Listen to this Tedx Talk with Amy Edmondson on psychological safety and three things you can do to create psychological safety in your workplace. There is a spot in your workbook for taking notes as you listen if you wish.

You have to create an account to fill out the scan, the organizational review or the employee survey, but it is all free. After you fill out the Initial Scan yourself, make some notes in your workbook about why your score is where it is. Have your immediate team fill it out and then have a discussion about how things are and what needs to change.
Maximizing Mental Energy
After you watch this video, find the reflective writing exercise in your workbook. Set a timer for 20 minutes and write about the conditions in which you have your best mental energy. Find a way to share this exercise with your team and discuss how you can best support each other to maximize your mental energy.
