What is a human process lab?
In a human process laboratory, a group of around 8 to 12 participants work together along with one or more facilitator(s), to explore human processes and discover more about themselves, their strengths, their styles, their interpersonal and group interactions, how they perceive others and in turn perceived by them. While this is the primary task, there is no pre-determined agenda and the group uses the “here and now” experience to derive this learning, using every member as a resource. The facilitator helps to create a climate for learning. There are also some community sessions where members from all the laboratory groups work together.
Outcomes and Takeaways:
The Basic Lab on Human Processes provides a learning opportunity where the participants can:
- Become aware of their own patterns of behavior
- Know the impact of their behavior on others
- Know the impact of others’ behavior on themselves
- Improve their effectiveness in interpersonal interactions to derive greater mutual satisfaction
- Discover their potential to live more effectively and meaningfully
- Build competency in personal effectiveness and making it available for organizational and societal growth and development. Participants in ISABS labs are likely to become more sensitive to their and others’ feelings, needs and behaviours as well as understand their own and others’ behaviour more clearly.
