A Leadership Team Development Program For Conscious Organizations

HUMan Based LEadership (HUM-B-LE) development goes beyond traditional skills to develop leaders who create a culture that leverages the collective genius of your team.

HUMan-Based LEadership Development

HUM-B-LE Leaders transform companies into vibrant, engaging, high-performing organizations.

According to a 2021 CEO survey, developing leaders for the future is a top priority. Yet, these CEOs lack confidence in their Leadership Development (LD) Programs. We recognize traditional LD approaches fall short, so we created a program focused on leadership’s ability to elevate team engagement and psychological safety—the core elements of high-performing teams.

Leaders are busy, and we meet them where they are to make an impact while maintaining business continuity. We partner with them to identify specific challenges and prioritize training to support their and their team’s unique needs.

Where is the Gap?

According to Travis Bradberry’s research in Emotional Intelligence 2.0, emotional intelligence (EI) accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs. This makes it the most critical attribute for overall career performance and effective leadership. Becoming a HUM-B-LE leader starts with a strong basis in EI. So, team and individual EI training is core to our 7-step HUMan-Based LEadership Development Program.

The Bottom Line:

The HUM-B-LE approach is proven and effective because it is focused on two core cultural elements: engagement and psychological safety. In multiple instances, generating a 5% to 8% increase in overall team engagement and an average 30% reduction in disengaged employees. The HUM-B-LE program improves leadership’s positive effect on organizational culture, increasing retention and team performance.

HUM-B-LE Development Program Process

Our  proven 7-step approach is tailored to meet the needs and priorities of each team and organization.

We first understand and assess the leader and their team’s cultural environment through individual interviews and surveys measuring engagement and psychological safety—the baseline for measurable results.

The middle five steps establish learning objectives, teach individual and team emotional intelligence, deliver additional training content specific to the team’s needs, review or implement succession planning processes, and plan for cultural sustainability. We only provide the necessary training content to meet your organization’s needs efficiently and effectively.

HUM-B-LE Program Content Overview

Educating leaders on the power of our thoughts and self-knowledge. Knowing ourselves helps us empathize with others, and becoming more aware of the triggers that bring us out of leadership presence helps us make key decisions from a balanced state.

There are specific attributes of a psychologically safe environment and skills that leaders need to create and sustain them. Learn communication strategies that put empathy in action and embody them to set the example for your team.

Leaders will discover their strengths and learn how to leverage them to develop their employees from a strengths-based approach. Increase employee empowerment and learn to collaboratively compensate for blind spots through an integrated team.

Principles that make up your leadership values, purpose, and integrity. Leaders create a personal vision for their career that translates to the vision for their teams and aligns with organization priorities.

There’s an art and science to receiving feedback well. We start here along with the self-to-other approach taken with Emotional Intelligence. When we’re able to grasp what stops us from listening when receiving feedback, we’re able empathize when delivering it.

Enabling leaders to utilize Self Determination Theory in action. Experiential education for fostering your employees skill level, knowledge base, sense of belonging, and empowerment with the autonomy to operate in a psychologically safe environment.

A science-based approach to the ancient art of creating distance between stimulus and response. The greater the space, the more time we have to utilize the executive functions of our brains and proactively lead from a balanced foundation over reacting from past conditioning.

A co-created sustainment plan to integrate HUM-B-LE training and principles, and a thorough review of your organization’s assessment and promotion process. Develop diverse leaders internally, aligned with your values, and embodying the HUM-B-LE principles.
