Psychological Safety

Psychological safety is a "shared belief, held by members of a team, that a group is a safe place for taking risks. It is a sense of confidence that the team will not embarrass, reject, or punish someone for speaking up.”(Amy Edmondson, 1999)

This characterizes a working environment filled with trust and mutual respect in which people are comfortable being themselves.

"Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you."

  • Follow citation trails, focusing on papers that surface repeatedly.
