How to create psychological safety in your home with Dr. Tim Clark - Episode #94


Dr. Dan welcomes psychological safety expert and the Founder/CEO of LeaderFactor Tim Clark to the show today to discuss his new book The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety and how these lessons can help parents.

In his new book, The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety: Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation , Dr. Clark explains that fear has a profoundly negative impact on engagement, learning efficacy, productivity, and innovation, and that until now there has been a lack of practical information on how to make us feel safe about speaking up and contributing at home or at work.

Today Dr. Dan and Dr. Clark discuss these high-level leadership concepts in an accessible and enlightening conversation touching upon important parenting topics such as: 

  • Psychological Safety 
  • Trust
  • Fear
  • Human Needs
  • Love
  • Acceptance

As a social scientist and an organizational consultant, Dr. Clark’s book provides a framework to move people through four successive stages of psychological safety: Member, Learning, Contributor, and Challenger which are detailed in the book and he touches upon these stages during today’s show with Dr. Dan.

At the end of Episode 94, Dr. Clark describes a revealing Parent Footprint Moment about his son and how he had to change his parenting style to meet the needs of his son.
