Psychological Safety Assessment

Psychological Safety Assessment

Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. It is an essential element for building trust, encouraging collaboration and fostering innovation, which elevates team effectiveness and organisational outcomes.

It is important for leaders and HR professionals to know the level of psychological safety in their team or organisation, so that they can facilitate crucial conversations in the areas that are lacking. By creating a safe environment where individuals are comfortable taking risks and learning from errors, team members are better able to contribute fully, thus unlocking the team’s potential and enhancing its performance.

Introducing the Fearless Organization Scan (FOS)

The Fearless Organization Scan uses the body of work of Harvard Business School professor Amy C. Edmondson to help organisations measure and improve psychological safety in their teams.

Based on Edmondson’s Psychological Safety Index (PSI), this innovative tool reveals how a team stacks up against the global benchmark data across four domains that contribute to a safe environment as follows:

  • Willingness to help
  • Inclusion & Diversity
  • Attitude to Risk & Failure
  • Open conversation
