About the session

Over the last four years, the world has experienced an unprecedented shift to remote and hybrid work environments. This poses questions for those interested in high-performing teams because physical distance from our teammates has created challenges to fostering and increasing psychological safety.  

With collaboration from Amy Edmondson and Mark Mortensen, this talk presents original research on and explores the relationship between remote environments and psychological safety.

Participants will learn about factors that impact safety in a remote environment and ways to promote safety in remote and hybrid teams, as well as implications for leadership, teamwork and generative work across all environments, in-person, hybrid and remote.

Participant takeaways:

  • What effect does an all-remote environment have on team members' psychological safety
  • Which factors, such as previous in-person relationships, impact safety in a remote environment, and how much
  • How might we design, support and lead teams and organisations to foster safety, given the likelihood of continued remote and hybrid environments
