Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, Inc. Releases New Book For Accelerating Trust, Inclusion, and Collaboration in the Workplace



In Safe Enough to Soar (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2018, ISBN 9781523098057) bestselling authors and inclusion experts Frederick A. Miller and Judith H. Katz introduce the concept of “interaction safety” and demonstrate how it can help create a work environment of trust, inclusion, and collaboration. Some organizations ensure the physical safety of team members but what about making sure they feel safe enough to express their opinions and ideas? These are the issues and concepts that Miller and Katz explain and explore throughout this book.

The concept of interaction safety is the main focus of the book. Miller and Katz want to encourage reasonable risk-taking and inspire every individual to be brave enough to reach for higher goals and more ambitious possibilities. Making it a perfect book for those who are looking for a way to expand and better their career as well as their own individual goals. When interaction safety exists, individuals feel encouraged and empowered and can achieve more together than they would alone because fear no longer holds them back.

Miller and Katz introduce a four-level model for assessing and increasing the interaction safety in organizations, illustrated by short scenarios taken from real-life situations. They offer concrete actions in which everyone can take to build and maintain a productive, collaborative, and innovative environment which will allow people to do their best work both individually and as a team.

Frederick A. Miller, CEO, and Judith H. Katz, executive vice president, of the Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, Inc., are the coauthors of The Inclusion Breakthrough, Be BIG, and Opening Doors to Teamwork and Collaboration. They have each been honored with several of their field’s most distinguished awards. They have both received the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Organization Development Network (ODN), and Miller has also received the Winds of Change Award from the Forum on Workplace Inclusion. Katz has also received ODN’s Outstanding Achievement in Global Work Award and Communicating OD Knowledge Award, as well as the Cultural Competency Award from Diversity Training University International. Miller has served on Ben & Jerry’s and Day & Zimmermann’s corporate boards. Katz is currently a member of the Fielding Graduate University board of trustees.
