Leaders need to develop three distinct sets of capabilities, as described above.

  • Setting the Stage accomplishes shared expectations and meaning
  • Inviting Participation builds the confidence amongst team members that voice is welcome
  • Responding productively fosters an orientation towards continuous learning

The matrix above here shows you which behaviours you can use and what activities you can engage in as a leader to foster more psychological safety.


We offer you another free survey to thank you for your interest in the work around psychological safety.

The Learning Organization Survey lets reflect on the wider conditions for learning in your organization.

Normally, you can complete the 54 statement questionnaire in about 20 minutes.

If you take one hour and have a journal at hand, our experience is that the statements are thought provoking and will prompt you to rethink how you look at your culture, processes & structure and leadership style.
