Principles of Humanistic Leadership

Humanism is a philosophy that centers on respect for your fellow humans. It is a recognition that our behavior impacts others. We don’t live in a vacuum.

Principles of Humanistic Leadership

When we are in a leadership position, we have even more responsibility to do good, not just for ourselves, but for our team as well. Humanistic management or leadership is a philosophic approach that is at once: compassionate, ethical, reasonable and strategic. To be an effective ethical leader requires a variety of different interrelated skills.

The program will provide a grounding in the humanist philosophy and apply it to various aspects of leadership, from how to think strategically, to how to more effectively manage and lead people.

“I think this is an excellent course and would be beneficial to all managers and administrators” – J, Shaw

“I have taken several of Jennifer’s courses and enjoyed every one of them because they provide effective information and insights that cannot be found anywhere else. This course was no exception! While this course provides great ideas about being a manager, which I now am, it brought resolution to the abuse I suffered at my previous job. While working through the course, it became obvious that even though I was working for a Fortune 100 company, management did not have a clue about what they were doing. They ended up bullying and abusing their employees and many lawsuits resulted. I would also recommend this course to conscientious employees or anyone who would like to know what the duties and responsibilities of a manager are. Unexpectedly, this helped me heal from a bad situation. The section on professionalism was the cherry on top of the course. Everyone talks about professionalism, but no one clearly defines it except Jennifer. Being professional makes life so much easier for everyone in every way.” – R. Gawal
