Diverse opinions in psychologically safe spaces

Have you ever thought about what your meetings tell you about the culture of your organisation? Meetings are a good ‘pulse point’, revealing a lot about the psychological health of an organisation. How comfortable do participants feel about making contributions, and suggesting alternative viewpoints? Who speaks too little or too much? In this 8-minute podcast, Chloe Shaw explores practical tips for influencing cultural change in your own meetings. She helps you to establish (or build on) an innovative, open meetings culture in both virtual and face-to-face meetings, so that everyone is given a voice, whatever their personal preferences.

Summary of learning messages

  • Meetings reflect your organisational culture
    Meetings are the perfect opportunity to foster an inclusive team culture

  • Psychological safety enables more ‘risky’ contributions
    People need to know it’s OK to challenge the status quo or apparent consensus

  • Innovation happens when you seek diversity of opinion
    If the same ideas are cascaded during meetings, it’s difficult for new solutions to emerge.
