Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

Mar 7, 2022

It’s been said that psychological safety is the single biggest contributor to workplace productivity. 

When employees are in a psychologically safe space, they know that their ideas, questions, and concerns are valued, and their contributions are appreciated and mistakes are a sign of learning and development.

In this episode of the Business Chat Podcast, I have a wonderful chat with Dr. John Forbes, a Clinical Psychologist and Director of Delta Psychology. John chats with me  about surviving a toxic workplace by promoting and cultivating psychological safety.

When workers feel that they are valued, heard, and empowered, they produce optimum outcomes. 

Being in a toxic workplace is no easy feat, it’s important for employers to set boundaries and create a work culture that encourages respect among every employee.
