Psychological Safety (PS) is the latest buzz word for corporations especially since the 2017 article in the Harvard Business Review on Google and high performing teams. There has been a lot written on the subject with many claiming to be experts and with years of research under their belt. Authors such as Brene Brown, author of Dare to Lead and Timothy R Clarke, author of The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety, have written extensively on the subject and their work sounds valid but there is just so much of what we need to know in order to achieve true psychological safety.
They seem to have focused on all the behaviors that team members should and shouldn’t do and what the team leaders should and shouldn’t do to enable these identified behaviors. Their information and data is exhaustive and exhausting.
However there is another way that may solve this overwhelming problem. Instead of focusing on how we all should behave to achieve PS, simply focus on how we object to misbehavior. Object123 does just that.
Object123 is a Psychological Safety framework that allows us to moderate each other’s misbehavior, in real-time and direct. Where the janitor can object to the CEO’s misbehavior and know that they have the protection that the framework provides.
