BOOST YOUR TEAM’S EFFECTIVENESS
When people feel safe asking for help, sharing suggestions or challenging the status quo without fear of negative consequences, organizations are more likely to innovate quickly and better adapt to change.
Research has shown that the key to developing a successful team is Psychological Safety, or the belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes.
Psychological safety is present when colleagues trust and respect each other and feel able, even obligated, to be candid. It enables candor and openness and, therefore, thrives in an environment of mutual respect.
It does not mean that people offer unequivocal praise or unconditional support for everything. Psychological safety is not an “anything goes” environment where people are not expected to adhere to high standards or meet deadlines.
Psychological safety is about PERFORMANCE.
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY SCAN
The Psychological Safety Scan (PSI) is a validated instrument, developed in collaboration with Amy Edmondson of Harvard Business School, that leverages her more than 20 years of research to measure where teams are in terms of 4 domains of psychological safety.
Inclusion and Diversity.
When team members feel included, they are more inclined to speak up, contribute and add to the group.
Willingness to Help.
Teams become unsafe when people are not able to help to each other or feel appreciated by team members.
Attitude to Risk and Failure.
Teams that hold mistakes against each other risk a lack of control and forward momentum.
A team that has open and candid conversations is able to tackle hard problems better.
Our Psychological Safety Scan (PSI) for teams includes:
Discovery: One-on-one session between Salveo Partners & team leader, prior to survey
Survey: Each member takes a7 -question survey (approximately 3 to 5 minutes to complete).
Debrief: A 2-hour team session designed as a starting point of a conversation to illuminate strengths and/or show where attention is needed. Subsequent scans can show where progress has been made as well as highlighting strengths and areas still needing attention.
