Question: At Google, what differentiates their highest performing teams from everyone else?

Answer: Google conducted an in depth data and statistical analysis to find out what special secret supercharged their most innovative teams, and the number one answer was… psychological safety. This lecture explores how we can leverage this truth in our game designs with the goal of creating transformative experiences. John Stavropoulos will provide concrete step by step best practices and use examples from his work in games (Dungeons & Dragons, Critical Role, Gen Con) to illustrate how you can do the same.
