Hi Class, 

I chose to speak about the first suggestion for developing my capacity to tap into Sisu at work: Building psychological safety. I chose this because as it stands, I currently can be my worst enemy, mentally. I tend to stress myself when I know I’ve made a mistake or even stressing about the possibility of making a mistake. This is all because I want to always do things the correct way, so when I make a mistake, it really throws me off. As defined in the excerpt, “Psycological safety can give you the space to speak your mind and stand up for what is important, to be innovative, and to take action despite the risk of failing or making mistakes.” I can achieve this by not being so hard on myself, if I do make a mistake but always ensure that I am trying my best at all times. I have to cultivate my own mental space of safety knowing that failure is just an event, not an identity. This is good because even at the face of adversity, developing a healthy mental space is vital. It’s really just me speaking positively to myself and knowing that it isn’t the end of the world when mistakes happen. 


I chose sisu, because it is something like the biggest mysteries i have experience. Susi have help me won mental and and physical battles when faced with challenges. I had became stressful at this job that i was working at one point. I quit the job even though i was doing it for the best of my ability, but it still became a stressful thing for me. I also has witness how i can change my ways with actions. It gives me a sense of a accomplishment and purpose.
