Swearing, Nudity and Other Vulnerable Positions


John recorded over 75 hours of interviews in 3 months speaking to some of the most respected people in the industry to produce an audio documentary that attempts to answer the questions: “What is safety? And why is it important anyway?”

This highly interactive talk will present the findings, guiding and challenging you through a journey to understanding psychological safety. With discussion and improvisation to cover the following topics:

  • What is safety?
  • What are the elements that make a team effective?
  • Is psychological safety the foundation to team performance?
  • What can we all do to help foster psychological safety in our teams?
  • What is the relationship between safety, stress and engagement?
  • What is the profound impact of a lack of safety and engagement on society?

This talk has grown as John created the new podcast The Agile Path. The first season on this podcast is about safety in teams. This has been a fascinating deep dive learning experience for John and he hopes to explore these insights with the audience.
