Employee's psychological safety is a critical consideration for any leader. Psychological safety is the belief that one can bring their whole selves to work, express opinions and offer suggestions without the fear of reprimand, and where taking interpersonal risks is allowed and even promoted.

Evidence is clear on the damning outcomes of negative workplace cultures, where employees fear speaking up and where trust between team members and leadership is low. Poorer health outcomes are just some of the consequences, as are fatigue, stress and burnout. Conversely, the benefits of psychologically safe workplaces are abundant, including higher performance, creativity, engagement, morale and better employee wellbeing. Psychologically safe workplaces are characterised by effective team work and problem solving, essential in modern, knowledge-intensive workplaces.
