Bring Your Human to Work

Career Development and Author Speaker Series

 

No one can argue that technology has transformed our world in myriad ways. It’s allowed us to innovate rapidly, connect instantly, and get things done quickly. But it’s also made the pace of life dizzying and work more overwhelming and impersonal. In the midst of our digital deluge, we have become disconnected from each other. This is bad for business and worse for people. So how can companies create workplaces and practices that encourage human connection? In BRING YOUR HUMAN TO WORK: 10 Surefire Ways to Design a Workplace That’s Good for People, Great for Business, and Just Might Change the World (McGraw-Hill; On Sale September 25, 2018) author Erica Keswin shows how the future of work requires honoring relationships in everything we do, from creating our values to the way we run meetings, who we hire, how we use technology, whom we partner with, and how we evaluate and reward talent.

Erica Keswin is a workplace strategist, executive coach, and the founder of the Spaghetti Project, a unique platform that shares the science and stories of connections at work with companies, teams, individuals, and communities. Erica has worked as a consultant at the Hay Group and Booz Allen & Hamilton, as the Executive Director at Russell Reynolds Associates, and as an executive coach at NYU’s Stern School of Business.

Throughout her twenty-plus years working with some of the most iconic brands in the world, Erica has found that relationships are the most powerful driver of success for individuals and companies striving to attract and retain talent and loyal customers. Through her consulting and her research, Erica has developed a tried-and-true, human roadmap for people seeking a more meaningful and connected work life.

Bring Your Human to Work is Erica’s guide for the workplace revolution that honors relationships and puts people first.
