Meanwhile, there has been proved its positive effect on the psychological health of students, their emotional and personal well-being, the formation of a meta-subjective and personal educational outcomes. This paper describes a study the purpose of which was to examine and verify empiricaly the features of management activities in the educational organization to create a psychologically safe learning environment. We studied personality traits of the Head of an educational organization by the procedure "Troubleshooting leadership abilities" (E. Zharikova, E. Krushelnytsky), techniques "Diagnosis of the level of burnout" (V.V. Boyko), methods of self-management style assessment (A.V. Agrashenkova, modified by E.P. Ilyin), and methods for rapid assessment of health, activity, mood (SAN). We proposed mechanisms to solve the problem of creating a comfortable and safe learning environment in the educational organization of general education.
