Elina Teboul – the Russian born, New York raised, corporate lawyer, turned Facilitator, Speaker and entrepreneur with a mission to empower people and organizations to flourish through science-backed behavioral solutions, is this week’s guest Elina Teboul.
Graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from New York University and a J.D. from Columbia Law School, Elina became a corporate lawyer at top NY Law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell.
Elina Teboul is a powerhouse of positive energy and focus. The legal world never stood a chance and it was not long until Elina found herself Studying Psychology at Columbia University in NYC.
Realizing that powerful mindfulness techniques based on positive psychology weren’t easily accessible in most corporations, Elina started The LightUp Lab to address this gap in the market with the mission of cracking the code to happiness.
We cover a lot of ground in this interview so we have made it a two-parter.
Part-one covers her upbringing in Brighton Beach, her journey to creating the LightUp Lab, the value Elina Teboul delivers, her methodology, goal-setting principles. We also cover the tools necessary to unlock and sustain the full potential of people in business.
In Part-two we get more into curiosity, creativity, education, passion, principles, and all our quick-fire questions
