A clear, actionable plan to fight frustration at work, make savvier decisions, and avoid costly mistakes.

Conflicts with colleagues, competing deadlines, demands for instant responses . . . More of us are asking, How can we be effective when we feel we don't have time and are facing nonstop demands?

In The Power of Pause, Nance Guilmartin outlines the proven process that she has taught successfully to thousands of people worldwide. This practical method helps even the most overwhelmed among us take a moment to pause and wonder what's called for when we feel short on time, attention, temper, or choices. In that instant, we can use a simple method to rewire our overloaded circuits, tap into our "missing-in-action" common sense, regain control of our reactions, and raise our communication intelligence. This process is not about slowing down the pace of workday life. It is about enabling anyone to be your best when dealing with deadlines, change, or fast-moving opportunities.

Filled with engaging real-life stories and case studies, The Power of Pause helps individuals, managers, and teams:

  • Achieve goals with less stress
  • Lead with confidence in the face of uncertainty and change
  • Make better decisions and work smarter together, not harder
  • Quickly turn demanding customers into loyal fans
  • Use a simple process to prevent misunderstandings and resolve disputes

Using the Power of Pause process enables readers to become more resilient in the face of change, save time and money, and help others be their best—even when dealing with competition, cultural and language differences, or tight budgets.
