The Flourishing Introvert Talks

Jun 15, 2022

After conducting virtual courses over the last couple of weeks, Joanna was repeatedly asked to share a piece of advice about handling difficult situations that often involve "people." In this episode, our Host dives into the topic of Psychological Safety, to talk about establishing an environment where people can effectively say what needs saying without fear of judgement or humiliation.


Joanna takes us through the work of Dr. Timothy Clark: The Four Stages of Psychological Safety, using the lens of the extraversion bias that plagues so many introverts. This offers a unique perspective on inclusion and contribution and reminds us that we all have a part to play in creating a safe space to communicate for the people around us. The benefits to the organisation and individuals far outweigh the effort required to enable all to be heard.
