The Elements of Humanology

Humanology is the discipline that works with and for human beings. By explaining human beings in a comprehensive but flexible way, humanology can help us understand ourselves, others and the world around us. As a discipline, humanology stands on academic and scientific knowledge taken from many different fields and balanced by the life experience of the professional humanologist. Thus, humanology approaches the human being as a completely unique and complex entity and adapts its tools, strategies, methods and approaches accordingly. The work of a good humanologist will vary from client to client, depending on the client’s needs and personal sphere.

There are certain clusters of tools or methods used in humanology that target different types of situations and problems. Let me mention but a few of them:

  • Optimism Coaching®: methodology designed and developed by humanologist Jessica J. Lockhart to help human beings recover their lost energy, drive and motivation. Life can sometimes make us feel like we can’t move, like there’s no energy left in us to undertake any changes or endeavors. This methodology offers not only the reasons behind this type of situation but also step-by-step immediate and longer-term tools to recover our drive and improve our moods.
  • Personal Essence®: human beings are already unique upon birth, such as identical twins parents will tell you. Nothing can truly explain that but personal essence, the innermost nature of each human being. Humanologist Jessica J. Lockhart designed a method to help her clients discover what their deepest nature is, how to use it, and how it affects everything in their lives: from the way they see it to their emotional reactions to people and events.
  • Coaching: a toolbox to help human beings introspect and find new approaches to solve situations.
  • Mentoring: guiding the client by offering them a step-by-step map of how we got where they want to get.
  • Neurolinguistic Programming: understanding and reprogramming certain messages in the human brain.
  • Teaching: the traditional transmission of knowledge from one human being to another.
  • Others: anything that helps human beings understand themselves and move forward. Some examples can be: Positive Psychology, Philosophy, Neurosciences, Mindfulness and many others.

Humanology then helps clients approach their situation or problem from any of those perspectives or any combination of several. Depending on what the issue is, the humanologist will offer the client specific tools that target possible advances or solutions. If the humanologist only offered one type of tool, mentoring, for instance, those clients who needed something else would remain stuck. That is the reason behind the comprehensive and integral nature of humanology.
