Topic: The SAFE-O-METER: A Psychological Safety Workshop
About the workshop: More than anything else, the level of psychological safety determines teams’ effectiveness, according to research by Google. Psychological safety is defined as the “shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking”. In a fast paced digital world cross functional teams often use Scrum to be able to quickly learn and adjust to customer demands. And for Scrum to work really well, psychological safety in teams enacting it should be high. In this talk/workshop I will shortly dive into the theory behind team effectiveness in general and psychological safety in particular, as published by Professor Amy Edmondson and identified by Google’s Project Aristotle. Next to that I will share my experiences with assessing psychological safety in teams. I provide a workshop format of measuring psychological safety. Together with you I’ll discover ways to measure psychological safety and how to foster it as a Scrum Master, Agile Coach or Agile Leader.
About the speaker: I work in IT for over a decade now. Since 2015 as a Scrum Master and since two years I am part of a large scale Agile Transformation, of which my impact involves over 15 teams.
