Today, we discuss how CEOs and other leaders are increasingly longing for ways to overcome the challenges of individuals and teams isolating themselves with a singular focus on their own role, without giving due consideration to the other teams who are also vital to the enterprise. Additionally, top-level leaders are gaining greater awareness that it’s their responsibility to provide the psychological safety necessary to foster a high-performance culture.
Earlier this month Leo wrote a piece for CEOWorld Magazine entitled, “CEOs Tell Us What Happens in the Learning Zone.” It’s been about 20 years since Novartis Professor of Leadership at Harvard Business School, Amy Edmondson, first identified the concept of psychological safety and its importance to work teams.
On Medium, Leo published an article about the greater effectiveness of the School of Rock versus the classroom where Charlie Brown (of Peanuts) was a student.
