Ep2: Demystifying Organizational Behavior in Healthcare | Professor Amy Edmondson

"Psychological safety is at the very heart of this discussion... a belief that it is safe for interpersonal risk...in my research I have found this not to be the norm, but it is a very powerful thing when it's there."

— Professor Amy Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School.
