Main character affected is the thinking smurf, the one who wears the glasses, the one who always get tossed for saying, well lets say: "more than he should", From childhood, we manifest honest curiosity, its creative curiosity, but as we all grow up, it just fades away.. Turned out, saying more is ok..
A linked in course titled "Creating a Culture of Learning (2017)", in the introductory session, the instructor Britt Andreatta, PHD, shares a powerful quote "In fact, Harvard professor, Dr. Amy Edmondson, has coined the term psychological safety, and has found it as the key differentiation for creating high performing teams. She defines psychological safety as a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. Both learning and failing are crucial. A metaphor that I find useful is that of a tree. For a tree to thrive and grow into its fullest potential, it needs to be rooted in soil and the quality of that soil determines what we see above the surface. The soil represents how people are treated when they take risks and make mistakes."
Will you speak up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes more often from now on? I think we should all do..
