A work environment that stifles ideas and inhibits people from asking for help or sharing problems is a symptom of fear-based leadership.

Psychological safety, on the other hand, is a sense of permission for candor at work.

In this episode, I interview Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School and author of The Fearless Organization.

What we talked about:

  • What a psychologically safe workplace looks like
  • Examples of fear-based leadership versus asking good questions
  • How to create a climate of psychological safety
  • Emotional intelligence helps leaders promote psychological safety
