If you lead a team of technical experts in a safety-focused organization like a scientific lab, an electric utility, a fire department, or a hospital...

And if you're seeking innovative, practical ways to reduce unwanted errors and improve human reliability on your team...

...then join us in this free 45-minute webinar. 


The concept of Psychological Safety is not new. MIT professors Edgar Schein and Warren Bennis first proposed it in 1965. But thanks to the pioneering work of Amy Edmondson at Harvard, more people have likely learned about Psychological Safety in the last decade than in the last half century.

The real trick is to transform good theory into effective, real-world practice. 

So in this webinar, we'll focus on three practical answers to this question...

"What concrete steps can I take to actually improve Psychological Safety in my team?"


~ Agenda -- In this fast-paced 45-minute workshop, you'll discover:

  1. How Google found that Psychological Safety is the secret ingredient of their most successful teams
  2. A quick visual illustration of the evidence showing that Psychologically Safe teams can reduce errors by 90% compared to blame-based teams
  3. Three concrete, practical, non-obvious techniques you can use immediately to improve Psychological Safety in your team

Expect about 30 minutes of presentation and about 15 minutes for Q&A.

~ Audience -- This webinar is ideal for innovative, front-line leaders in high-hazard industries including: electric utilities, scientific laboratories, fire departments, and and hospitals. 

~ Handout -- You'll get a one-page summary so you can immerse yourself in the workshop without worrying about taking notes.

~ Technology -- We'll use Zoom. Here's a quick system test.

~ Cost -- None. It's free.

~ Use -- For personal use only. No recording or for-profit or commercial reuse without our explicit written permission. Thanks.

"Jake has played an integral role in re-shaping culture and behaviors around safety and work planning and control... The use of fail-safes, adaptive thinking, and peer checks are becoming part of the way we do things." 

~ Work Planning & Control Manager at a Scientific Research Laboratory


"[Jake] has a gift of explaining Human Performance Improvement (HPI) to all of our people. We have a diverse audience from engineers, environmentalists, finance, human resources, and field construction management and testing teams. Jake was able to teach HPI processes and techniques to all of them. We have seen great improvement where we have successfully incorporated Jake’s HPI strategies."
