Protecting workplace team
members from browbeating naysayers
Managers, and HR of
tech companies using
creative design, and
innovative teams.
IDEAL CLIENT
PROFILE (B2B)
THE PROBLEM
Team members being
reluctant to speak up
with their radical solutions
due to the lack of protection
from unfair naysaying from
browbeaters.
“Erk!! That’ll never work!!”

minor browbeating. The real-world data and AI allowing companies
to more accurately predict a team’s future success or failure.
Intervention
Charter

Data Collection
for SpatzAI
Machine Learning
Democratic
Peer-Review
Network
OUR UNIQUE PSYCHOLOGY
OUR (SPECIAL SAUCE) UNDERSTANDING OF…
1. …how objecting differs from disagreeing in conversations.
2. …how objecting differs from complaining in conversations.
3. …why resolve spats (micro-conflicts) before they escalate.
(existing research evidence proving this in design teams)
4. …the upside of uncertainty and the role absolute dogmatic language
plays in paralysing teamwork and creativity.
5. …how to democratically include the least powerful voice in teams.
6. …how to fairly hold team members to account for any misbehavior.
FINDING & CONVERTING LEADS

promote Spatz to the B2B world of innovative tech teams.
• Includes product demonstrations, free trials, and
personalized outreach.
• Using online channels like LinkedIn, while also
leveraging offline networking and referrals.
