Welcome to this episode, where we delve into the fascinating world of psychological safety in teams. Our guest today is Bård Fyhn, a PhD scholar at NHH Norwegian School of Economics and a former leader in the Norwegian Armed Forces.
Bård's research focuses on psychological safety, which he defines as the shared belief within a team that it is safe to take interpersonal risks. He believes that this concept is essential for effective teamwork, and he is passionate about making research accessible and practical.
In this episode, we explore Bård's background in the military and how he became interested in psychological safety. We also discuss the perception of vulnerability and fallibility in the military and how it relates to psychological safety.
Bård shares his insights on why psychological safety can be perceived very differently within the same team and the factors that contribute to these individual differences. We also touch upon leadership paradoxes and self-leadership, which Bård is passionate about.
Finally, Bård gets personal and talks about his own experiences with safety at work and how his family teaches him about psychological safety. So, sit back, relax, and join us as we explore the fascinating world of psychological safety with Bård Fyhn.
