Indian Society for Applied Behavioural Science (ISABS, http://www.isabs.org/) is a national, non-profit, voluntary, professional organisation, founded in 1972 by a group of behavioural scientists engaged in applying their knowledge and skills for the well-being of persons and organisations. ISABS events focus on human processes and aim at helping people to understand themselves better and discover more creative and satisfying ways of working and relating. ISABS utilises group- and experience-based learning as its main training method. Experiencing, reflecting, hypothesising, conceptualising, and experimenting--rather than lectures--are the chief ingredients in this process of learning. ISABS also trains professionals to facilitate such experiential learning in organisational and societal contexts.
Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar (XIMB, http://www.ximb.ac.in/) owes its origin to the initiatives of the Government of Orissa and the Society of Jesus. XIMB has focused on quality and rigorous education, academic infrastructure, technology, and innovation. All these efforts have paid rich dividends--XIMB is among the best management schools in India. XIMB is one of the most technology intensive campuses in India. The campus provides a fertile ground for grooming managerial talent. XIMB also provides training and consulting services to various business and social sectors. Our new MDP residence and training centre are a proof of our commitment to provide continuing education to working executives.
Human Process Laboratories
In a human process laboratory, a group of around 8 to 12 participants work together along with a facilitator to learn about human processes and discover more about themselves, their strengths, their styles, their interpersonal and group interactions, how they perceive and are perceived by others. 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 each other as a resource. The facilitator helps to create a climate for such learning. There are also some community sessions where members from all the laboratory groups are invited to participate. Facilitators: Facilitators for all the Human Process Laboratories will be Professional Members of ISABS. Co-facilitators may include Interns and other participants in the ISABS’s Professional Development Programme. Fee: Participation fee for residential participants covers accommodation, morning tea, breakfast, mid-morning tea/coffee, lunch, mid-afternoon tea/coffee, dinner, and participation in the laboratory, including programme materials. Participation fee for non-residential participants covers mid-morning tea/coffee, lunch, mid-afternoon tea/coffee, dinner, and participation in the laboratory, including programme materials. Any other expenses incurred by participants during the course of the event would be to their own account and must be settled before departure.

(c) Intimate Space: Effective Relationships at Home and Work (5 days)
Facilitator: Snigdha Pattnaik; Co-facilitator: Khirod Pattnaik This laboratory creates a space for couples to explore their relationship and plan where they would like to take it. Participants learn to support each other in moving towards their individual goals while balancing between the requirements of work and their personal lives. It would be open for participants to shift to a more intimate, trusting, sensitive, and exciting future. It is not necessary that a couple should have experienced some problem in their relationship to join the laboratory. Good marriages can also become better. For organisations, the payback is an employee with a happier home life and a whole new outlook on relationships. Such an employee would be less stressed, more effective at the workplace, and also easier to retain. Objectives: To enable the participants to: (i) look at the closest relationship in their lives as also their own expectations and desires from it; (ii) explore ways to make the relationship free flowing and mutually supportive; and (iii) learn to extend the dynamics of building and nurturing mutually supportive relationships to the work place. For Whom: This laboratory is meant for married couples. Participation Fee: Residential (AC Double Room): Rs 13,000 per couple Non-residential: Rs 8,000 per couple Snigdha is a full-time faculty-member of XIMB and a Professional Member of ISABS.
