'Being Human' is a series of blogs by Kirstin Furber, who, through over 20 years of developing organisational cultures for international businesses, has found how it is when we allow ourselves to be human at work, we start to be our best selves and deliver our best work. Kirstin’s first introduced this idea Can you be yourself at work? in her first blog and has since developed 5 characteristics of a human culture, blogged, spoken and implemented some of her ideas.
So today, particularly as we see the lines between work-life and personal life becoming more and more blurred, how do we develop a culture that allows us all to be human, to be ourselves at work and in turn leads to tangible results and drives business growth?
The blogs are designed to support business leaders; Entrepreneurs, CEO's and Senior HR professionals in ensuring they maintain a human culture through times of change, growth, when planning for the future or simply to help with a particular challenge, with the aim of being able to take away actionable insight after reading that can easily be implemented
