"I realized that I don't need a vacation from work to reduce my stress, I need to Pause Breathe Proceed."

-Employee, Perennial Park

When work culture is toxic, businesses experience:

  • Soaring employee turnover

  • High absenteeism

  • Low productivity

Burnout and silent quitting is plaguing businesses like never before. When your work culture is full of negative, overstressed and toxic mindsets team productivity tanks, people don't want to show up and they ultimately decide to walk away leaving you scrambling, forever putting out fires.

Work culture expectations are changing like never before

1 in 5 employees say they experience a toxic work environment

The Surgeon General report says that 92% of employees say it's important to work for a company that prioritizes employee mental health.

81% report that workplace stress affects their mental health.

You need happy, healthy and positive employees that are productive, dependable, and professional.

So, here’s the real talk:

  • Do you need someone to simply explain how to reduce stress in a way everyone can understand and implement?

  • ​Are your employees just not hitting their stride lately? Is burnout, lack of motivation, or that "meh" feeling starting to creep in?

  • Is it a challenge to keep the office vibes positive and the lines of communication wide open, without stumbling into misunderstandings or office drama?

  • Does the idea of transforming a not-so-great work culture into an inclusive, diverse, and supportive space seem like an uphill battle?

  • Ever wish you could empower your leadership team so they could understand your employees' needs and navigate the rough patches?

  • ​Are you starting to see some not-so-great side effects, like unhappy customers, more folks leaving than staying, innovation hitting a plateau, teamwork not being so. . . team-y, and the feeling that you're not fully tapping into your employees' potential?

If you nodded your head to any of these, it’s time for a chat.

Pause Breathe Proceed is your solution to show your team that you care about their mental health — especially to the overwhelmed, burned out, stressed out team members.

Hi, I'm Karen Wright, founder and facilitator with Pause Breathe Proceed. I have an inner MBA from Sounds True (the leader in the mindfulness industry) and New York University. Over the last few years I have been working with businesses and individuals teaching them how to reduce stress with a proven, simple and effective method. I wish I would have known Pause Breathe Proceed when I was stressed to the max in corporate America.

“I was a corporate consultant for Fortune 500 companies for over nine years. I KNOW stress. Ironically, I left corporate America to find a solution to stress in the workspace”

What makes PBP different then other stress reduction solutions?

1. PBP creates a common language, Pause Breathe Proceed, that is non-threatening and can be used to diffuse reactivity in the work place.
