Great example of Trust Vs. Psychological safety from @tom_geraghty
Trust is about the future (holding the rope if they slip)
While psych. safety is about the present (the belayer will lower you down when you ask)
I’m often told it’s just semantics 🤷♂️
The difference between Trust and Psychological Safety?
A climber trusts their belayer to hold the rope if they slip.
Psychological safety, however, is the climber feeling ok to call down and say "I'm scared, and I need you to lower me down."
