Establishing "psychological safety" is vital to helping teams function optimally. But - how do you do that? 

One of the main ways to create psychological safety is to help people feel seen, heard and understood. We can do that by “Tracking” the speaker, the same way a naturalist might track a deer in the snow. 

Another way to create psychological safety is to assert our own needs, advocate for our ideas and do so while speaking non-violently, without attacking others or their ideas. We can do that by using “Impact Statements”. Impact statements are similar to “I” statements, but with a few important refinements. 

This will be an interactive experience - with some teaching followed by experiential exercises.  You will have the opportunity to practice listening and speaking in a way that promotes psychological safety. You will leave with tools that you can use in any team you are a part of - including your family!

Requests for accommodations can be made when you register to attend. Please provide at least 7 days advance notice.
