HumanityWorks® Online Program provides skills and tools to help people navigate the complex relationships that make us human beings. Complexities that often create roadblocks that make it difficult to get important work done. This program provides a foundation for how to BE with others in your organization in a delivery mechanism that is flexible, scalable, and affordable.
It is a companion piece to the book, Humanity Works Better, Five Practices to Lead with Awareness, Choice and the Courage to Change. Participants dive into four key mindsets, learn our super-pack of skills to be a good human, and apply each of our Five Practices to their own experiences. It is not necessary to have read the book to make meaning of the program content.
What is the Program Content:
Participants are exposed to:
Five super-pack skills that require no special equipment other than the heart and mind to put them to use.
These are the five universal skills to being a good human and doing good work.
Four mindsets that impact how you perceive an issue.

The Humanity Works Model of Five Practices to deepen the connection between you and those around you.

How do we get started?
If you want to know more about purchasing seats, please send a note to [email protected] and Deb or Kate will reach out.
Once you have purchased the number of seats that you want, you will receive a launch packet with specific instructions for the Program Coordinator. Included in the launch packet will be:
- A sample draft of communications to learners.
- A draft schedule to be customized with your cadence and completion dates.
- A Group Orchestrator guide.
- A link to our downloadable, fillable Journal that learners will use.
The HW Administrator will reach out to the Program Coordinator for names and emails of learners, review program cadence and determine timing for launch.
How does a cohort get formed?
Typically, the client and/or the Program Coordinator will determine the makeup of a cohort. Often there is some connection between learners such as they have similar roles, are new to the company, or are members of the same team. Over the duration of the Program, deep connection and understanding of one another forms. The outcome is better humans working better together.
How does the cadence and duration of the Program get determined?
We estimate the program can be completed in about 4 months; a more relaxed pace would be 6 months. You will set your cohort cadence as part of your set up and communicate it to your cohort. Completion of the program requires dedicated pacing and internal coordination. When setting the cadence, it’s important to think about work cycle commitments when considering the time being requested of your cohort.
What if the cohort needs more time to complete their course?
Timing for completion is up to the Program Coordinator. They will work with the HW Administrator on when the Program will close for any given cohort. Keep in mind the seats occupied by one cohort cannot pass to another one until the Program closes.
What if someone in a seat leaves? Can a new person be put in their place?
We do not recommend transitioning new people into an established cohort. Adding people into an established cohort can disrupt trust and the sense of safety that is forming. That being said, if the Program Coordinator determines it’s best to replace or add a learner to an existing cohort, they would contact the HW Administrator. The Program Coordinator is responsible for all internal communications to the cohort about its members.
What if the Program Coordinator leaves?
This is an internal role and will need to be replaced for the Program to operate effectively and successfully. Please notify the HW Administrator of any changes to this role.
What is required of a Group Orchestrator?
The main requirement of a Group Orchestrator is that they love to support the growth and evolution of others. The role can be filled in a number of ways. It can be a member of the HR/People/L&D team, a team lead, or any member of the cohort.
How much time is required of a Group Orchestrator?
The time commitment is about 6-hours per cohort. The responsibility is to lead group integration discussions and activities over the duration of the cohort.
How does a Group Orchestrator know what to do?
An extensive Group Orchestrator Guide has been prepared by HW. Instructions are provided for each group integration session, including group instructions and discussion questions. It is helpful for the Group Orchestrator to complete the Program once.
What if the Group Orchestrator leaves or there is no good option?
A new Group Orchestrator should be identified before the next group integration session. The Program Coordinator should communicate to the cohort about any changes to the Group Orchestrator. HW can provide a Group Orchestrator; additional fees apply.
How do seats change for new learners?
About 45-days before the planned completion of a cohort, the HW Administrator will contact the Program Coordinator to review progress of the current cohort and confirm transition of seats. The Program Coordinator will provide specific dates for the closure of one program and the launch of the next cohort, including learner emails.
What if we need more seats?
That is an easy problem to solve! The Program Coordinator just needs to contact the HW Administrator who can help work through the logistics.
What if we don’t need all of our seats – can I get a refund?
The contracted subscription period is for 12 consecutive months. We are not able to issue refunds for unused seats.
Who do we contact if we have technical issues?
Please notify the HW Administrator with any technical issues. That person can help triage the issue.
How do I renew?
We will reach out to the Program Coordinator about 60-days before your subscriptions expire to discuss next best steps.
Can our subscription be extended month-to-month?
No, subscriptions are for twelve consecutive months.
How can we monitor the efficacy of the Program?
HW has developed a pre-post pulse survey that we can administer to the cohort. Results are shared with the Program Coordinator. The HW Administrator can also provide progress status reports to the Program Coordinator within 3-business days of receiving the request.
