    Now THIS is a message that I wish everyone knew about Had I known about psychological safety and the 4 stages earlier, I think I could ve been a much better leader in my past roles It is so important to create a safe space where everyone feels included, safe, and secure in where they are in a group both socially and psychologically or within themselves.Not only is this great to implement as a leader, but it s also an important message for parents, teachers etc Could you imagine how a home dynamic could change if we all felt safe to share opinions. any opinion honestly. but especially those contrary to the popular home belief For me, being the people pleaser personality, things like disagreement or confrontation in the home were especially uncomfortable Note I say WERE because since reading this book, that has changed I would find myself simply agreeing with what all the others said and not giving much thought to any of it After being enlightened by this book, I began looking through a different lens and noticed that some of my other younger siblings did the same as I did No opinion, no voice I didn t want that for them so I made a personal change I started asking questions, inviting other opinions, giving credit where needed to build their confidence All the things you learn in the book and surprisingly, the others caught on It look some time, but it happened Change happened And our home will remain a happier place because of it So, read the book Maybe you ll be just as surprised as I was of where the changes will take place.

    Timothy Clark s The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation deals with an all too relevant topic the need for organizational leaders to build psychological safety for their employees encouraging engagement, success, and inclusion Clark has unique qualifications to speak about this subject He is an organizational consultant with many of the world s top companies like American Express, CEO in his own right with his company LeaderFactor, and an Oxford trained social scientist so this book is thus laden with the sort of research laden approach to delving into the issue it deserves His sure hand as a writer derives from experience this is his fourth and perhaps best book Clark has an unabashed penchant for sharing his own personal experiences in this realm and it makes for a invigorating book The opening preface relating his time working in a steel mill following his Oxford departure is alone worth the price of the book frankly because he writes with such disarming thoughtful intimacy The preface is rife with literary allusions, Key Questions and Concepts, as well as a couple of illustrations reinforcing his prose The same strengths are present in the introduction as well ABOUT THE AUTHOR www.leaderfactor.comHe divides the book into four parts, covering each stage, and opens each with a quote Clark summarizes each Key Concept and Question at the end of those individual parts as he did in the preface and introduction The unity and strong overall structure of the book is an abiding hallmark of Clark s previous texts there s an all encompassing seamlessness in his presentation of these concepts The intellectual bent of this work nevertheless has a very down to earth aura inviting readers of every ilk to enjoy and dive deeper into Clark s thinking.This is not a book where, on my first reading, you can cherry pick passages It demands a beginning to end reading on the first go but subsequent re readings will allow you to go to relevant passages and glean necessary insights The tremendous amount of research defining the book has varied sources it is clear Clark, if nothing else, is eclectic and informs his work from a wide variety of disciplines In particular, the clear psychological grounding Clark brings to the work gives it a whole dimension of meaning and depth He clearly understands human nature and does an exceptional job of rendering it for readers checklists encompass the book s lessons in concise fashion and illustrate one of its key strengths there is no dross in Clark s work There is not a single wasted word and his articulate shaping of each point makes his insights sharper than many others are capable of Few readers will have encountered such a thorough and affecting guide to achieving psychological safety in an organizational environment, but it goes further many of the book s truths possess universal application extending across a wide spectrum of human life It distinguishes Timothy Clark s The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation as an unique work with enduring value.

    The concept of Psychological Safety is both often misunderstood, and essential to effective and even innovative groups Psychological Safety is about how comfortable people are sharing and challenging ideas Psychological Safety is a very practical matter It can be related to physical safety as well for example, a factory when team members are reluctant to point out safety issues , and business success and innovation Timothy Clark s new book which I got an advance copy of explains the concept in a clear way and defines a framework you can use to understand where your group be it a work group or a social group stands, and how it can get better.After an overview, the book goes through the 4 stages Inclusion Safety, Learner Safety, and Contributor safety, and Innovator safety, defines each and explains impact on the team dynamic, and what is necessary for each to exist The book helped me to better understand why some groups I ve worked with felt pleasant and productive, and why others felt less so The framework makes reference to other concepts you may have heard, such as Grit, Teaming and safety culture At the core, the book is about business, but the author used examples and analyses from a range of domains, which is both good and bad The good is that it makes it clear how universal these ideas are, in school, work, and interpersonal life The bad is that the book lacks a bit or coherence that could have made it a great book As the book progresses from discussing inclusion safety to challenger safety, the focus shift toward business teams, but maintains connections toward global society issues Personal, and third party stories from the business and non business contexts as well as ideas from the literature on safety and related fields Chapters end with summaries of key points and actions to take, and end notes and references can point you in the right direction if you wish to go deeper.This book is a quick, actionable read You ll learn things you can and should to do move your group to the higher levels in the framework, and understand the situations that might be less salvageable Those in a leadership role, such as managers will find it useful to understand And those not in that explicit role will benefit both from the context it provides to help you to understand why you might be feeling some discomfort in your work place, and also the small things you can do on your own to make it better.
