In this episode I visit with Amy Edmondson about her upcoming keynote speech at IMPACT2019, entitled “The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety for Learning, Innovation, and Growth”. Some of the highlights from the podcast include:

  1. Beginning in the 1990s Edmondson began research how organizations are made better by creating safe spaces for employees to speak up.
  2. Why listening is the key trait for every leader.
  3. Your organization can have stretch goals but you must have open ears.
  4. How failure to listen to employees who speak up can cause business losses.
  5. Information on why you should attend ECI’s IMPACT2019.
