A Comprehensive Methodology for Workplace Productivity

In today’s competitive business landscape, companies are constantly searching for ways to improve performance and productivity. While many focus on technology or process optimization, an often-overlooked factor is the human element – the people within the organization and how they work together.

This is where The Human Element comes in. It is a holistic and comprehensive methodology developed by Dr. Will Schutz, aimed at improving the way people work together, leading to better individual, team, and organizational performance and goal achievement.

At its core, The Human Element deals with the root causes of human behaviors and helps individuals, teams, and organizations eliminate the behaviors that sabotage, undermine relationships, and lower motivation. By doing so, it helps organizations maximize the potential of their people and create high-performing cultures.

What is the Human Element methodology?

Creating a culture of trust, openness, and collaboration within organizations. Every individual has unique strengths and perspectives that may be utilized to drive organizational success. By cultivating an environment of psychological safety, where people feel comfortable being themselves and expressing their ideas, organizations will be able to maximize the potential of their employees. Ultimately, this will unleash the next level of creativity and innovation.

The Human Element's main objectives

  • Promotes an Open, Trusting, Accountable, and Engaging Culture.
  • Identifying and Resolving Intra/Interpersonal Issues within Organizations.
  • Reducing Rigidity and Defensiveness.
  • Assists Organizations in Achieving their Organizational Goals and Achieving Higher Results More Efficiently.

So, what are the principles of The Human Element?

Let's take a closer look:

TRUTH This principle emphasizes the importance of honesty, openness, and authenticity in building relationships. Creating a foundation of trust requires individuals to be honest and transparent about their feelings, thoughts, and motivations, the thing that will achieve deeper connections and more effective collaboration. Utilizing this principle, individuals are no longer wasting their time and energy on what they imagine is happening and can instead focus on the issues in front of them, making everyone more productive and efficient.
CHOICE Every one of us is completely responsible for the situation in which we find ourselves. We determine the outcomes of our behavior by choosing what we do and do not do, being aware of what is happening, and what is working against it. This type of choice (one's attitude and mindset) is what is responsible for the results. Instead of focusing on what is at fault for their current situation, individuals can concentrate on what can be done to resolve the issue. In this way, they will have the opportunity to begin building the life they desire.
AWARENESS It has been demonstrated that the higher our level of self-awareness and self-esteem, the more rational and less defensive our behavior becomes. It is imperative that we become aware of our own feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in order to build healthy relationships. The more we comprehend and recognize our own reactions, the better we will be able to understand and connect with others.

The Human Element is a highly effective methodology for creating high-performing organizational cultures. By dealing with root causes rather than superficial behaviors, it helps people remove the barriers to being authentic and staying flexible while enabling the organization to adapt and thrive in a fast-changing external environment.

Whether you are a CEO, manager, or team leader, The Human Element can help you create a workplace culture that fosters productivity, collaboration, and innovation. So, what are you waiting for? Start exploring the power of The Human Element today!
