We are excited to release our newest CoachingOurselves peer group learning topic for organizations, “Psychological Protection at Work”.
Is your organization committed to being a psychologically safe workplace? Are you looking for an effective way to support employee engagement, promote wellbeing, and welcome diversity? Get your people actively working together to create a healthier, positive workplace by exploring the bedrock of organizational effectiveness: psychological protection.
There is no exact recipe for psychological protection—it is an emergent quality of the relationships within groups—yet certain behaviours and skills have proven to be key ingredients. Ensure leaders of all levels understand that their behaviours have far reaching impact on employee effectiveness and organizational dynamics.
From larger social issues, such as the pandemic or politics, to office hierarchies, to deeply personal concerns around DEI or financial stresses, there are all kinds of reasons people may feel uncomfortable speaking up. But the resilience and, ultimately, the success of your organization depends on your employees being able to bring their opinions, skills, and concerns to the collective table, without fear of judgement or retribution.
This CoachingOurselves topic will help your people to:
- Model the key behaviours that contribute to psychological protection.
- Appreciate the crucial role of psychological protection for team effectiveness and innovation.
- Contribute towards improving the organizational structures and processes which provide psychological protection for everyone.
With this CoachingOurselves topic, learning professionals can deliver a 60-min. workshop for managers, leaders or HR professionals on Psychological Protection at Work. This topic is just one of several impactful topics that align with the Mental Health Commission of Canada and Excellence Canada’s “Thirteen Psychosocial Factors” for a healthy workplace. Learn how this topic and many other versatile CoachingOurselves topics can be woven into your existing L&D programs.
