PPP 240 | (Video) How to Speak Up When It Feels Risky

Speaking Up When It's Risky

How do you speak truth to power? In episode 236 we talked with Harvard's Amy Edmondson, who made the evidence-based case for how important it is to foster psychologically safe environments for those we lead. But most of us don't work in such environments.

What do we do then? How do you speak truth to power when it's not a psychologically safe environment?

In this video episode, we're joined by Jim Detert from the Darden Business School at the University of Virginia. Jim shares four principles to improve your ability to affect positive change when speaking truth to power.
