I have been privileged to have a career as a human resource consultant for a wide range of industries and organisations, nationally and internationally. In doing so I have discovered that there is consistently something missing. There is a fundamental error in the way many organisations do business.
Being More Human is a bespoke system for change that ignites and transforms people, purpose and profit.
Businesses that are overly focused on things that can be measured; KPIs, outcomes, the task at hand have forgotten their most important resource…the people.
The time has come for us to stop looking at numbers and figures to create results. We need to start genuinely focusing on the human beings in our workplaces. People who have unique needs, wants and desires. When we start taking care of them…the rest will take care of itself.
This philosophy inspired the birth of Being More Human.
Our team of like-minded, visionary thinkers empower individuals and organisations to be more human in everything they do. We’ve combined a range of human resource products tools and methodologies with our team’s unique skill-sets and passion to produce an effective way to bring positive change to businesses, their leaders, staff and managers. The ripple effect on customers, clients, consumers, stakeholders and key partners is obvious and part of our impact analysis,
We are helping our clients to reap the significant benefits of understanding their ‘who’, and therefore their ‘how’. Benefits like higher staff engagement, lower staff turnover, fewer grievances and incidents, less psychological claims, a more constructive culture and, as a result, greater efficiencies and productivity.
While the journey begins with creating conversations with people to trigger the change needed, we are also on our path to our bigger picture – envisaging our impact through the global ripple effect of massive social and business change.
We’re helping people to be more human.
“I have been working with Michelle and her team for a few months now on an incredibly unique project that is deeply important to us at Anditi. We wanted to create a positive working culture with a flat structure, and empower our employees to take the lead at relevant times when they have the subject matter expertise in a project. Michelle and Krystal facilitated sessions, which the whole team was involved in and was incredibly beneficial for our small company. We talked, connected and brainstormed, until we had nutted out the core of our organisation, and firmly landed on our WHY. It was an extremely powerful process that has been instrumental in underpinning our workplace culture. Michelle is an engaging facilitator who has a natural flare for leadership, developing people and creating synergies with colleagues in the workplace. The team at Being More Human have a contagious passion for empowering people, backed by years of experience in everything to do with culture building, leadership development, HR and strategic planning. Highly recommended for anyone looking to positively improve their humans, workplace or themselves!”

“We have been working with Michelle Crawford and Being More Human for several years now. It has been a great journey to see our senior team members learning together and individually and become far more aware of the themselves and the impact they have as leaders. Our culture was always good, but struggled with the basics of people growing from technicians to leaders. The gradual transformation is noticed and there has been plenty of moments when you see major leaps in growth in our team. I would describe our culture as great. It is a daily pleasure wo work with a team that is our business family. Our business strategies are now far more clear and lived by the team. Our focus has been on our leaders and we can see the benefits they are now sharing with their teams. Being More Human has been a critical part of this change, taking the time to get to know our people and their drivers. The level of trust and respect is critical to engaging on a growth/change process. I have worked with various business “consultants” over the last 25 years, Michelle is very different and has knowledge, practical experience to guide us through challenges and show us how to better approach them ourselves. We have truly become More Human.”

“Thank you to Nicci who provided Coast Shelter with recent training for our eleven Program Managers. Nicci directed the course topics with real efficiency. In the space of a relatively short time, she managed to achieve a warm and genuine relationship with each of our Managers, making them feel relaxed about airing any problems or issues they were facing and equipping them with the skills and techniques to arrive at possible solutions. Thanks again Nicci you were awesome!”
Shayne Silvers, Operations Manager
“Nicci commenced training our Managers in the Human Manager series in November 2015. For the past year, she’s also provided monthly team building workshops to Kitsu Kids, with a focus on the business’ Values. Nicci’s training emphasises an awareness of self and others, individual and group wellbeing and uses a strengths-based approach. Her training is fun, creative and inclusive and has supported the development of the cohesive and passionate team that is Kitsu Kids. I would sing Nicci’s praises any day!”
Brooke Little, CEO
“I feel this has been a very healthy process, and we look forward to seeing further options moving forward. But at this stage, on behalf of the Board I would like to thank you and BMH for the job well done. Your engagement has been at a depth we hoped someone would commit to; a depth that provides quality insight and suggestion.”
Ty Brennock, Board Member
“Prior to meeting Michelle Crawford, the director of Being More Human, I had no idea what Life Styles Inventory was about. Over the course of two days we looked at some concepts and ideas that I had never thought of, and to be honest it was quite overwhelming. Michelle, however was engaging and created a confidence in yourself that you would be able to use the tools she showed us to develop ourselves. She sat with me while I ate my lunch and asked about my life, where I live and what I want to do with my future – with no hesitation at all. This showed Michelle’s genuine interest and care for the people around her and that is one of the main things I took away from the training exercise – to be more present and vulnerable in my life. Now I have an understanding of it all, I am working towards strengthening myself with intent.”
