Do Your Teams Feel Safe?

Make a Personal Connection

People need to feel safe and valued in order to make their best contribution in the workplace. As a leader, you set the tone and have a big impact on whether people feel connected.

Here are two ways to build an environment of safety for your Agile teams.

  • Connect on a personal level. Notice what people care about and show genuine interest. Remember the names of family members and pets, important milestones, hobbies, and favorite sports teams. 
  • Spend time with team members to work toward and support their goals. Show that you care about their growth and development, beyond immediate assignments and responsibilities.
