Psychological Safety - Specific Standards and Abstract Ideals
I'm working on an exercise to help change agents increase the psychological safety in their organizations. I think that there are four components that are important:
- Specific Standards (No name calling, no physical threats)
- Abstract Ideals (Respect, Curiosity, Appreciation, etc.)
- Prioritizing Ideals (because they invariably conflict)
- Holding Standards and Ideals (how do you hold people accountable to the standards and ideals)
- Does this capture the baseline set of psychological safety items that everyone should consider for their workplace?
- Do you have any items that you think should be on the list of specific standards -- or in the list of ideals that everyone should aspire to?
