Creating Psychological Safety with Pasha Marlowe

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you couldn’t fully be yourself?

Maybe you hesitated to share an idea, express an opinion, never mind present an opposing view. Or maybe felt like you didn’t belong?

And as a leader, have you ever been made aware of an employee having this experience at work?

I have Pasha Marlowe joining me to discuss the profound importance of psychological safety and belonging.

Meet Pasha Marlowe:

Pasha Marlowe (she/they) has 30 years of experience as a marriage and family therapist and neurodiversity coach. She specializes in the intersection of neurodiversity, disability, and LGBTQIA+. Pasha speaks to organizations and ERGs about neurodiversity-affirming practices, psychological safety, and neurobelonging. She encourages leaders to have a lens of inclusion and intersectionality to allow all, including those with the most marginalized identities, to be seen and heard.

In this episode Pasha and I discussed:

  • How Pasha got into such a specialized field of work.
  • How as leaders we can create environments for psychological safety to exist.
  • Shaping our words and actions to contribute to psychological safety.
  • Continuing your own development to sharpen your lens of inclusion and intersectionality.
