Leadership Talks: Psychological Safety

Join us as we live stream our fourth episode of Leadership Talks with our special guest, Tommy Darwin.  The focus of the discussion will be psychological safety.

Leadership and Psychological Safety:  A leader's first job is to nurture psychological safety — trust and relationships that help individuals feel connected to each other, willing to speak up, and most importantly willing to be curious, try new things, and learn quickly when things don't work. At all times, psychological safety is essential to innovation, performance, and resilience. In a crisis, psychological safety is essential to survival.

Tommy Darwin is currently the Director of the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Program in the Moody College of Communication, and in his 20 years at UT have held positions in the Graduate School and DDCE and worked directly with a number of programs across campus. He developed and delivered programs and graduate level courses in the broad areas of entrepreneurship, leadership, community, and organizational change. Tommy also works with individuals and groups to build their resilience, ability to engage opportunities, and adapt effectively to changing situations.
