Our approach

Productivity is about People.

HumanityWorks, is a leadership development organization that focuses on increasing productivity by bringing more humanity to the workplace.

We believe in people. We believe that people want to do their best work. And, it can get messy. We teach people skills that help them to be more human and do better work.

Model of Our Programs >>

The HumanityWorks® model contains Five Practices linked to proven productivity outcomes that help drive business success:

Creating safety builds trust.
Working together manifests resilience.
Claiming values produces alignment.
Owning your impact drives accountability.
Daring not to know creates engagement.

These Five Practices put people first. They are the magic for success and drive unrealized business results.

HumanityWorks® Programs

Our HumanityWorks® programs are for you when how work gets done is as important as what work gets accomplished. Our programs are for organizations who realize a one-and-done approach to flavor-of-the-month training does not yield the type of long-term systemic change you need. Our programs are for you when you are serious about cultivating a culture where humanity works better.

Our coaching will help the individuals in your organization reach their potential. Our coaching focuses on having the client learn how to solve their own problems. We help folks move obstacles, real or perceived, out of the way. Through careful observation, listening, and summarizing, our coaches keep the client on course towards changes they choose to enact.

Differentiating beliefs that guide our coaching:
  • When the individual is responsible for their growth, needed changes will happen.
  • The individual is in charge of who they are becoming.
  • Most people are familiar with what holds them back and want to be better.

Individual Coaching

Coaching can happen with anyone from individual contributors to the C-suite. We focus on how their leadership is emerging, what is getting in their way and how to move beyond it to be the leader they want to be. We introduce clients to concepts which can be applied immediately to real-world challenges. Our clients learn to look within themselves with curiosity and openness to uncover how to be more effective. Contact Us >>

Tandem Coaching

Useful when the top of the house or key leaders are creating roadblocks and confusion within the organization and need to literally “get on the same page.” Tandem coaching requires at least two participants and two HW coaches. Together we co-actively create awareness, choose how to move forward and support the courage needed to make those changes. Contact Us >>
