Learning The Human Element methodology will enable you to address and resolve human issues in the workplace. It provides efficient and transformative change for organizations by using an integrated methodology and a single, overarching model of interpersonal relations — FIRO theory. This theory facilitates understanding of all human dynamics—individual, team, and organization.
This approach is based on the notion that organizational change begins with the individual. By addressing root causes rather than surface behaviors, The Human Element helps people eliminate the distortions that sabotage them, undermine their relationships, and lower their motivation. The result is profound and lasting change.
The process of becoming a Licensed Human Element Practitioner (LHEP™) begins with experiencing The Human Element® methodology. This is a course designed to understand the logic of human behavior and interactions and includes a set of practical tools for navigating the human side of organizational life. This course focuses on increasing awareness of your own behavior and motivations because, oddly enough, in learning how to deal with others effectively, it is most useful to begin with yourself.

The LHEP™ Program uses a blend of experiential learning, scientifically-validated instruments, and practice teaching others to provide you with an understanding and the experience necessary to be successful as a professional.
No process so eloquently addresses the human perspective to leading change as The Human Element. Putting the fundamentals of The Human Element model to use allowed me to drastically redirect my personal and professional life and yielded greater results with much less effort and strife.- Conrad L. Smith
Working with experienced practitioners is the final step in becoming a successful LHEP. This not only gives you the opportunity to observe additional facilitation styles, but also creates a forum to practice and receive feedback.
The LHEP™ program offers a range of benefits for both internal and external practitioners, and for leaders:
Activities for the course are scheduled to maximize participant learning through active engagement, hands-on facilitation practice, and feedback.
Each day, one Human Element module is used for the day’s practice and instruction. The course facilitator provides information about the module, its history, purpose, and design. Small groups spend time to plan presentations for the module, which are delivered in the afternoon to the other members of the group. Following delivery, workshop participants and the facilitator provide feedback. Each day ends with advanced sessions or further personal work.
