MANAGING THE HUMAN SIDE OF BUSINESS | with Small Business HR, founder of Paradigm, Kira La Forgia
Happiness in the workplace matters and the human side of business not only impacts the internal organization, its leadership, and employee engagement, but also affects customer experience, nurturing relationships, and cultivating partnerships.
Kira La Forgia has firsthand experience with the challenges involved in managing the human side of running a business. After struggling with burnout and being diagnosed with PTSD, Kira realized the importance of delegating tasks and taking care of her mental health. She learned this lesson the hard way, having tried to take on everything herself, which ultimately led to her experiencing significant stress and burnout. In fact, it took a team of six people to effectively replace Kira and take on the responsibilities she had been managing alone.
Her mission in life is to empower women to identify their unique skills and passions and turn them into profitable businesses so they can have the freedom to live their life on their own terms. She believes that entrepreneurship is not a one size fits all model, in fact, being an entrepreneur means making your own model, built around your values and lifestyle. With a decade of experience working in both corporate and small business environments, Kira’s method utilizes the predictability of traditional business models and adapts them to modern innovation, and unique experiences, and stays focused on measurable results. AKA make money off of doing what you are already great at!
