How to Approach Psychological Safety

Managers must create an environment that encourages employees to share aspects of their personal situations as relevant to their work scheduling or location and/or to trust employees to make the right choices for themselves and their families, balanced against the needs of their teams.

Management’s responsibility is to expand the domain of which work-life issues are safe to raise.

Strategies to Create a Culture of Psychological Safety

Here's five steps to create a culture of psychological safety:

  1. Help your team recognize not only their challenges, but yours as well.
  2. Expose your own vulnerability by sharing your own WFH/hybrid work personal challenges and constraints.
  3. Don’t expect your employees to share their most personal challenges right away.
  4. Explain how disclosure has allowed you to collaboratively come up with better solutions.
  5. Be ready to censure those who inappropriately take advantage of shared personal information.
