The ability to conceive, develop, and bring new products and services to market is essential in today’s fast-moving world as nothing builds and kills companies faster than new ideas and products.
Organizations, particularly successful firms, require approaches that encourage transformational thinking to produce tomorrow’s offerings.
Leadership plays a key role within the innovation process allowing individuals to explore, dream and interact without fear. A successful leader knows how to recruit the “right” team members, clearly communicate the goal, provide the necessary environment and resources, and define (and enforce) the “rules of engagement.”
Academy of Brain-Based Leadership
Notable organizations, such as Google, that are driven by innovation have adopted a psychological S.A.F.E.T.Y. model — allowing everyone on the team to speak freely without any fear of ridicule, reprisal or negative commentary. The model treats every team member as an equal — regardless of seniority or position — and is driven by empathy, sensitivity, and a willingness to speak and listen without judgment or fear. The term S.A.F.E.T.Y. was created by Phil Dixon, CEO at Academy for Brain-Based Leadership.
Essential to the psychological S.A.F.E.T.Y. model is a fundamental understanding yourself — particularly for leaders and senior managers.
Neuroscience provides the tools to understand how our mind works and why we feel and react as we do.
Individual S.A.F.E.T.Y. Assessment
To effectively participate and innovate, everyone needs to understand their own biases and triggers — and this is where the online Individual S.A.F.E.T.Y. Assessment is vital.
In 20 minutes through 50 online questions, you can quickly discover how you’re likely to react to specific individuals and situations — enabling you to learn about yourself. You’ll learn about your personal triggers, what matters to you, and how to avoid making unintentional statements that may be hurtful to others.
And, of course, enhanced innovation brings a stronger market position and all of the benefits that accompany it.
