Safety Steps™ Service to Support a Human, Learning and Productive Team

Sitomo’s Safety Steps™ service has been created to support the strengthening of psychological safety in teams.

When people reflect on themselves and how they interact with others, a psychologically safe environment is created in which courageous behaviour is possible.

This is when genuine challenge comes to the fore and the “rough ride” is less of a burden when you can trust the people around you. People are more confident to give and receive feedback. Difficult conversations are also more courageous.

By regularly measuring their psychological safety and discussing their performance and any fluctuations in it, people acquire the ability to develop psychological safety and courage independently.

Why Sitomo Safety Steps™?

By measuring psychological safety, analysing the current situation and making it visible:

  • Making visible the areas of development of internal cooperation – working together to develop.
  • We support the competitiveness of the company by strengthening the culture of experimentation and the capacity of individuals to take social risks – to innovate together and dare to be bold.
  • We help identify risks of deteriorating collaboration – disruptive behaviour comes to the fore.
  • We improve well-being by reducing psychosocial stress – making it easier to raise difficult issues.
  • We increase productivity – working together becomes more effective when we dare to give and receive feedback and talk about difficult issues.

For certified users, the Safety Steps™ tool costs 20-40 € per person per measurement.
