By changing the environment and using collaborative capturing techniques we increase productivity by an order of magnitude. Discover how easy it is to apply these lightweight tools to run impromptu meetings that often need only a room and a whiteboard.

Psychological Safety

Psychological Safety, a key condition for productive teams, is an environment where each individual believes that no one will be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. Team members feel accepted and respected, and trust that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking. This is a condition achieved when human beings feel that: 1) they are included, 2) it is safe to learn (which implies failure from time to time), 3) it is safe to contribute; and 4) it is safe to challenge the status quo. Due to the lack of fear of being embarrassed, marginalized, or punished in some way, individual contributors are able to allow their expressivity to flow and therefore contribute in more meaningful ways.
