HOW WE WORK
At Human Factors Collaborative, we use a holistic approach to help leaders develop renewed energy, a sharpened focus, and more inclusive and engaged teams - all while having fun and recapturing their passion for their work.
Human Factors Collaborative’s 3 Factors
Leadership Coaching - because small shifts in awareness and behavior can have a big impact on lives and organizations.
Through coaching, we help our clients discover and hone their most natural and effective leadership style--this benefits the leader, their team, and their organization. Our model stands apart because it blends high quality, identity-aware, heart-centered coaching with rigorous assessment and feedback to help clients see their leadership and leadership context more clearly.
HFC’s coaching model for leaders and teams includes:
One-on-one coaching conversations
Quantitative personality assessment
Qualitative 360-degree feedback
Group coaching and/or learning community support
Targeted support in setting and achieving personal and leadership goals
Priority Identification & Goal Setting - because focused leaders & teams are more effective and energized
Clarifying focus, setting goals, and staying on track are key parts of the coaching process. These steps are equally important at the organizational level. We work with teams to identify priorities and set goals using an approach that mirrors our coaching style. Our process helps teams address interpersonal and organizational dynamics that traditional strategic planning often overlooks. We focus on authentic collaboration rather than top down planning in a vacuum. This helps teams build trust, have fun, and create a plan that everyone can get behind.
Organizational Development & Design - because systems designed with people in mind work better and are better places to work
In addition to our leadership development offerings, we also help clients bring out the most in their work force through organizational development and design. We help clients design management structures and job roles that maximize the potential for equitable success, a sense of inclusion, satisfaction, and retention. We also help them identify solutions to improve culture, manage change & increase employee engagement.
Human Factors Collaborative's Commitment to Equity
In our work, we are committed to personal, professional, and collective liberation.
For us, this liberation means identifying and shifting the ways of thinking, the habits and the practices that get in the way of interacting with one another equitably and inclusively in our full humanity.
As white coaches based in the United States, we approach this commitment both joyfully and with humility. We engage in the ongoing work required to liberate our own ways of thinking, doing and being. We also work in community with clients and other coaches who share our commitment.
In that spirit, Human Factors Collaborative has partnered with Chiron Strategic to create the Social Identity Coaching Lab. Through this approach, we work with other coaches committed to liberation to nurture equity leaders and support groups that have equity as a core aspect of their mission. Social Identity Coaching Lab picks up where most equity and inclusion initiatives leave off: offering clients an opportunity to move from awareness to liberated action and long-lasting individual and organizational change.
“Human Factors is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimise human well-being and overall system performance.”
~ The Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors
Our name and our approach stems from the belief that a successful system is one that is designed for human well-being.
