about us.

Urgent Humanity's Mission and Vision

Urgent Humanity's mission is to support organizations' ability to "do good" while simultaneously "being well".  We work with companies or leaders to design and transform organizational systems and culture.  Imbalances around urgency lead to a culture of challenges and people leaving the workplace.  Imbalances around humanity lead to people feeling good while nothing gets accomplished.  We support organizations in operating at high levels of humanity in order for the urgent nature of their work to get accomplished.

Urgent Humanity Theory of Change

Balancing Urgency and Humanity

Urgent Humanity Consulting Approach

Urgent Humanity's Approach

Our work is centered on the concepts of PERMA, a theory developed by Dr. Martin Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania.  PERMA is a theory on well-being that codifies the five building blocks that enable human beings to flourish (Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment).  Urgent Humanity applies the theory of PERMA as a way for organizations to build common language and to reflect on their organizational systems and culture to see if they are enabling staff to thrive and ultimately be well while simultaneously driving outcomes.

Our workplace and organizational landscape has changed greatly.  From the great resignation to the rise of quiet quitting, people are leaving work at higher rates than ever before.  It is imperative that we focus on people’s ability to flourish.  Scientific evidence shows that a focus on flourishing allows workers to do great work with urgency while tending to the humanity of people and their well being.  Ultimately this results in:

Improved Workplace Culture

Increased Staff Retention

Increased Productivity
