Trust is vital to the success of a team and to the health of the culture. When teams trust one another, they can create a sense of psychological safety, which means the group is safe enough for people to take risks, speak up, make mistakes, resolve conflicts, and be themselves – knowing that they won’t be ridiculed, shamed, or kicked out for any of these things.

Mike Robbins is the author of four books: Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation; Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Already Taken: Transform Your Life with the Power of Authenticity; Nothing Changes until You Do: A Guide to Self-Compassion and Getting Out of Your Own Way; and Bring Your Whole Self to Work: How Vulnerability Unlocks Creativity, Connection, and Performance. As an expert in teamwork, leadership, and emotional intelligence, he delivers keynotes and seminars around the world that empower people, leaders, and teams to engage in their work, collaborate, and perform at their best. Through his speeches, seminars, consulting, and writing, he teaches important techniques that allow individuals and organizations to be more appreciative, authentic, and effective with others and themselves.
