Bringing real life to education
HB EDU is on a mission to bring conscious living to formal education.
We are formalizing the spirit of what the Handel Group has done through its Education Division for almost two decades – engaging in philanthropic efforts by providing services to students and educational institutions of all shapes and sizes.
Through the launch of Human Better EDU as a nonprofit organization, we are able to expand our proven programs and methodology to serve a broader spectrum of students, teachers, administrators, and educational institutions, including those who have been historically and structurally disadvantaged. We also train educators to bring coaching and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) principles into the classroom.

Our straightforward and innovative method has changed the lives of thousands of private and corporate clients and has been taught in over 50 educational programs including MIT and Stanford Graduate School of Business.
We teach, evolve, and support students, those who teach them, and the institutional cultures that are in service of effective learning.
We deliver scalable coaching and life design solutions to individuals and communities, to elevate Personal Integrity® and conscious living in a variety of educational and organizational contexts, and to support people to effectively connect with and realize their dreams.

President and Co-Founder of Human Better Edu, and EVP at Handel Group
Gaby Jordan is the President and Co-Founder of Human Better EDU. She has a deep passion for empowering parents, students, administrators and faculty across all levels of education that stems from her own commitment to education and students thriving.
Her dedication to this cause and understanding of the value of education started at a young age. Gaby was raised by a single mother who worked tirelessly against the odds to provide an education for her, which resulted in Gaby being the first in her own family to attend college, and then law school.
For 16 years, she has led programming in over 50 universities and educational institutions, both domestically and internationally, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, London School of Economics, Stanford Graduate Schools of Business and Medicine, NYU, Columbia, Yale, Vienna U of Economics and Business, University of Texas at Austin, and in the NYC public school systems, to name a few.
Gaby is also an executive coach and has trained individuals and teams for over 25 years, and she serves as EVP for Handel Group where since 2006 she has coached executives, managers, and entrepreneurs in major companies.
Gaby is the mother of two grown daughters and lives in New York City with her husband Robert where they (as singers) love to make music together.
