What is psychological safety and what does it mean for you and your team? Join us in Charleston to find out, no matter where in the world you might be!
Live! From Charleston with PRC
Join us on Tuesday, May 22 at 9 am EST, tune in to hear Dr. Michael Leonard’s keynote presentation, “The Power of Culture in Transforming Healthcare” as part of the 2018 Excellence in Healthcare Conference. Dr. Leonard will address the critical importance of psychological safety and the factors which improve an emotionally safe culture. To get even more out of this opportunity, slots are still available to attend the conference in person, please register here.
Though creating a safe and productive culture may seem intuitive, promoting such an environment can only be achieved through careful awareness of the existing workplace culture, paired with self-aware feedback and explicit behaviors, both of which Dr. Leonard will discuss.
Because culture is the glue that enables the consistent delivery of high quality, patient-centered care, it’s critically important that players of all levels understand their role in promoting psychological safety. This keynote will offer a practical framework for guiding a systematic approach to safe, highly reliable care, as well as tools and concepts that organizations can readily apply to create or add value.
