Are you ready to turn those employee whispers into resounding roars? This iepisode is about to rock your company culture conversations as we ask Stephen “Shed” Shedletzky: “Is psychological safety really worth it?” We kick things off with the ultimate truth bomb: an open-door policy isn't the superhero cape it's cracked up to be. It's like thinking a pineapple is the secret to becoming a world-class surfer – it just doesn't add up! We'll unravel the myth and reveal why true psychological safety goes beyond propping a door open.

But wait, there's more! Shed reveals how technology can be your trusty sidekick, not the enemy of the people, in building a culture where speaking up is rewarded, not draped in fear, jeers, and smears. Tune in as we uncover how tech wizardry can bring teams closer, even if they're miles apart. 

And did someone say purpose? Yep, you heard it right! We're digging deep into the treasure chest of purpose, discovering why finding yours is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a very meaningful rainbow.

And hey, we're not just tossing around brilliant ideas; we've got actionable takeaways: 

  1. Your voice needs a safe landing pad – that's psychological safety for you. But it's not just about landing; it's about taking off too!
  2. Tech tools aren't just for your cat videos; they're the secret sauce for a culture where your voice isn't just heard, but celebrated.
  3. Can't bond at the watercooler? No problem! We're revealing the magic formula for creating bonding moments, even if your team is scattered around the globe.
