13th Annual PSPS Leadership Forum

'Building Fearless Organizations for Learning, Innovation & Growth'

With so much riding on innovation, creativity, and spark, it is essential to attract and retain quality talent—but what good does this talent do if no one is able to speak their mind? The traditional culture of “fitting in” and “going along” spells doom in the knowledge economy. Success requires a continuous influx of new ideas, new challenges, and critical thought, and the interpersonal climate must not suppress, silence, ridicule or intimidate. In our upcoming October Leadership Forum, Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School, will discuss Fearless Organizations and how Psychological Safety must be a part of a company’s culture to be successful in the modern world. Amy will offer us practical ideas about building a culture that promotes safety and allows individuals to express their opinions to encourage learning, innovation and growth.

Amy studies teaming, psychological safety, and leadership, and her articles have been published numerous academic and management outlets, including Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Harvard Business Review and California Management Review. Her books –Teaming: How organizations learn, innovate and compete in the knowledge economy (Jossey-Bass, 2012),Teaming to Innovate (Jossey-Bass, 2013) and Extreme Teaming (Emerald, 2017) – explore teamwork in dynamic organizational environments. In Building the future: Big teaming for audacious innovation (Berrett-Koehler, 2016), she examines the challenges and opportunities of teaming across industries to build smart cities. Her new book, The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation and Growth (Wiley, 2018), offers a practical guide for organizations serious about success in the modern economy.
