Esther Perel

Why she's the right human
What can New York Times bestselling author and relationship philosopher Esther Perel tell us about workplace success? Turns out, a whole lot. As a famed psychotherapist, Esther Perel brings a fresh perspective to everything that shapes workplace dynamics, connections, and conflict, encouraging leaders to build more trusting and empathetic relationships. She’ll be your guide in boosting culture, engagement, and retention by showing you how to help your employees – and their relationships – thrive. Because – as Esther believes – the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives.
"Work has become a major place where people want to experience a sense of identity, belonging, purpose and growth."
A little more about Esther for the road

Since arriving as a graduate student in the United States, Perel has examined relationships and quality of life from every angle: the nature of cultural and religious identity; the negotiation between tradition and modernity; the ebb and flow between individualism and collectivism; and more. She observed interracial and interreligious couples; the cultural forces that affect gender roles; practices of childrearing; and ultimately, the tensions, obstacles, and anxieties that arise when our quest for love and security conflicts with our pursuit of adventure and freedom.

As a psychotherapist, Perel has helmed a therapy practice in New York City for more than 35 years. In parallel, she serves as an organizational consultant for Fortune 500 companies around the world. Fluent in nine languages, Perel’s celebrated TED talks have garnered more than 40 million views and her bestselling books have been translated into more than 30 languages. Perel is an executive producer and host of the award-winning podcast “Where Should We Begin?” Her podcast “How’s Work?” focuses on workplace dynamics and can be enjoyed anywhere you enjoy your podcasts.
