The Human Factor
Developing the First
Human soft skill framework
The World Needs Better Humans, With Higher Developed Human Soft Skills Than Ever Before.
The evolution of A.I., Robotics and Technology has changed the role of Humans in our society, but how we measure an individual's "value" hasn't caught up yet. This is robbing us of our ability to feel happy and fulfilled, and slowing down innovation & growth for businesses.
What is The Human Factor?
The role of humans in today’s society has vastly changed.
A.I, robotics, and technology are able to do so much of what we used to do manually, and they can take on projects that were not even possible just 20 years ago.
In today’s business arena, we have seen an incredible number of companies, CEO’s, and business strategy roadmaps. We have all attended moving TEDtalks, executed major pivots and unveiled NEW and IMPROVED 10 point plans to reach our BEHAG goals.
We are able to replace much of what humans once used to achieve with automation and tech. Businesses are growing faster than ever before, but just as easily, they are hitting walls, going bankrupt, or spinning their wheels expending valuable resources, all because the humans they employ are not doing what they need them to do, as fast as they need them to do it.
Why? Because Humans have also made major pivots, watched inspiring TEDtalks and TikToks, and started to reassess their own BEHAG goals.
Unlike a robot, A.I or new software, businesses can’t predict the output of an employee or modify their behaviour to obtain new results. They also can’t live without them, nor should they.
This is what we call THE HUMAN FACTOR.
It is the variable that can derail the best laid plans. It is the consideration that is often considered last. It is the scapegoat that failed plans can blame when things don’t go right. And it is the thing that cannot be avoided for a business to function.
But, THE HUMAN FACTOR can also be the reason that you came up with your innovative plan, that no one else has thought of, in the first place. It is the reason you have unrelenting loyalty from your customers and clients who will follow you no matter where your business leads. It is the reason you can grow 5x faster than your competition with a fraction of the resources at your disposal. And it can be the reason you actually enjoy going to work each day.
