Do you know about psychological safety?
It’s all about being able to talk about mistakes or share ideas without feeling judged or afraid of backlash.
So, here’s a quick story for you:
There was this study on medical errors in hospitals. At first, it looked like the best hospital teams were making more mistakes, which didn’t make sense. But, it turned out they weren’t messing up more; they were just more open about discussing those mistakes.
This led to a big “aha” moment: the best teams create a vibe where people aren’t scared to admit when they’ve goofed up. That’s what they called “psychological safety.” When everyone feels safe to speak up, the whole group does better. So, next time you’re working with others, think about making sure everyone feels okay sharing their thoughts. It might be a game-changer!
