Episode 5: How to Make Better Mistakes

Psychological safety is the belief that you can bring your whole self to work, and speak up with ideas and feedback – as well as make mistakes – without fear of punishment. But, how do you do that if you don’t trust your boss or your co-workers?

In this episode we explore what makes some work environments open and collaborative, and others closed-off and fear-inducing – and how to deal with either scenario.
