Psychological Safety Overview

Want to improve your performance and that of your team?

Psychological Safety is the key to happy, high-performing people and teams.


What is Psychological Safety and why is it 


Amy Edmondson who’s conducted ground-breaking research at Harvard University defines psychological safety in the team context as, “a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes, and that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking” (Edmondson, 1999).


In a psychologically safe climate, team members are not afraid to express themselves; they feel accepted and respected. This openness creates a productive environment for thinking, creativity, innovation, and growth, and leads to more collaborative relationships and an overall improvement in team productivity (Radecki + Hull, 2021).

What's the Approach?

An accredited facilitator for individual and team assessments for the Academy of Brain based Leadership, for the Psychological S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ Assessment, Dr. Amber Tichenor uses a straight forward method and proven tool to measure and develop individual and team members psychological safety needs. Utilizing workshops, keynotes, and assessments, these solutions include:

Individual and team Psychological S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ Assessments and debrief overview | A Psychological Safety and S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ model overview which includes how the brain works and influences behavior | Psychosocial clarity as to ‘why’ psychological safety might be the ‘thing’ that’s missing in your current environment | 1:1 and Team Coaching | Psychological Safety transformation management

What are the Benefits?

Your team productivity, collaboration, creativity, innovation, communication and trust will improve!


Participants will not only understand how they are personally driven and how they derive their psychological safety, they will also become aware of those traits in the people they interact with. The goal is to create a ‘brain-conscious’ culture that fosters self-awareness, which empowers everyone to be their best self.
