Both academic and industry research identify Psychological Safety as the number one determining factor of successful people and teams. However, until recently we lacked the ability to measure, track or implement strategies for something so intangible and subjective. Thanks to neuroscience research we are now gaining this visibility.

The S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ Model describes six domains of threat or reward that are important to the brain: Security, Autonomy, Fairness, Esteem, Trust and You. Understanding the needs, rewards, motivations, biases and stress triggers of each domain can provide valuable insights into yourself and others and help improve interactions, teamwork and productivity. The S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ assessment ranks and quantifies your brain’s S.A.F.E.T.Y.™ needs and explores the potential impacts of your profile on you and those around you.
