Ricardo Paz

People & Culture Elder at The Wellbeing Project



Ricardo is from Venezuela and has Psychology/Human Resources degrees. He has dedicated his career of more than 40 years to the mission of developing successful workplaces, so people can realize their potential in them.

Joined TWP on 2021 to advise on People & Culture and help to develop the Team to reach their goals.

Development begins with self-knowledge, and it never ends. Constant awareness of who we are provide us with BALANCE and that is WELLBEING for him: the dynamic and conscious effort to reconcile who we are and who we want to be.

A ritual he usually does is every night, before sleep, review what happened during the day and try to learn something from that day.

He follows Adam Grant, an American Organizational Psychologist and professor at Wharton School, with excellent research and individual development tips, including ways to improve your thinking and behavior.

Ricardo believes that you get what you give to others in life. There is also a connection between thoughts, words, and actions. That congruence is the beginning of BEING WELL individually and collectively.

What does inner wellbeing mean to you?

A continuous process, a journey

How would you define wellbeing in one word?


Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?

A short meditation at night before going to sleep.

Why is it important that we prioritise individual and collective wellbeing?

Everything is connected: feelings, emotions, health, thoughts, and actions.  Wellbeing Inspires Welldoing.

Do you have any favourite books, podcasts, or articles that you believe support, promote or educate on wellbeing and related themes?

I read, many years ago, “Sidharta” by Hermann Hesse.  This book impacted me very much and contains a precious perspective on life. A quote from the book: I want to learn from myself, I want to be my disciple, to know myself.”
