Conquer the most essential adaptation to the knowledge economy The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth offers practical guidance for teams and organizations who are serious about success in the modern economy. With so much riding on innovation, creativity, and spark, it is essential to attract and retain quality talentbut what good does this talent do if no one is able to speak their mind? The traditional culture of "fitting in" and "going along" spells doom in the knowledge economy. Success requires a continuous influx of new ideas, new challenges, and critical thought, and the interpersonal climate must not suppress, silence, ridicule or intimidate. Not every idea is good, and yes there are stupid questions, and yes dissent can slow things down, but talking through these things is an essential part of the creative process. People must be allowed to voice half-finished thoughts, ask questions from left field, and brainstorm out loud; it creates a culture in which a minor flub or momentary lapse is no big deal, and where actual mistakes are owned and corrected, and where the next left-field idea could be the next big thing. This book explores this culture of psychological safety, and provides a blueprint for bringing it to life. The road is sometimes bumpy, but succinct and informative scenario-based explanations provide a clear path forward to constant learning and healthy innovation. Explore the link between psychological safety and high performance Create a culture where its safe to express ideas, ask questions, and admit mistakes Nurture the level of engagement and candor required in todays knowledge economy Follow a step-by-step framework for establishing psychological safety in your team or organization Shed the "yes-men" approach and step into real performance. Fertilize creativity, clarify goals, achieve accountability, redefine leadership, and much more. The Fearless Organization helps you bring about this most critical transformation.

  1. Ett budskap som drunknar i alla ord
    Stefan, 30 december 2021

    Ännu en bok som använder alldeles för många sidor till en ytlig beskrivning av området. Det centrala budskapet har verkligen ett värde men det kan presenteras mycket mer sammanfattat och kärnfullt än så här

  2. Den ena sidan...
    B Magnusson, 16 oktober 2019

    Beteendevetenskapliga böcker är bra men handlar ofta om den ena sidan - här hur man bygger "orädda" grupper. Man borde i samma bok behandla hur det kommer sig att det kan bli tvärtom - rent destruktiva grupper!

    Att in samma bok fokusera på det omvända resultatet. Det görs inte här eller ens reflekteras över att kan ske?

    Annars är det stimulerande information!
