Karen Tobiasen

Founder, Thought Leader


Country or State



I’m a designer and facilitator of integrated transformations. Standing at the intersection between human and business transformation, I founded BreathingBusiness out of my passion for helping people and organizations go beyond their comfort zone to find enrichment and to come fully alive! As a business executive with over 20 years in People, Culture and Transformation leadership, I know a bit about transformation. I even wrote a book on it – The Heart Revolution – and through BreathingBusiness, I now help organizations design and deliver another way to transform. A lifelong student, learner and transformer, I hold a bachelor’s in Economics – specialized in Organizational Development –, an Executive MBA and a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy. But I originally started my career as a nurse, caring for terminally ill AIDS patients. Seeing how differently people would meet death – whether embracing it having truly lived or facing it begrudgingly with regret – gave me existential insight into the importance of living fully, both personally and professionally. Whatever the label, working with people, their well-being and transformation has been the red thread throughout my life. And I’m here to help everyone who wants to disrupt and enrich their lives – transforming through love and laughter – whether as individuals or whole organizations.
