Psychological Safety Meetup

Psychological Safety Meetup with Karen Kemerling and Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Agile and Scrum training and coaching. We collaborate with stellar people –like Karen Kemerling, a globally recognized Agile Leadership educator and coach. Our training takes place at our location in the Farmington Hills/Novi area, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or at your location anywhere around the world.  Our Agile workshops and Agile coaching sessions can also be offered virtually, reducing your need to travel.

While many trainers fly into metro Detroit to deliver Scrum and Agile classes at a hotel, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and meetups. We have successfully run Agile and Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Agile Leadership courses for multiple teams from globally recognized organizations. We also provide Agile coaching for great companies, helping them with their Agile journey.

We are planning a series of free virtual meetups for our Agile friends.

Meetup with Karen Kemerling – February 8, 2023

Psychological Safety and Virtual Lean Coffee

In this 90 minute meetup Karen will discuss advanced Psychological Safety topics with you.

  • What is psychological safety?
  • Why does it matter to companies?
  • What are the stages a team, group, company must go thru to build psychological safety?

This includes building psychological safety thru four stages: Inclusion, Learning, Contributing, and Challenging the status quo.

These are the stages to build a culture that encourages employees to bring their best self to work and the building blocks that empower innovative and thriving companies.
