About Pause

Too many leaders feel daunted, with full diaries and little time to think.  With so many things needing attention, work can feel overwhelming at times.

In their busyness, many leaders are in danger of losing sight of what’s really important – their connection and relationships with team members and colleagues.

This is why I’ve written Pause.  My message is simple; that by slowing down and investing time to rethink your leadership, you can positively impact the culture around you.

In this book, I’ll show you how you can…

  • Stop feeling like a bottleneck in your company,
  • Inspire your team and colleagues, by engaging them more effectively,
  • Evolve your leadership by letting go of outdated attitudes and behaviours, and
  • Support your team in thinking for themselvees, becoming more autonomous, more fulfilled and more productive.

Are you ready to Pause, rethink leadership and discover how you can be the change required to improve your workplace culture?
