Psychological Safety

The key tenet of high performing teams

The next key component of fostering a culture of belonging is maintaining the practice of psychological safety. It is defined as "the belief that you won’t be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes." This means managers encouraging employees to try new things, speak openly, give honest feedback, which in turn promotes innovation & connection. Creating small moments of inclusion and belonging in day-to-day interactions and creating a space where employees feel confidence in their value.

Emotional Intelligence

Trumps IQ in leadership

Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is becoming a highly valued quality, which includes your ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions. Those with higher EQs tend to show greater empathy towards others, including their co-workers. As such, studies have shown that Emotional Intelligence, has become a strong predictor of job performance. In fact, people with a high EQ and average IQ outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. Build on your EQ to improve your self awareness, boost your people management skills, nurture productive relationships, and leverage the strengths of your team.


Helping others know they are not alone

One of the key components of a culture of belonging is creating a space for everyone to feel included, especially marginalized groups, and consistently practicing empathy and inclusiveness. Research by Google reveals that the best teams engage with each other from a continuous place of empathy. Active listening is the most vital part of practicing empathy.
