13th Annual PSPS Leadership Forum

A Message from Our 2019 Leadership Forum Co-Chairs
Julie Wright & Dean Becker


"This was the best PSPS Speaker to date."

"Amy was engaging and thought provoking - a valuable day!"

"It was an awesome day all around!"


Just a few of the comments from those that attended the "Sold Out" PSPS Leadership Forum on October 10, 2019 with Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School. PSPS was pleased to offer this event at a new venue this year - The Loews Hotel. Amy captured the attention of over 500 attendees, which included PSPS members and non-members from the general Philadelphia area business community.


Amy led us through "Exploring Psychological Safety in the Workplace" helping us understand why employees hold back on communicating issues, what psychological safety is and isn't, and the relationship between psychological safety and motivation. Amy provided many evidence-based situations to help explain these concepts and engaged the participants in discussing their own situations. She then moved on to "Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace" focusing on how Leadership can build a fearless organization and understanding why and how to celebrate failure.


The energy was high the entire morning and Amy facilitated some great discussions and provided the audience time to ask questions. For those who attended, slides from the presentation were provided.


After the event, at the VIP Luncheon, Amy joined us for lunch and answered a few additional questions. Amy was quite impressed by the caliber of the audience - the questions and comments offered which in turn validates the quality/interest/capability of our PSPS Community - one we are all proud to be connected with!
