When Ron Furlong began his career as a photographer, it didn't occur to him that it would provide the foundation for a career in human resources. But he discovered that his photographic subjects taught him the basics of human behaviour.
"Babies and brides are two of the toughest subjects you can shoot," says Furlong. "Babies have a very short attention span. To catch that magical image I had to create ways of getting their attention. Brides, on the other hand, know exactly what they want and how they want it. That meant I had to be flexible and listen."
That same approach led the way to success for Furlong when dealing with clients in his company EPR Resources, a human resource management company based in Dartmouth, specializing in management training.
