Today I am celebrating being quoted. It seems that across industries, people are finding relevance in what I am passionate about – creating safe spaces. I admit that it was strange to see my name pop up on a site called Vinyl Art – The Art of Customized Packaging but it felt pretty normal when I read “One of the most interesting ideas to surface in employee support is to create a safe space at work. Corporate coach Maxine Attong teaches the idea, saying, “In order to take risks, which is the foundation of innovation and subsequent rewards, a team member has to feel safe. ”
It’s great when people understand the safe space concept and share it with their staff and external clients. Gerbig Engineering Company ( Manufacturers of AIRECELL Cleanrooms) is a company that thrives on innovation. That company seems interested that safe spaces promote innovation “Maxine Attong, a seasoned corporate coach, with an impressive resume, offers a suggestion that may surprise you. She attributes the level of the employee’s innovative ideas to how safe he or she feels”.
