About Thrive Legal

The Thrive Legal Community is brought to you by Being Human, a company founded by sisters, Helen & Claire.

Our mission is to drive change in the legal profession by empowering our members with knowledge about the human body, mind and behaviour to better understand our fundamental capability and limitations. The Thrive Legal Community was established to ensure that essential human skills training is available to all in-house lawyers, irrespective of their learning and development budget.

The Thrive Legal Community is rooted in our core values of accessibility, inclusivity and a human-first approach to delivery.

 

About Being Human

Using the discipline of Human Factors as our framework, we apply scientific knowledge about the human body, mind and behaviour to better understand our fundamental capabilities and limitations.

 

We use that understanding to shape the optimum environment for technical skills and human skills to work together to maximise human performance.

 

Human Factors is an integral part of all aviation and medical training, and we believe that it has equal value to the legal and veterinary professions.
