Webinar Summary

Psychological safety is a key aspect of building a healthy workplace culture by creating an environment that enables people to be themselves. This culture allows employees to feel safe and be their authentic selves. Ensuring employees feel safe can reduce turnover and operational costs while also improving productivity. 

Join Ren Navarro and Damon Arredondo as they discuss some of the key elements of psychological safety in the workplace. How do we identify it, and how do we create an environment that promotes psychological safety?
