Maintaining Psychological Safety Under Pressure

We like these thoughts from Shane Haste on how leaders can avoid falling into the “dark side” when the pressure is on. Letting psychological safety get pushed to the side, even for a moment, can cause long-lasting damage to organizational culture. Here’s his advice. Take a pause and ask yourself these three questions:

  • What should I stop doing? What do I think and feel is not working for me and others? What is my team telling me?
  • What should I continue doing? What do I think and feel is working well for me and others around me?
  • What should I start doing? What would I like to be doing that I feel unable to do? What is my team telling me I should do more of? What areas of my personality do I underuse at work?

Great advice!
