Safety® in the

Emotional Safety® is an interactive, online learning experience designed to give your people the knowledge and tools to build a culture of trust and open communication.

When there is emotional safety in the workplace, employees are:

  • Willing to take calculated risks and experiment without fear of retribution if an idea fails.
  • Collaborative and supportive of one another.
  • Comfortable speaking up, even when they have to share bad news.
  • Feel a high level of emotional safety in the workplace.

Does this sound impossible? It’s not when you establish a culture of Emotional Safety® in the workplace. However, it’s hard to shift your culture when only a few people have the necessary language and skills to support your desired state.

Emotional Safety® training enables you to scale learning throughout your organization to accelerate your culture shift.
