    Sometimes business people don’t relate to positive psychology. They’re suspicious of it. They wonder how it’s really going to help them in their work. After following this masterclass, I feel confident explaining to management how to create an atmosphere that promotes well-being and meaningful work and make a direct connection with the bottom line. This can be a magnet for attracting top talent.

    At first, I wasn’t quite sure whether this masterclass was for me because I’m not a therapist and mostly work with business managers and employees. Soon I realized how much this knowledge will help to create an atmosphere at the workplace that will allow everyone to experience more meaning and feel more fulfilled at the end of the day.
