Current behavioral science, neuroscience and corporate research shows that when it comes to optimal team performance what really matters is less about who is on the team, and more about how the team works together. A research group within Google identified psychological safety as the leading indicator of team effectiveness and high performance. Specifically, individuals and teams work best in an environment where they feel:

  • Included
  • Safe when learning something new
  • Comfortable making contributions
  • At ease when challenging the status quo
  • Without fear of being embarrassed, marginalized or punished in some way
