LightUp Lab Founder is 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 – welcome 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 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.
In Part-two we get more into curiosity, creativity, education, passion, principles, and how she offers value through LightUp Lab and all our quick-fire questions
I hope you enjoy this enlightening insight into Elina’s fitness class for the mind.
