Shield of Protection

Most authors on organizational behavior, such as Amy Edmondson, Timothy Clark, and Kim Scott, seem only to offer psychological insights on how team members should behave towards each other rather than specifying how to actually protect members from misbehaving and toxic managers.

Imagine if every organization was obliged to provide a standard “shield of protection” for every organization member?

Where every team member understands that they are protected when they speak up, even if they do not do it perfectly. All members would have also agreed to abide by the protective culture and simple procedure required, ensuring clarity, accountability and consistency.

This would then empower any potential victim, something that has sadly been lacking in all of this discourse on psychological safety. I believe the Disputz Network would offer such protections.
