    00:05 In all of this work, the next definition, which is controversial, sometimes there are different beliefs about the concept of psychological safety.

    00:13 But what it is, is being able to show an employee yourself without fear of negative consequences, because we can't control what's going to happen in terms of how people receive or perceive the information we provide.

    00:27 We also cannot not continue the work because of some of the negative consequences.

    00:33 But I've promoted vulnerability and courage a lot.

    00:36 And if people don't feel a sense of psychological safety, it will be difficult to have conversations that facilitate the transformation.

    00:44 And so, I usually say that if I'm the facilitator, because I have control to a certain degree of how people interact with each other? I do say that this is a psychologically safe space because as the facilitator, I can ask someone to excuse themselves who is being disrespectful or disparaging someone which discourages people from fully participating in the workshops.

    01:13 I can ask that person to leave.

    01:15 And I think about, I hate extremes, but I think about we could also call it insecurity.

    01:20 But we do want to make sure if you are facilitating these workshops or the transformational type changes, trainings, whatever it is, that you can have security in there if necessary.

    01:33 But we hope that people who show up in these spaces are showing up because they really do want to be a part of the change.
