Sally Naunton, who has been MD at Bray Health Care since 2019, joins me to discuss Being Bray and the Impact of Psychological Safety. Sally's leadership has taken her workforce on a journey to develop a new way of working, based on a framework the team created called Being Bray. 

In this conversation we explore psychological safety, including:

  • how it is part of employee experience 
  • the motivation for developing Being Bray
  • how values need to be more explicit in terms of behaviours
  • the process of developing and embedding the framework
  • some of the challenges around achieving and maintaining psychological safety
  • personal responsibility and accountability 
  • using the framework for growth and progression within the company: bronze, silver and gold standards
  • advice for companies thinking about a similar approach
