Creating Psychologically safe Environments for Performance and Wellbeing This webinar will explore the topic of psychological safety, understanding what it is, what it isn’t, and the impact it can have within sports teams.
We will consider the impact of power in relationships and our role as psychologists – working with coaches and systems to shape environments that enable performance enhancement whilst maintaining wellbeing.
By the end of this webinar, we hope that you will have a few practical ideas that will allow you to consider how to support the development of psychological safety in your systems.
