In this episode, we talk about a fearless workplace culture with guest speaker Gustavo Razzetti. We discuss the signs of a fear-based workplace, its effects, and some brilliant examples of organizations with strong cultures. Gustavo further discusses the inception of Fearless Culture and how they support teams and companies in developing purpose-driven, agile, and innovative cultures.
A fearless culture, according to Gustavo, is about creating the appropriate conditions for people to do their best job. It's all about how employees feel about their workplace, which encompasses far more than employee perks and benefits. It begins with promoting psychological safety, or the belief that people can express themselves, be themselves and share their thoughts without the fear of being judged or punished. It also includes how people use feedback to grow and learn from one another. Finally, team building activities play an important role in shaping employee engagement and camaraderie.
