Psychological safety is both the beginning and the goal. It’s essential for everything else – the projects and planning. And it’s the goal for community living – without it, what would be the point of community?
If we know we’re safe, no matter what is going on for us, then we can tap into our sense of belonging, contribution and mattering. We can show up as who we are and see others and be seen more fully.
Psychological safety is not opposed to effectiveness – quite the opposite, they mutually support each other. We will explore how!
In this intensive, we will look at conditions that are known to contribute to psychological safety, and we’ll gather practical ideas on how to create them in our communities.
This session will draw from practice but also from research on psychological safety in teams (a topic Sociocracy For All has worked on as part of grant work in 2023/24)
