"Bena did a stress management training for senior executives and I personally found it very useful. The techniques that Bena shared during her session was personally very helpful for me. The CD and book she provided were very helpful and something that I use to practice meditation and concentration each week. I recommend for anyone that has a busy stressful life and is seeking more balance."

"If achieving work/life balance is one of your goals, I cannot think of a better coach than Bena. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with her several times over many years. Each experience enriched my life and helped me be a more effective person."

"Bena has a refreshing approach to teaching. So many classes only emphasize the “what.” Bena takes that one step further in demonstrating the “how” as well. She creates a fun, observation based, interactive, classroom experience utilizing self-awareness and discovery to drive personal growth and development. Her balanced approach to teaching also addresses physical and mental well-being in conjunction with knowledge sharing to improve your ability to creatively address challenges, resolve conflict, and provide clarity around decision making. She helps her students develop skills to manage stress and control chatter in order to perform at their best in any situation. The self-management techniques she teaches are simple, sustainable, and deliver immediate benefit on both a personal and professional level."

"A terrific speaker at a Merrill Lynch offsite first recommended Bena to me in 2005. Since then I have worked with her on multiple occasions, and find that her style and insights consistently produce an immediate positive result. Bena understands the physical and mental stress that goes along with working in a fast-paced industry, and has many easy to use and impactful tips to help focus on priorities and eliminate the noise."

"I recently took the course Intercultural Competence, not because it was a requirement of the MBA program but because of the rave reviews on Bena Long...I felt compelled to see what all the buzz was about. Having completed the semester I can now say...if Bena is teaching a course, sign up! That said, don't expect a conventional classroom environment but do expect a concentrated focus on training your mind and body to function at peak performance levels when it come to decision process, creative solutions and stress management."
