Toxic cultures lead to missed opportunities, failure, and sometimes disaster. In a healthy speak-up culture, however, not only do leaders have the skills and attributes to hear concerns, ideas, and even voices of dissent, they also acknowledge, encourage, and reward them.

This fundamental ability of leaders to create psychological safety—to view the organization and the people in it as a living, breathing organism they are meant to support—is vital to the long-term success of any organization. Creating a speak-up culture is the responsibility and the advantage of every leader who wants to be great at leading, and who wants to create a better version of humanity while they do. Understand how a speak-up culture can turn into a constructive-feedback culture for your team and organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the definition and importance of psychological safety, in the workplace and beyond, and why speak-up cultures are good for people and good for business.
  • Discover the two components of a speak-up culture—Encourage and Reward—and how this can help to create an open feedback culture.
  • Glean and practice tactical and proven methods to listen to your people and cultivate a speak-up culture.
