What are the most important concepts (steps) in building a safe culture?

  1. Create a Culture of Wining
    We care for our employees and support them for the success of the organization.

  2. Create a Culture of Participation
    We value our employees and their ideas and collaboration for a better organization.

  3. Create a Culture of Learning
    We develop and invest in our employees for the best of the organization.

Summarizing: Both the employees and the company win and thrive as a result.


1. Play to Win vs Playing not to Lose - a Culture of Winning

When leaders do not offer their people a safe space:

  • The employees will start to play it safe themselves - with all negative consequences.
  • They will avoid being vocal or trying new approaches - holding back in their engagement.
  • They will hesitate to take ownership - they don’t want the risk of failing or being judged.


2. Redefine your Leadership Role - a Culture of Participation

  • In many workplaces, leaders are seen as authorities who know best, giving instructions, and judging how well they’re carried out.
  • But in a fearless workplace, leaders instead set the direction and goals, then encourage people to contribute their own ideas and insights.
  • Setting up structures specifically for sharing information. These can be regular workshops, focus groups, or meetings. 


3. Reframe Failure as Learning Situations - a Culture of Learning

  • Being OK with failure at work is the first step in creating a fearless environment.
  • When team leaders start talking about failure as something that often happens and as a learning opportunity, people become comfortable taking risks, trying out new things, and openly discussing their mistakes.


What might happen, when a safe culture is ignored or neglected?

When leaders do not consciously work on a safe space culture, you will often find:

  1. A Culture of Competition
    We do care very much for the numbers and customers - resulting in anxiety among employees.

  2. A Culture of Control
    We do value that employees just follow the instructions and rules - resulting in blaming and less engagement.

  3. A Culture of Condemnation
    We develop an error-free culture - resulting in blame shifting and finger pointing and people hiding.

Summarizing: The organization has focus and is a winner, resulting in anxiety for the employees.
