5 Articles to Promote Thought, Encourage Reflection and Ignite Action

  1. There’s a growing swell of interest and discussion on Safety II, Safety Differently and Human and Organisational Performance. In this article from Andy White at Southpac International, it is emphasized that HOP is not a product or service, and summaries the shift in perspective that a HOP mindset can bring.

  2. High performing teams need psychological safety. Amy Edmondson has spoken about this in a 2014 TEDx talk. In this more recent article from HBR, we are given six steps to increase psychological safety in our own teams, which should result in higher levels of engagement, increased motivation to tackle difficult problems, more learning and development opportunities, and better performance.
