but, what is psychological safety? 

Simply put, psychological safety is where employees feel safe to take risks, express their ideas and opinions, and be authentic without fear of negative consequences. 

Implementing psychological safety in the workplace can nurture a positive workplace culture that values diversity and belonging. 

When employees feel safe to express their unique perspectives and experiences, it creates an inclusive environment that celebrates differences. 

A psychologically safe workplace fosters creativity and innovation as diverse ideas and approaches are encouraged and embraced. 

Plus, psychological safety is pivotal in reducing employee turnover, as individuals are likely to stay with an organization where they feel safe, supported, and connected. 

This saves costs associated with recruitment and training and contributes to the company's reputation and brand image as an employer of choice. 

By cultivating a positive work atmosphere and promoting positive relationships among employees, employers can create a positive and thriving environment that unlocks the full potential of their workforce.
