    If you want to seek their advice - they'll appreciate your desire to grow as an employee. If possible, find a mentor. A more experienced colleague who can offer you valuable advice. He or she can also advocate for you when you are being considered for a promotion. Notice how things get done, think about the values of the company, and gain an understanding of the culture of the organization.

    i impressed how clear is your idea, i like it and agree with you, starting from safety, company should reach a level of real connection. I think next step should be "goal alignment ". in a matrix organization now, more than in the past, you find some different trend and goal sometimes in contrast each with other. safe workplace in a ggod achievement always in challenge, but safe relationship will be a primary challenge, and at all levels!

    @Deb Lange- love this post and I feel "safe" to comment. I quote you "Now is the time to take safety to the level of emotional and psychological safety". Absolutely, and safety must be achieved at all levels and dimensions. Safety beings engagement and this in turn promotes cooperation. As I am writing now a buzz on factors that affect human behavior, I must say that very few references included the effect of feeling safe on behaviors. You buzz highlight a crucial point and I am sharing it proudly, Deb.

    I have extremely low levels of trust, and I have been rewarded time and time again for not stepping into a disfunctional team, organization, relationship, conflict or country. I work on solutions as an outsider - direct report to C-Suite, I am not a member of your team, org chart or happy snazzy mission statement....nor am I blinded by them. And you can implement my risk assessments and mitigations or not. I paid by project - do as you will, but often - if the org fails to make changes, I will bet against them. * PS I cleaned up on Enron, it is how I funded my house downpayment and renovations.....pity I wasn't watching the housing market as close as the energy market - i got severely screwed on that - I no longer trust banks, real estate, derivative markets, the Fed, nor stock market.....nor most things apple pie, baseball, hot dogs or Chevrolet.

    #1 Yes Laurent, however, some Managers believe it is up to the employee to create their own safety, or if they agree safety is important, many are unaware of how what is said and done results in intimidation and lack of emotional safety. Management need to look with new eyes of the process of their interactions, the how, not just the what. In fact, there is a whole new suite of expertise Management requires which is being acutely aware of patterns of behaviour and consequences to the fulfilment and performance of teams.

    I've meant - that nonetheless I've been invited in as an IT consultant, not management consultant - I needed to contribute to improving of overall developers teams efficiency and proficiency! Yes, it took a lot of efforts to get access to ears of upper management and get them to support this idea, but it really worth it! At least you know that in order to trample out your traces other needs to step through them!

    Quite an opposite.. First of all - all outlined is adoption of pedagogical methods developed and implemented in the beginning of 20th century (Anton Makarenko and others) + some basics of "social dynamics". Some of those approaches were implemented (not to full extent I have to admit, but with my influence) at three locations and shown VERY positive results.. .
