We all thrive in respectful environments. Creating a respectful environment requires a mental agility to hold many versions of the truth and an informed trust that enables the magic of divergent thinking to innovate and solve problems.
Leaders who want to create psychologically safe work environments need more than ‘off-the shelf’ coaching techniques. They require personal awareness, brain agility and courage to adapt and influence the teams around them.
Understanding and implementing the latest psychological insights in creating healthy and productive environments is not easy. You need to be in touch with your own psychology and to be able to notice and manage your own triggers and psychological blocks. Your brain health needs to be sharp to enable fluid intelligence; the part of the brain that is needed to solve problems independently of your acquired knowledge.
I have developed a bespoke coaching programme for leaders who know that digging deep is the only way to finding new ways to grow.
