What you will learn from Michael Methner:

In the rapidly changing world of work, psychological safety is crucial to a team's success. According to a Google study, it is the most important factor for team success. Amy Edmondson defines psychological safety as the individual's conviction to take interpersonal risks.

Learn how to take responsibility, show vulnerability, trust and take risks in a changing world of work. The module, based on the models of Daniel Goleman, Stephen Porges and Richard Schwarz, offers a day of intensive exploration of your personal and professional development.


Topics such as embodying your safe base, showing vulnerability as strength and giving the gift of trust will be in focus. Our Fellows will explore patterns and conditioning to understand why showing vulnerability is often avoided. Recognizing that vulnerability is a strength promotes psychological safety in the team.


Through the module, Fellows will learn to show their truthfulness instead of controlling and give their team the security they need. Encouraging creativity, taking responsible risks and removing the taboos around mistakes are the fruits that bear a secure foundation for personal and professional growth.
