Ep. 105: Creating Psychological Safety When Preparing for a Return to the Workplace with Cristina Herrera and Simone Fenton-Jarvis

Cristina Herrera, Prosci, and Simone Fenton-Jarvis, BSc, MBA, FIWFM are change management experts with a passion for creating people-centric workplaces and offering inspiration during these challenging times. This week’s podcast episode features highlights from the “Workplace Innovator Interactive Livestream” which was broadcast on April 8, 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mike Petrusky and Madison Dujka co-host a discussion about supporting our colleagues by creating workplaces where the psychology of safety is a priority and the needs of individuals are accounted for when planning a return to physical office spaces. “Fear is stronger than data” so workplace leaders must combine a data-driven strategy with an understanding of the human emotions that will influence decision-making and comfort levels as we consider re-opening the built environment.
