It's Time to Take On What You've Tolerated.

Leaders must accept the hardest truths in order to create the biggest change. Humanus solutions exists to awaken leaders and help them unleash the full potential of their people.

What Are You Tolerating

Disengaged and Discouraged Employees / Lack of Teamwork and Communication Breakdowns / Fractured Systems and Costly Mistakes / Injuries, Incidents and Near-misses
You know you can do better. But changing the status quo is daunting. It's often easier to react to the problems, fight the fires, and struggle through each day. But when we do, we slowly, inevitably, put our organizations, our people and ourselves at risk.

What Has Become Intolerable for You?

What would you change if you could? How have “that’s just the way it is” and “what do you expect?” encroached on your organization? Where have small compromises and daily complacencies undermined you and your team?

When you are ready to answer these questions, Humanus Solutions is ready to stand beside you.

Who We Are

Humanus Solutions are collaborative consultants who partner with leaders to champion people-centered organizations. We help leaders engage people, by building understanding of how work is perceived, and how leaders can influence those perceptions.  

We work beside you and leaders at each level of your organization to shift the way people think, feel, talk and act. We work with and through you, your leaders and your organization to create breakthroughs in safety, effectiveness, alignment and performance.

A Practical, Proven Methodology for Transforming Culture and Creating Performance Breakthroughs

High performing organizations attend to four things – together, these create momentum – a fly-wheel of energy and commitment necessary to take on the things we’ve tolerated, to have the difficult conversations and change the patterns we’ve fallen into. We teach our clients mastery of these four areas:

Mission
Create a clear and compelling objective – often seemingly impossible from the current perspective – that is meaningful to each team-member.
Mindset
Reset and reestablish a shared sense of responsibility and commitment to executing and achieving the greater mission.
Habits
Guide team members to implement new daily actions, speaking, conversations and attention that further the mission and spread the mindset.
Structures
Ensure recurring meetings, reviews and processes align with the mission, reinforce the mindset, and promote the habits.

Testimonials

"Unlike other consultants I've worked with, Greg has held senior leadership positions himself, and his advice is grounded in first-hand experience. He combines credibility with a high degree of integrity and commitment to the success of his clients, making him an effective partner."

Bill Sheppard, Intel

"Andy was instrumental in building strong relationships and fostering open communication within our team and our contractors. He is a dynamic speaker and excellent workshop leader. His support as a coach and thought-partner was invaluable."

Tim Weber, Devon Energy

“Your work has opened the door to build stronger relationships in our organization that has helped us address issues in quality, in the sequencing of our work, and in the communication of information. The engagement has been more of a Leadership Development Program for us, than a Safety Program."

Director of Quality

"Greg brings a unique combination of understanding large organizations and projects, on a technical level, and the more subjective and equally important leadership and organizational elements (the human side.) Greg has excelled in helping companies in their journey to develop a culture of care and concern, and a recognition that all accidents are avoidable."

James Ellington, M+W Group

"You gave us the inspiration and the tools. You are changing the world. What you are doing is making a huge difference. Our people are happier working here as a result. This would not have been possible without your help. "

Manufacturing Executive

“The workshop I attended touched me deeply, like very, very few events have in the past. As a result, I am re-invested in my company. This has the potential to change the organization and the way we do business."

Aerospace Executive

"When I first heard about working with a consultant, I was concerned. I have come to see your consultants as passionate, talented and patient. I see light bulbs going off everywhere and seeing folks acting and behaving differently."

Surveys stink: leadership ‘listening tours’ are a better solution
Surveys rarely lead to effective action: teams get mired in analyzing the results, debating the meaning of various numbers, and arguing over what people really meant by their responses. There’s a better way: 'listening tours’ allow leaders to have real conversations with employees to understand how people think and feel.
