Keep it Real: How to Build a Fearless Team

We often stay silent at work, fearing negative consequences. This silence can lead to costly mistakes and missed opportunities. The solution is building an environment and team culture where people feel comfortable sharing concerns and ideas without judgment. This talk will highlight the importance of psychological safety, an environment where open communication and constructive criticism are encouraged by the managers and leaders. Real-world examples and business cases will illustrate the dangers of staying silent and the benefits of speaking up.
It will draw on Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson’s book, The Fearless Organization, and attendees will learn three key strategies to build a fearless team: 
  1. 1. Framing Your Work Accurately: Clearly define goals and connect them to the company’s mission. Normalize failure to promote risk-taking.
  2. 2. Soliciting Criticism: Encourage feedback from direct reports and cross functional stakeholders. Embrace “hard conversations.”
  3. 3. Giving Feedback: Utilize frameworks like Radical Candor to provide constructive criticism and build trust.
