Building on the popularity of their internationally acclaimed Human Element program, Business Consultants Network unveils a one-day program for leaders who want to improve their social intelligence skills.
"This high-energy, interactive learning experience is designed to meet the needs of busy professionals who want to increase their self-awareness and personal influence, as well as improve their ability to develop, inspire, and work well with others," says BCN President Ethan Schutz. "Leading the Human Element offers an integrative and proven approach for developing relational skills. This highly interactive learning experience offers new insights and practical skills that are immediately useful to anyone who works with people."
As with all Human Element programs Leading the Human Element uses the best of behavioral science, adult learning, and neurological understandings to produce a transformational experience.
Numerous corporations have benefited from The Human Element, and sing its praises. "(The Human Element) is an amazing creation," says Mastercard founder and author Michael Phillips. "(They) started with a scientific approach that was far outside of mainstream of management ideas (and) introduced levels of honesty and integrity that had never before been seen in American management. I have consulted with many major corporations; most are involved in a long series of management fads, year after year. (The Human Element) has never been a fad. (They) have been outside the fickle mainstream and have built a loyal client base and a thriving business. Moreover, (they) have succeeded with skilled partners and highly intelligent and demanding clients. The proof of (their) success is the number of clients and the level of appreciation from businesses throughout the world."
Author and internationally known psychologist Daniel Goleman offers research findings that confirm large performance gaps between socially intelligent and socially unintelligent leaders. According to Goleman, a rapidly changing world demands a new type of leader: one that excels in the art of relationship. Goleman says it is "the singular expertise which the changing business climate renders indispensable." As companies eliminate layers of management and corporations merge across national and international boundaries, leadership excellence is increasingly defined in terms of interpersonal skills.
The idea that leaders need social skills is not new. Stories abound about the most adept technical person in an organization who failed miserably as a leader for lack of social intelligence. While some people are born with an innate skill in this area, many are not. The good news is that one doesn't have to be a born with these skills, they can be learned.
"The Human Element approach has developed a methodology to help people become socially smarter by offering training that is lacking in most schools and homes," says Schutz. "This training is focused on a genuine understanding of human behavior and what happens when people are in relation with one another."
Key learned skills from Leading the Human Element include: understanding human behavior, what motivates other people, what causes fear in others, how to develop greater personal influence, how to increase empathy, and caring and why all of this matters.
Organizations such as NASA, Boeing, the U.S. Army, Eli Lilly, Fujitsu, Procter & Gamble, Mattel, and Sun Microsystems report significant benefits from The Human Element approach. "A decision that might have taken three to five one-hour meetings to resolve before the seminar can now be resolved in one three to five-minute meeting. Our work group developed their plans in one third the time it used to take, and made a better plan," says a project manager from Fujitsu after participating in the workshop.
