Humanness in organizations and Society

In a world where end-results, productivity and profitability have become paramount the thrill & adrenalin rush of “killing it!” has assumed the centre stage. Our Society, Institutions & Organizations drive scarcity, competition and crisis management where people are becoming just instruments for the achievement of goals. The need for instant gratification and short-term focus has resulted in a cacophony that has quietened the voices of Humanness – fears, anxieties, hopes, needs and softer emotions.

At the same time, fortunately, there are few people (individuals/leaders), institutions and organizations, who nurture the innate human values and focus on sustainable development for all. Such institutions and thought leaders who have been able serve their purpose with sensitivity to human needs, respecting human emotions of hope & thriving as well as embracing fears & anxieties. There are emergent systems with a culture of abundance, collaboration and self-paced growth.

Applied Behavioural Science Summit 2019, is an opportunity to unravel the counter-trends.

The canvas of this summit is painted with the stories, experiments and successes from practitioners of human thriving. We are expecting over 30 other presenters besides the Plenary Speakers i.e. Academicians, Organizational Leaders, ABS Practitioners, Change Makers, Independent Consultants and Coaches to join us at the Summit. We are excited about the variety of formats of exploration and discovery that the Summit offers, ranging from:
