And if you’ve landed here- you know this too. But this doesn’t happen in a vacuum.  

It requires leaders & employees to communicate with each other, and develop trust in one another. 

This inevitably leads to companies retaining incredible talent, and a workplace culture that people feel psychologically safe to contribute, share and thrive in.

 

But how exactly does this happen? By prioritizing the development of emotional intelligence in business leadership. And that’s where Topsie comes in.

Topsie VandenBosch is an experienced Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, Mindset Coach & Psychotherapist. She combined her decade-long knowledge from the mental health field with her experience coaching business owners- to create a unique, evidence-based approach that champions psychological safety in the workplace.

what is psychological safety- & why is it important for the workplace?

Psychological safety is about cultivating a space where everyone feels safe to share ideas, express concerns, and speak up. It’s the practice of ensuring that people don’t fear punishment, retribution, or ridicule for expressing their concerns and ideas. Employees need to know that their contribution and their voices matter. This is what leads to increased innovation, employee retention & trust in company leadership. But what most companies don’t realize, is that in order to create an environment where psychological safety is the norm - emotional intelligence needs to be rooted in the foundation of company culture. Without emotional intelligence as the bedrock of communication - psychological safety simply can't exist.  

what is e.i. - emotional intelligence? why does your organization need it?

When leaders understand their own emotions and know how to recognize and respond effectively to the emotions of those on their team- this is how you can tell that emotional intelligence training is a priority.

 

If E.I. is woven into the fabric of your organization’s culture, it creates a ripple effect where openness, mutual respect, and trust become the norm instead of the exception.

 

This allows for psychological safety to not just exist passively- but to thrive actively.

 

Through the use of in-person and virtual learning programs- Topsie's approach ultimately improves team cohesion, increases leadership & team performance, and helps you retain talent.
