Course Overview

This highly interactive workshop unpacks Psychological Safety, based on the world renown researchers Timothy Clark, Brené Brown, Amy Edmonson, and David Rock. The workshop walks each leader through 4 stages humans must take to move from inclusion to innovation. The 5-module course is held online in 90-minute sessions. This workshop jumps out of the theory and into actionable and tangible steps leaders can take to really incorporate Psychological Safety in the work environment.

You’ll gain detailed, hands-on knowledge of psychological safety, including:

  • Define psychological safety as a concept
  • Explain the 4 stages framework
  • Align your team with common language, understanding, and conceptual framework 
  • Action plan and next steps for each stage

You can expect to dig into your personal leadership values, assumptions, norms, and bias. When this course has been completed, attendees will see the current state clearly and take steps to transform your own leadership to incorporate psychological safety.

Also, expect an engaging online learning environment where we’ll not just study Psychological Safety theory but also practice skills and develop competency together. To carry out this richer online experience, we have a few expectations from you.

Active Cohort Engagement

Effective collaboration requires connection and trust, so we will invest some time getting to know each other and we will stick together through the entire workshop.


Our sessions run for 90 minutes. We expect you to be at each session for the duration of the workshop. You will receive a calendar invitation for each of these sessions with links to videoconferencing and virtual collaboration tools.

Workshop Tools

You will be expected to complete a pre-workshop orientation before class starts in the days leading up to the first day of the workshop. In the orientation, you'll complete steps that ensure you can access and know how to use the videoconferencing and collaboration tools. Instructions will be provided after you register a few days before the workshop begins.
