by Google, Psychological Safety is the number one indicator that shows whether a team will be productive or not. By far the most important component of success in teams, it refers to the ability to grow together by being open, honest, vulnerable and genuine together to enable true collaboration and innovation without any fear of repercussions. 

Teams who have a high degree of Psychological Safety outperform the ones who do not and if the enterprise is serious about change and applying new ways of working such as Agile then they need this level of performance so they have to start measuring and improving it. The tools to quantify it and those to better the Emotional Intelligence of leaders so they can monitor and improve Psychological Safety themselves are starting to emerge and in this session we can look at the research behind the software solutions created to address this.
