Curing DEI and Cultural Issues in the Modern Workplace with Psychological Safety. Presented by WeLearn
1:00 p.m. ET
WeLearn has partnered with DX Learning Solutions to bring you this timely webcast about why psychological safety should be a priority in your organization. Join us as we explore resolutions for DEI and cultural issues in the modern workplace.
Silence kills business. Silence kills relationships. Silence is a leadership killer. As culture is a mirror of leadership, then silence can ruin culture. Its critically important for people to feel like they have a voice and can speak up about difficult matters without fear of retribution. It’s just as important for people to feel comfortable being true authentic selves. That is psychological safety. Psychological safety is where everyone in a team leaves nothing on the table. Where there is vulnerability, candor, and we don’t hold back important information. Where people feel a sense of inclusiveness, empathy, and fairness. If we do it right, it is the simplest and purest way to build a people-first culture with low attrition levels and high employee engagement. But it’s not that easy.
Why is it not easy? The brain has 165 biases that most of us have no idea exist that inhibit our ability to be vulnerable, empathetic, and inclusive. These are the leadership qualities needed to build psychological safety.
