Secure to Innovate and Create

A few weeks ago I read Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown which has challenged me to think about vulnerability and how I dare my own limits to be a better communicator. Looking at the State of the Sector report by Gatehouse and the Edelman Trust Barometer I am even more curious about how the conditions in our workplaces allow us to be creative and innovative. I am running this survey to try and understand whether psychological safety is something that is important to our industry regardless of specialism.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation creativity and change.

Create your own user feedback survey

For some context psychological safety is a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking. It can be defined as "being able to show and employ one's self without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status or career" (Kahn 1990, p. 708). In psychologically safe teams, team members feel accepted and respected.

I would really appreciate it if you could feel out this short survey. I would also love to hear your thoughts or experiences.
