    As Google’s studies (project Aristotele, 2015) have clearly shown, psychological safety is the key to outperforming teams. In a psychologically safe team, members can speak out loud without having to be afraid afraid of being criticized. They dare to be themselves. Also Patrick Lencione has emphasized trust as a basis for effective team work. But how do you build TRUST and PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY in teams? Some tools & excerises would be a great asset to the Positive Psychology Toolkit!

    Hi Jarkko,

    Thanks for your suggestion. We really have to look into this, because I am personally not aware of any (tested) interventions.
    I do know this video:

    I think that many topics that relate to psychological safety, such as vulnerability (https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability) and recognizing and valuing each other’s strengths offer a potentially effective starting point for interventions.
