She states that psychological safety isn’t about being nice; it’s about giving candid feedback, openly admitting mistakes, and learning from each other.

The interview with Catherine Thomson of the Houston Exchange provides a unique perspective on how Structural Dynamic, a theory of face to face communication, can raise the quality of the conversations you have with coaching clients and trainees to significantly improve the learning experience.achieving, behaviour, catherine, challenge, clients, coachee, communication, conversations, create, delighted, dialogue, dynamic, effectively, exchange, expected, face, goals, groups, honesty, houston, impact, increased, individuals, intervene, issues, learners, learning, moving, negatively, patterns, podcast, politeness, provides, quality, raise, real, relationship, resolution, respect, saying, spot, structural, stuck, talk, towards, trainees, trainer, unique, view, work
