Humangood (HG) is an innovation program focused on innovation, co-creation, and service design. It is built on the design thinking platform but goes beyond the customer, the user, and the employee experience; and focuses on the human experience - our humanness. At our core, we are driven to connect in two ways - in the inside, our head and heart, and on the outside, our potential, relationships with others, and our purpose in the world.
The world has become more interconnected and disconnected at the same time. We have become more polarized in almost every aspect of the world we live in. The outside world now mirrors the inside of self-separation. As societies and organizations, we are failing at both meaningful innovation and engagement because of this separation. If we are going to solve these huge challenges in the world today, it is imperative we find new ways of working together. We have to re-learn how to connect with the head and the heart. We have to find our way back to “heart”.
The HG approach is built around workshops, internal programs, and toolsets. HG creates a safe and supportive place to take off our daily armor and allows us to consciously practice vulnerability, worthiness, shame resilience, and courage. It provides a space to re-learn, practice, and build new neurological pathways around HG’s core attributes of empathy, ambiguity, diversity & inclusion, equanimity, and altruism that lead us back to “heart”. The program builds on synchronistic moments and shared experiences that over time create a tipping point transforming the culture to one of innovation, engagement, connection, and trust. At our highest and best, I believe we were designed to live with boundaries…not armor.
