Want to Customize Pause?

We designed Pause with customization in mind. If you are interested in a special version of Pause that's tailored to your company or to a specific team, we are happy to work with you. Here are some customizations we've talked about internally:

In Your Office

Maybe you and your team aren't in Phoenix, Arizona. Or maybe you are. Either way, you want us to come on site to deliver Pause? No problem! There aren't any special requirements to keep the program bound to our office. If you've got a projector and screen, or a large television we can use, and a room with enough chairs, that's pretty much all we need. We'll bring our own gear, swag, and materials.

Customized Modules

The 5 modules in Pause are pretty generic so as to meet the widest audience possible. If you would like for us to tailor the program to your company or tie in specific aspects of your approach, we're pretty flexible about that. After we talk a little, we'll share our materials with you and ask you questions to ensure that we can modify Pause and still make it highly successful for you and your team.

Virtual/Online Delivery

While it is not an ideal scenario for us, we understand that there are a lot of distributed teams out there. That's cool with us! We are able to do virtual training, too. As long as everyone in the training is available at the same time, then we can do what we need. We're equipped with all the tech we need to deliver a successful virtual training experience.

Co-Delivery

If you're interested in helping us to deliver the Pause content, that's excellent! We think it's great that someone can be an internal ambassador and representative of the material. All we need to do is ensure we can remain highly aligned before, during, and after the delivery so as to ensure a great experience for you and your team.

Employers: Why Pause?

We've had a few people ask why a manager/boss should consider sending employees to our Pause program. The answer is fairly simple, but it's not brief.

Allen and I are both people managers. We've hired people in all sorts of fields at all levels of experience. Whether filling an entry-level, part-time role or a six-figure, senior-level role, we've found that skilled people are a dime a dozen. Great team members and solid communicators are much, much harder to find.

The availability of role-specific skills training materials is very high. A half hour on YouTube can teach you how to plumb a shower, balance a company budget, or build a fusion reactor in your backyard. However, the training that employees need to be mature and effective members of a team is not widely available.

Pause is a program written in collaboration with senior-level technicians and executives specifically to cover the "soft skill" mentorship that many employees lack and many mentors have trouble articulating and passing on. By cherry-picking the best and most relevant content from highly successful professional development books, we are able to save Pause participants years of frustration and searching for career goals and next-steps.

We initially created Pause to target high-potential employees and help fill in the "soft skill" gap. It turns out that the content of Pause is so potent, even the C-level folks in our pilot group found it eye-opening and applicable.

If you're an employer thinking about sending someone from your team/company our way, give us a call at (602) 999-1711 or send us an email at info@kensho.io. We've got great testimonials to share, too!

This class has helped me immensely understanding my values, the way I work, a deeper understanding of both my boss and company, and how to align not only to improve my work performance, but find incredible balance and peace within my work/family life. I have learned how to understand people and goals in a completely new way, and the group style and activities helped me express my ideas and goals in a safe comfortable environment. I have never been to a class where I did not have an ah-ha moment where the new lesson just appeared so clearly, and the amazing teacher worked well to make me feel like not only was I a student, but a living part of Kensho. I would highly recommend this program to companies as well as individuals seeking a higher understanding. I know I will take these lessons through my life.
