Team Psychological Safety (TPS) is the shared understanding by team members that their team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking (Amy Edmondson, Harvard).


Gathering TPS Data

There are 7 elements in TPS which are measured anonymously through a simple 7 statement survey. In addition, three customized questions allow team members to express their views on the team’s performance and potential for improvement.

Analysing TPS Report

The TPS report analyses the level of pyschological safety in the team as a whole** and at the level of the 7 elements that constitute TPS: reaction to mistakes, asking for help, appreciation, accepting diversity, dealing with issues, taking risksand mutual support. The results for each team are compared to the database of teams where the TPS survey has been applied. The report identifies the team’s strengths and priority improvement areas. Verbatim comments give a qualitative and complementary aspect of the team members’ views.



Improving TPS

The report describes each of the 7 TPS elements and suggests a number of approaches to work on each element. The report can be used as the foundation of a team support program by a coach or leader as the first step to develop new or adjusted management routines to achieve sustainable team results.
