16、comfortable with collaborating,learningand innovating as a team.To foster a psychologically safe environment,software engineering leaders should:Frame failure as an opportunity to learn.Failure can be essential for learning and growth.You should distinguish between blameworthy failures that is,failu

19、riosity.Ask lots of questions in both one-on-one and team discussions.When discussing performance or career-related topics with individual team members,askquestions such as:Did the failure result from trying something new,testing a hypothesis or exploring anew opportunity?Did it occur because you or
