Psychological safety—hard to build and easy to destroy

Psychological safety is what makes the best and most productive workplaces. It’s hard to build and easy to destroy.

Can you take a risk?

Can you speak up?

Can you safely dissent?

Are the constraints and boundaries clear?

Are things consistent and predictable?

Are things transparent and happening in the open?

Will seniors back you up?

Are juniors included in the conversation?

Can we collaborate and compromise?

Are there role models for everyone?

Are you able to be your whole self?

Are different perspectives valued?

Can you take a rest?

Are there people around who can support you and who have enough slack to do that when you need it?
