The HUM-B-LE background

HUMan Based LEadership Development

Growing HUM-B-LE Leaders to create greatness by transforming companies and cultures into vibrant, engaging, high-performing organizations.

At Humessence, we challenge the norm for growing leaders. According to a 2021 CEO survey, growing leaders for the future is a top priority. Yet, these same CEOs have little confidence in their Leadership Development (LD) Programs. We recognize traditional LD approaches fall short of elevating leaders’ performance. Therefore, we created a novel and effective program that creates more engaged teams and psychologically safe cultures. Our program develops better leaders and produces high-performing teams.

So what seems to be the gap, and why is Humessence different?

According to Travis Bradberry’s research in his book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, emotional intelligence (E.I.) accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs. This makes it the most positively correlated attribute with career performance and the most vital driver of leadership and personal development.

At Humessence, becoming a game-changing leader starts with a strong basis in E.I.. This is why team and individual E.I. training is core to our 7-step HUMan-Based LEadership Development Program.

However, we go further than that.

We understand leaders are very busy people, and to make a lasting impact, we meet them where they are. We work out their specific gaps and partner in support of their and their team’s unique development needs.

The Bottom Line:

The HUM-B-LE approach has proven effective in multiple instances generating a 4.5% to 8.3% improvement in average survey scores and at least a 30% reduction in “negative” responses (somewhat disagree or disagree). This approach works in improving leadership’s positive effect on organizational culture.

The Development Process Framework

Our custom approach is tailored to meet the needs and priorities of each team and organization—full immersion with a trusted partner.

We start with understanding and assessing the leader, their team’s perceived opportunities, and the culture of their team. We accomplish this through individual interviews and surveys to measure the engagement and psychological safety within their culture. This becomes the baseline to measure growth and development in the final step, enabling shared accountability between the LD professional and the leadership team.

The middle five steps involve partnering with leaders to establish learning objectives, teaching individual and team emotional intelligence, delivering additional LD content specific to the team’s needs, implementing succession planning processes, and planning for sustainability. We remove unnecessary generic LD content to focus on meeting specific, targeted needs.
