THE BREATHE ABOUT US

THE BREATHE WE’RE LANA & ELSHE,
CO-FOUNDERS OF
BREATHE
Our shared passion for people and for organizations to thrive and grow sent us on a pioneering journey to create a company that enable a better way to work.

Together with our team, we bring together decades of experience in leadership consulting, organizational culture, wellbeing, coaching, facilitation, marketing, innovation, communication, organizational strategy, client service and change management.

We don’t want to work with just any company. We want to partner with people and companies who believe what we believe – that wellbeing is the right of everyone and that organizations have a responsibility to make this happen. Not just because it makes business sense, but because it’s the right thing to do.

We’re so glad you found us.
We both come from decades of working in and with corporates. And we’ve also both
experienced burnout.

Even though our burnout stories are different - one of us was her own boss and the
other working for a big corporate – we’re both high performers who know what it feels
like to value work above all else and to measure our worth based on what we produce.

What became clear to us before we founded this company, was that wellbeing is a two
way street – people need to take responsibility for their wellbeing and companies need
to create the conditions for people to thrive.

But when we looked closer, we saw that on the whole, people were struggling - stress
and burnout and depression were at their highest levels ever - and organizations were
part of the problem.

We knew the way people were working was no longer working and we knew a solution
was required that would address both the individual and the organization – and so
BREATHE was born.

GOOD FOR PEOPLE
GOOD FOR BUSINESS

We believe everyone deserves to feel healthy and vital. Our wish is for people to be the best versions of themselves and for workplaces in South Africa to thrive and grow through the commitment and energy of their employees.

We also believe that prioritsing people is the key to driving productivity, growth and engagement.

A culture of wellbeing has the potential to transform the relationship between an organisation and its employees, and put both on the path to long term success.

OUR PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE

THE BREATHE

Humans are multi-faceted. We consider the 'whole-person' and its multiple dimensions.

THE BREATHE

Simplicity and creativity wins. Our portfolio of solutions is fresh, fun and inspiring to engage and meet people where they are at.

THE BREATHE

Humans are inherently wise. We help people become leaders of their own wellbeing.

THE BREATHE

Embrace science. The latest scientific evidence is the cornerstone of our methodology.

THE BREATHE

Humans are unique. One-size-fits-all approaches don't work, and we inspire personal wellness journeys.

THE BREATHE

Multiple, purposeful interventions are needed to effect change. Single interventions are just 'fluff'.
