Seeing What Holds You Back: Applying the S.E.E. Model of Psychological Safety to Unlock Potential
Learning Lab

Presenter: Dr. Allessandria Polizzi


Date: September 13

Track: Create Fearless Environments

About the Session

In 1925, Mary Van Kleeck identified three failures in most organizations: managerial connection, role context, and job security. Nearly 100 years later, Google and Re: Work shared a 2-year study on what makes teams successful — identifying psychological safety as the most critical differentiator in high-performing teams.

Last summer, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) produced the first global standard and guidelines for managing psychosocial health and safety in the workplace to foster innovation, worker commitment, retention, and team effectiveness...the U.S. is nearly a decade behind.

This session will provide participants with a simple framework for identifying hazards and creating an action plan for their organization.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the fundamentals of psychological health and safety, including what it is holistically, how it is implemented globally, and the proven benefits for creating it within your organization.

  2. Learn the S.E.E. framework of psychological safety by looking at the structures, expectations, and environmental context in your organization.

  3. Build an action plan based on your analysis, including how to quantify business impact, and identify steps to get started.
