Directed autonomy and psychological safety in the workplace. These two concepts seem radical when compared to traditional control and command workplace where managers tell people what to do and how to do it. However, the keys to unlocking the potential in any workplace are: 1. Giving employees the freedom to exercise independence within a framework of support and guidance. 2. Providing a safe environment for employees to be themselves and communicate authentically. When you hire smart people, then constrain them with bureaucracy or an environment that doesn’t allow them to be honest, you’re not able to tap into their full intellectual and creative capacity. In this session, we’ll discuss these concepts and provide practical tools for embedding them into your workplace regardless of industry or culture. These ideas are as simple as they are revolutionary. Attendees will learn how to: 1. Define and understand the concepts of directed autonomy and psychological safety. 2. Understand the roles and responsibilities of managers and employees in a workplace focused on directed autonomy and psychology safety. 3. Build the frameworks and processes that support directed autonomy and psychological safety.
