Psychological safety describes an environment where people feel able to express themselves without fear that others will think less of them. In the workplace, that translates to employees feeling comfortable speaking up - whether they're sharing ideas, asking questions, expressing concerns or acknowledging mistakes. Psychological safety is also the belief that you won't be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes – a shared belief held by members of a team that others on the team will not embarrass, reject, or punish them for doing so.

  • corporate wellbeing
  • psychological safety
  • workplace wellbeing


In this fast-paced, hour-long and light-touch taster session, psychotherapist / trainer / facilitator Darren Cheek will explore and plant the seeds of how psychological safety can be achieved.

We will explore the key themes and contributors to creating safe work spaces, which in turn will encourage an increasing ease with:

Raising difficult issues or concerns

Nurture the ability to admit errors or mistakes

Grow confidence in order to offer different opinions

And even encourage happy and comfortable disagreement.
