The elements of the Human Interaction Laboratory include:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Diversity and Equity
  • Inclusion and Belonging
  • Authenticity in Relationships
  • Deep Listening
  • Group Dynamics
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback Effectively
  • Mindfulness
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Neuroscience-based Understanding of Behavior
  • Participant Focused Agenda
  • Leadership Effectiveness
  • Experiential Methodology of T-Group Work

NTL Institute’s signature program develops the key areas of personal and leadership effectiveness: self-awareness, interpersonal skills and knowledge of group dynamics. Today’s Human Interaction program is based on the principles of emotional intelligence - the ability to identify emotions (in both yourself and others), to realize the powerful effects of those emotions, and to apply that information to guide behavior.

In real-time situations, you will learn how your own behavior impacts others. You will learn to give and receive feedback in a way that creates connections with others and not defensiveness in them or yourself. Through this process you will learn to make the changes you need to make to achieve the results you desire.

Past participants report that after the HI Lab they are able to communicate more effectively with co-workers, colleagues, clients, and family members and that this learning “sticks” over time. The Human Interaction Laboratory of today is as impactful– even life-changing – as it was over 60 years ago.
