Create inclusive and collaborative
environments that foster innovation
We all need to feel included. We all want to learn and contribute.
Psychological safety responds to a basic human need to feel safe. It appears whenever people interact with each other: in our family, at school or at work.
The increasing demands for innovation and agility are challenging the way we work.
Skills are changing: for example autonomy, accountability, how we collaborate or the role of leadership.
This is why there is a growing interest for psychological safety in business. Because it is the key to high employee engagement, inclusion, and innovation.
THE “4 STAGES” FRAMEWORK
The “4 Stages of psychological safety” by Timothy R. Clark is the roadmap for individuals and organizations to achieve and maintain high levels of psychological safety and to create inclusive and high engagement cultures.
WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY?
“Psychological safety is an environment of rewarded vulnerability”.
When our vulnerability is rewarded, we engage, contribute meaningfully and enter an active mode of performance.
WHAT IS "THE 4 STAGES FRAMEWORK"?
The “4 Stages” help people and companies to achieve and maintain high levels of PS and to create inclusive and high engagement cultures.
The framework is based on the natural progress on human needs. There are 4 fundamental needs that exist across nations, cultures or any kind of group: INCLUSION, LEARNING, CONTRIBUTING and IMPROVING.
1. Inclusion safety
satisfies the need to connect with others and to belong to a group. It allows us to feel accepted and develop a shared identity.
2. Learner safety
satisfies the need to learn and grow. It allows us to feel safe as we engage in all aspects of the learning process: asking, giving and receiving feedback, and making mistakes.

3. Contributor safety
satisfies the need to contribute and make a difference. The more we contribute, the more confidence and competence we have. Contributor safety, empowers people with autonomy to be more engaged, accountable and productive.
4. Challenger safety
satisfies the need for improvement. it allows to learn and grow. It allows us to feel safe enough to challenge the satus quo, without the risk of damaging our personal reputation or status quo. It is the state that fosters innovation.
