In this episode of Perspectives in Leaders, Alex Draper, Founder and CEO of DX Learning, joins Adam to discuss the importance of creating a psychologically safe work environment that empowers people to give open and honest feedback. The discussion ranges from the challenges that lie within providing feedback up the chain, how to overcome imposter syndrome, and the essentiality of managing the fear of negative consequences.
While at surface level, these may all be “soft” skills, the hard impacts that result from a healthy and open organization include overall improved culture, a more sustainable developer experience, and a more productive workforce.
