Would You Speak Up?

Let's say your manager's boss is proposing an idea. It's not a terrible idea, but you have some concerns. Some questions. You're in a meeting, hearing about that idea, along with your peers, your boss, and other leaders of the company. Do you speak up? Do you keep quiet? What would you do?

In this episode, we talk about one of the most important concepts I've learned this year: psychological safety. We're joined by Harvard Professor of Leadership Amy C. Edmondson to talk about her new book The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth, and I'm excited to introduce you to some ideas in the book.

Also, if you know of a group at your organization that has an upcoming large group gathering and uses outside speakers, let them know about the podcast! I'd love to work with them to help improve their ability to lead and deliver. Learn more at Thanks!
