Too afraid to try: Innovation is impossible without psychological safety

Innovation and creativity are inextricably linked. However, in the murky waters of ambiguity we often lose our way. We cling to what is known and what is safe, and create environments where accountability and preserving the status quo trumps the potential gains of innovation.

For us to truly innovate, we need to foster environments of psychological safety: where we are certain about some things so we can embrace the uncertainty of others. In this session we will dig into research, some stories from the trenches and best practices to find how we can unlock innovation and creativity through creating a place where your team feels safe to try.
