Evaluating your organization’s psychological safety

There is a tolerance for mistakes

Employees are open about the mistakes they made instead of avoiding them or, worse yet, covering mistakes up. 

Micro-moments of learning occur regularly

Leaders model curiosity by sharing their ignorance on a topic and asking questions. Employees are empowered to ask questions, poke at proposals.

Space is created for reflection and review

The team takes time to learn from past performances to help with future improvements. Retrospectives allow teammates to discuss what went well and what didn’t go so well.
