In this episode we have the great honor of talking with Professor Tal Ben Shahar. He shares his ideas on many topics: from the need of a more interdisciplinary scholarship, to corporate wellness. From Happiness as the basis for success, to Responsibility as the basis for co-creating new paradigms. Stories are the building blocks of our social DNA and our psychology: they are the best, if not the only, way to interpret, connect and collaborate as a local/global community. Businesses are a tremendous force as shapers of reality and the name of the game is changing for corporations. Doing well in terms of monetary profit is just a byproduct of doing good to all stakeholders: employees, clients, planet and community.

After graduating from Harvard in Philosophy, Psychology and Organizational Behavior, he taught the most popular course in Harvard’s history.
