Senior Executive Business Forum, Melbourne 

Psychosocial Climate - The Critical Role of Civility and Supportive Leadership Behaviour

Organisations are increasingly taking a focus on workplace mental health and psychological safety, with ‘psychosocial climate’ featuring more frequently in these conversations. However, when psychosocial climate is unpacked, it appears that many are still focused on individual psychology, rather than preventative workplace factors. 

As a concept, psychosocial climate is widely misunderstood. The real impact of focusing on psychosocial climate is in exploring and maximising workplace factors that can prevent and minimise psychological harm to workplace and workforces. 

Two workplace factors that are frequently overlooked are civility and supportive leadership behaviour. These are two key areas that, when managed and supported properly, can have a huge impact in preventing psychological injury and harm within workplaces. Moreover, these two workplace factors can contribute significantly to workplaces developing more high performing teams, and becoming more psychologically safe and healthy. 

Using real life examples of how these two factors have been managed well (and not so well) and the proactive strategies undertaken by different organisations, this forum will explore:
  • What is ‘psychosocial climate’ 
  • How to better understand your psychosocial climate and organisational needs 
  • Focus area: Civility 
  • The typical approach to workplace behaviour concerns vs. preventative strategies aimed at developing civility 
  • Focus area: Supportive Leadership Behaviour 
  • Best practice strategies for enhancing Supportive Leadership Behaviour 
  • How to measure psychosocial climate and initiative outcomes (beyond attendance rates!)
