Learning From Failure, Coping With Self Doubt and Psychological Safety at Work

Feb 7, 2024 | 35m

Amy Edmondson is very modest, so allow us to blow her trumpet for her - she is a ROCKSTAR in academic circles.

She is Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School, Thinkers50 #1 Ranked Thinker in the World and an award winning author.

Psychological safety - the term she coined in the 90’s is what truly put her name on the map. This term has become widely used in discussions about company culture and good leadership. (It’s also one of the most used leadership buzz terms on Tigerhall!)

In her Tiger Therapy episode, Amy talks about her new book ‘Right Kind of Wrong: The Science of Failing Well', where she outlines her research into failure. Spoiler: the popular Silicon Valley culture of failure isn’t quite right.

She also opens up about how her own failures caused her profound self doubt and explains what people often get wrong about psychological safety.
