Psychological safety is crucial to enable human flourishing. According to the FCA, creating an environment where employees feel safe to share ideas and speak up where they see issues, results in more productive and innovative businesses. It reduces the potential for inappropriate risk taking or behaviour which can result in major incidents of misconduct, causing harm to consumers and markets.

This course will examine the factors that organisations need to consider to when it comes to creating cultures that really do enable people to speak up on issues, to present a new idea or innovation, and to challenge the status quo. It will give participants strategies and tools to create a culture of psychological safety for all employees.
