Over 30 years of research by Harvard’s Amy Edmondson shows that organisations and teams with higher levels of psychological safety perform better on almost any metric or KPI, in comparison to those that have low psychological safety. Google’s Project Aristotle also confirmed that psychological safety was the number one factor differentiating their highest-performing teams.
