Poor Workplace Culture Creates Fear and Derails Organization Success

Fear isn’t reserved for scary situations or horror movies. Psychological fear is rampant in the workplace due to a culture where mistrust, suspicion, and ineffective leadership rule. Merely walking into a dysfunctional office environment can cause stress and physiological effects like rapid heartbeats and sweating. The results are devastating, preventing them from making sound decisions on the job—or any decisions at all.

At ACT Performance Solutions, we leverage the power of the 4 Stages of Psychological Safety™ to help you create a psychologically safer workplace for your team. Inspired by a culture of rewards, not punishment, your team will be inspired to bring value to the workplace.

It Starts with Psychological Safety

Great organizational culture starts at the core with psychological safety, which is far more than providing enjoyable recreational activities or company-wide events. This conversation is centered around…

An organization that is free of secrets or areas where negativity festers.

High-performing teams that embrace inclusivity and foster innovation.

A steady influx of applications and an unbeatable retention rate of top talent.

Employees continually strive to outdo themselves without coercion.

A place where high levels of accountability are the norm.

A place where everyone's opinion counts and every voice receives the respect it deserves.

Psychological safety is the beating heart of successful cultures and teams. It is an invaluable foundation to foster growth, inclusion, and performance – all essential for success in today’s workplace. The importance of psychological safety has been scientifically proven, with numerous studies showing that it greatly impacts team effectiveness.
