The concept of "psychological safety" has gained focus of interest in workplaces over recent
decades, emphasising the importance of creating a safe environment for employees.

When employees feel psychologically safe at work, they are more likely to speak up, share ideas, admit mistakes, and seek help, all of which are crucial for workplace success.

Safe to Speak explores the behaviours and conditions that foster and hinder psychological safety at work.

Participants will leave this training with practical tools, resources, and models to apply in their workplaces, enabling them to promote a safe and thriving environment.
