One of the most frustrating dilemmas for working people today is how to be effective when we feel we don't have time or we're facing non-stop demands. This book gives readers high-speed tools to solve that dilemma using an approach that, as is often the case in business success, is paradoxical. The solution that is the most powerful is not always the most obvious which is why when you discover it, it's powerful. It's called: The Power of Pause.The Power of Pause process is a 21 st century practice that international author, Nance Guilmartin, has taught thousands of people to use in a 24/7 world. It is a method that dares us to take a moment to wonder what's called for when we feel we're short on time, attention, temper or choices. Whether we're managing or working for a company, a nonprofit organization, a government agency, a hospital, a school, a customer service help line, or ourselves, we can learn to briefly put our assumptions and reactions on hold. In that instant, we can use a simple method to rewire our overloaded circuits, tap into our 'missing-in-action' common sense, and raise our communication intelligence.In a nutshell: This book provides readers with a powerful framework and an "Effectiveness Equation" to make better decisions in a non-stop world. It is not a book about slowing down the pace of workday life. It is a book that enables time-pressed readers to make savvier choices and avoid costly mistakes. How? By quickly uncovering better options that lie beneath the surface of high-speed reactions, which positions readers to be more effective "rapid responders."Readers get mental short cuts to productively respond to what someone said, what someone meant and what was left unsaid. They exercise leadership skills -that save time and strengthen relationships - by taking responsibility, in advance , for being understood rather than assuming their meaning was clear the first time. They regain a sense of humor and tolerance, and stop taking it personally when communication miscues happen in the multitasking, increasingly diverse workplace. They engage one another in productive exchanges instead of attacking or being resigned. In addition, The Power of Pause methods enable managers and teams to save time and money because they can now fix problems and achieve goals with less stress - even in the face of competition, cultural or language differences or tight budgets.
