Becoming a Psychologically Safe Leader

Individual being a psychologically safe leader

In order to become a psychologically safe leader, one must also ensure that they are attending to their own psychological safety. Learners will complete a number of assessments, geared to understanding strengths and opportunity areas in the arena of intrapersonal skills and behaviours that rely on those skills. Developing a personal action plan will help you to identify your mental health needs and define how you show up each day for your team.
