Psychological Safety and Anzeneering

Psychological Safety or simply Safety is the extent to which a person or team views the social climate as conducive to interpersonal risk (A. Edmondson). Did you know that you can measure it? Use Amy Edmondson’s site.

Inspired by Josh Kerievsky’s portmanteau combining anzen (Japanese word for “safety”) and engineering, Anzeneering is “safety engineering.” Leaders at all levels should be actively working to create psychological safety in teams and throughout the organization, since it is the foundation for innovation and high performance.
