What Is Psychological Safety?

Psychological safety is the feeling of trust and well-being within a team or organization without the fear of consequences. It refers to the belief that one can share ideas, opinions, questions, or mistakes without being judged or ridiculed by any other person. It is an evidence-based, well-researched theoretical construct that lets employees be humans and aids in their optimal performances.

It doesn’t always have to mean everyone will be nice to you despite your behavior or actions. Rather, you can share your thoughts and ideas, promote equality, give feedback, and find a middle ground despite disagreements.

Why Is Psychological Safety Important?


Psychological safety is an important factor in representing your work environment and culture. It holds the key to breaking down the walls of discomfort and promoting a sense of security among employees, leading to a healthy organization.


Fostering psychological safety in a workplace leads to a more vibrant, enthusiastic, and collaborative environment where people can feel innovative, creative, and productive.


It creates a fearless culture that enables talent to speak up, share their ideas, be comfortable taking interpersonal risks, report errors, and solve a multitude of problems efficiently.


Psychological safety encourages a relational, dynamic, and transactional vision that must be nurtured at all levels of the organization. It promotes a people-first culture built on inclusivity, belonging, diversity, equity, trust, and safety.


Fearless organizations give individuals permission to be human, fallible, fail forward, learn, problem-solve, and collaborate. Employees embrace vulnerability, willingly and bravely share good and bad news, ask for help, feel valued, and know what is expected of them.
