The secret sauce of our unique methodology is the concept of Varṇa, which decomposes organizational structures fractally down to job and roles to be married with core human instincts.
Corporate training is an industry with wide scope. Hence, not very surprisingly, the training available is fractured. Its scope tends to be narrow and focused on one or two specific areas, such as change management, strengths and weaknesses, process improvement, awards and incentives, negotiation skills, communication skills, team management, etc. Our methodology offers unique integrated approach that encompasses all of these areas. Our methodology helps people learn how all these various areas interrelated and influenced by each other.
Our methodology, by integrating several such diverse areas, gives the big picture of the modern environment. It helps them learn about various job functions and roles in the organization and how they relate to their own job function and role. It helps them how the efficiencies and innovation that they bring locally integrates with the mission, vision and strategies of the organization. As a byproduct, people also get a clear perspective of career paths available in the organization. The training helps them choose a career path that is right for them.
The ‘4’ in Human4ce refers to the four colors in our logo and also to our unique methodology, which is based on four way classification of human instincts. It is a simple and powerful classification to understand the deep nature of humans, organizations and society as a whole. This classification also serves as an instrument to measure efficiency in the work place like no other tool.
Most of the methodologies used by the training industry today are developed in 1930s or 1960s. The work environment then was very different from that of today. There were no computers, no remote work, no globally connected human force in those days as we see today. The concept of Varṇa, on which our methodology is based, is developed in 2010s, taking into consideration all the essential factors of the work places in the modern information age.Another distinguishing factor of the concept of Varna is that it has been created out of the founder’s experience in industry in the global information age where all the aspects of human force are in play.
All the workshops use the same framework and are based on one unifying model. This framework can be applied flexibly to diverse personnel (contributors or managers) and groups such as technical, HR, marketing etc. Regardless of job function everyone is trained in the same methodology and thereby develop the same vocabulary to understand the organization as well as their role in the organization. They benefit by the tools and the framework that is provided by the methodology.
Our workshops are based on a modular curriculum. Every workshop contains two modules, the foundation module and the specialization module. The foundation module, which introduces the concept of Varṇa is the same across all workshops. The specialization module varies from workshop to workshop. The specialization module of the 'Work Dynamix workshop', for example, focuses on the team dynamics, while 'Success @ Work' focuses on career paths and collaboration.
The concept of Varṇa, is very simple, natural, and easy to grasp. Once trained, people remember it forever without any effort. It rings in the back of their minds like a catchy tune of music, throughout their life. The application of this methodology also comes naturally. People of different personalities apply it in their own ways in their respective job functions.
Since our methodology focuses on core human nature through its unified model, the insights from the foundation module can be applied not only at work, but also at home, such as in understanding family members better, in improving marital relationships and in parenting, so much so, that some employers ask the participants to spare weekend days for the workshop, in addition to the weekdays spared by the employer.
