Human Dynamics Laboratory - Interpersonal Skills for Leadership Success
Individual and organizational success increasingly depends on our ability to work effectively with others. In today's ever more interdependent world the interpersonal and procedural challenges often equal or exceed technical issues involved.

Getting the right people involved, on the right tasks, at the right time in the right way is critical to success. Thus, mastering human or interpersonal dynamics can be as complex and important as mastering technical challenges. This circumstance presents an unparalleled opportunity for those who understand the impact of interpersonal dynamics and are able to deftly apply this knowledge to each organizational challenge. In other words, a proficiency in interpersonal relations is key to success.

Mastering Human Dynamics
Acquiring and developing proficiency with interpersonal dynamics requires much more than simply reading a book or attending a lecture. Even repeatedly practicing new behaviors is of minimal effect. The practice needs to be supported with timely, informed assessments presented in context. A recent Harvard Business Review article states that when the skills to be learned involve interpersonal relations – learning by doing, with feedback from a knowledgeable coach -creates deep understanding.
Obtaining this level of guidance in the midst of our existing relationships is extremely difficult. A better solution is to create a learning environment where the facilitator's expertise is applied, in the moment, to the array of unpredictable, context specific responses possible in real-life interactions.
