The Safe Space: How to lead a courageous team

Business Agility Australia 2018

Psychological safety is paramount for innovation, capitalising on diversity of thought, and connection with our work. Building teams that are capable of using trust and effective conversations are where we need to be in order to close the gap between what we could do and what we actually do.

We must also be able to stretch our behavioural range, drive ourselves towards our goals of being vulnerable and courageous. How we do that will depend on how safe we are: safety drives courage. By enabling The Safe Space within our team, we can use each other better to make more agile and responsive moves.

In our VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world, we must foster our human connection and collaboration for remarkable achievements.

But how do you aide it? How do your behavioural and thinking habits limit your contribution to the collective? How does your behaviour enable others to bring their best game? How do you build a culture that enables true collaboration where the collective overrules the ego?

Amy is currently writing the book The Safe Space: How leaders make courageous teams.
