Arch Fuston

Founder,
Human, Better!

Human, Better! is a personal performance coaching and professional well-being consulting practice. Since 2007, Arch has been helping individuals and organizations navigate the obstacles between work, life, and well-being as Director of Employee Engagement at the ACTIVE Network where he created, nurtured, and scaled an award-winning, highly-participated and effective well-being program known as ACTIVEx.

In 2017, Arch started Human, Better! with the similar intention of guiding individuals and organizations towards building better environments for human thriving. Arch is a certified professional coach, a stress mastery educator, has a certificate in positive psychology through UPenn (via Coursera), and is a member of The American Institute of Stress. Arch likes people to know that he is just like you. His knowledge and experience don’t inoculate him from the challenges of life, but over the years he’s learned to experience those challenges, better. He calls it his “Me-hD,” and was motivated to earn it because he admittedly used to be terrible at stress! Oh, the irony.
