If you’re noticing any of the following at your organization, it’s time to address a deeper cultural trend:

  • Boundaries are deteriorating, creating role confusion or resentment
  • High performers are starting to call out, and fewer people are chiming in on once-collaborative meetings
  • HR is reporting an increase in reasonable accommodation requests, and employee retention rates are declining
  • Innovation is lagging, some people don’t last a year, and a looming threat of reputational damage is starting to drive decision-making

It’s bigger than burnout

We’re believers that burnout is a symptom, not a root cause diagnosis


Defining and integrating company, department, and personal values into work projects, processes and products restores trust. 


Modeling vulnerability, accountability, transparency, and curiosity allows organizations to introduce more opportunities for innovation, and bring out the best in their people. 


Invite participation and set boundaries. These two practices engage employees in sustainable work relationships. 

Our three step process and proprietary burnout spectrum create a work environment where each individual is contributing to the company’s future. 

To keep your teams on the leading edge of your industry, you’ll need to rethink innovation — and start thinking about the perspective of the individual. 

  • Communication is freely flowing in a healthy, productive way
  • Your top talent is performing at their best, and because they’re happy, they’re attracting other top talent 
  • There’s an increased sense of resilience, agility, and creativity
  • Individuals and innovation are thriving
  • Your company is on the leading edge of its industry 

Creating team cohesion and a generative company culture 

We transform workplaces by reducing burnout and bias, resulting in increased innovation and inclusion.

Tina Fang - Chief Deputy at Colorado Office of Public Defenders

Working with Kelley is easy and supportive. She has the connections necessary to help build a plan that incorporates many different layers of a strategy. She is flexible and strives to meet the needs of the organization. So far, we have been able to launch a whole cache of resources and she remains in contact for follow-up help and ideas as needed. I highly recommend her.

Elizabeth Gouéti - Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging at NetApp

I’ve had the privilege of working with Kelley multiple times to develop strategies to drive equity in large tech organizations. She has the keen ability to leverage data and manage the human side of this work to bring forth success. Through her work, I’ve been able to move the needle in a meaningful way. Kelley makes strategy sexy.

Working with [Burn Bright] has been a great experience. They are superb at translating deep expertise in mental health into an engaging and impactful experience for participants. They took the time to understand our organization’s mission-driven, scientific culture. We were able to create multiple workshops that served our community, and I happily referred them to colleagues at other organizations because of the quality of their work.

Wellbeing Director at The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

We worked with Kelley on a Fortune 500 C-level leadership offsite event. She took time to deeply understand the audience so she could deliver the most impactful presentation, guide difficult but necessary discussions, and facilitate workshops to help the team evolve their thinking and behaviors. Her approach to inclusive innovation, diversity and belonging was presented in the context of broader corporate goals and strategies, creating the necessary connection between the two for our client. She is truly a powerhouse and is uniquely skilled at moving the needle on helping teams operate with an “inclusive innovation” approach. We could not recommend her enough and look forward to teaming up with her again!
