Testimonials

Felicidad Cristobal

"We all know that things arrive in our life at the right moment, but having worked in the first steel global company (ArcelorMittal) and later as the CEO of its global foundation for many years, I wish I would have known then what I learned with Tal Ben-Shahar. I would have suffered less, I would have understood more... Companies would spend less money in coaching their executives suffering from burn-out. Nevertheless, now that I am walking new paths I am applying all have learned to live with a deeper happiness!
Thank you Tal!
