What’s Next in Talent and Performance: The Neuroscience of Psychological Safety

  • In the wake of disruptions prompted by COVID-19, the great resignation, geopolitical conflict, and social unrest, leaders and teams struggle to perform while managing an increased sense of ambient threat
  • That sense of threat can have a breathtakingly negative impact on decision-making, emotional regulation, well-being, and employee engagement — all of which ultimately damage business efficacy
  • While resilience and self-regulation may seem like individual issues, leaders and enterprises can play a critical role in mitigating the impacts of threat by promoting a cultural climate that diminishes our perception of threat and enhances a shared sense of purpose, and collegiality — creating a climate of candor and support
  • Science shows that psychologically safe climates drive better talent and business outcomes. Join Christy Pruitt-Haynes of the NeuroLeadership Institute in exploring the critical issues impacting organizations today. Learn how talent leaders can harness neuroscience-backed habits to cultivate psychological safety across organizations
