First let me acknowledge that I have had the opportunity to have Nance Guilmartin teach the methods she espouses in this book to me first hand. The organization I work for had the foresight to bring her in to facilitate a senior staff retreat when our now former CEO joined us 4 years ago. She also did some follow up work with us during this time. Regardless of how you obtain the information, whether in person or in writing - her methods work. What you will find in this book are easy to understand methods on how to begin to take back control of your work time and if you are a manager - how to manage more effectively. The book is an easy read, the methods clear and understandable and more importantly she doesn't just tell you about the methods, she tells you HOW to implement them - both through instruction and example. Be forewarned, the book is so easy to read you can cruise through it almost too quickly. I suggest you pause frequently and reflect on what you just read and how you can implement it in your world before moving forward. As you will find by reading the book, pausing is one of the most important things you can do and will become part of your vocabulary.

Recently I held a one day leadership retreat with 25 researchers and attorneys. The core content was based on the concepts from Nance Guilmartin's book, The Power of Pause. Having been through many leadership programs in the past, the feedback from this group was telling - they felt that for the first time they had practical ways to deal with all the uncertainty in their environment and enjoyed having a leadership reference that provided such a broad range of tactics, behavioral guidelines and powerful examples of how situational awareness can build both personal and professional competencies;they were genuinely surprised at how relevant it was to their work. This book is unique in its approach to today's business challenges.

Four time Emmy winner, executive coach educator and author, Nance Guilmartin, shines with her latest book, "The Power of Pause: How to be More Effective in a Demanding, 24/7 World." The book contains Guilmartin's learnings gained from years strengthening people's capacity to change behavior...adopting more constructive and fulfilling ways to achieve their goals. Guilmartin's approach focuses on the "Power of the Pause" - pausing to make a choice, learn what is unknown, be curious, and be truly in-touch with the other.

In today's world, most respond immediately to what is seen, what is heard, and/or what is sensed. This automatic and emotionally unrestrained response can undermine our effectiveness, and our relationships with others. However, we have another choice after something happens, we can choose to pause. Pausing, even for a moment, provides THE opportunity for another perspective, a more effective response, and freedom from the tyranny of our emotions.

Guilmartin adds that the pause cannot stand alone and must be combined (which is covered in the book) with curiosity and humility to achieve the personal effectiveness and fulfillment she has successfully coached others to achieve.

Pause (Presence of Mind) + Curiosity + Humility = Professional Effectiveness and Personal Fulfillment

"The Power of the Pause" is not a mindless book like so many other self-help books, Guilmartin packs a lot into the book's 218 pages. She provides practical ways to apply the principles provided; the research that drive these practices; and true stories, case histories, and personal reflections on how the practices work in the real world.

The power of pause practices which are highlighted in this book are:
* Drive your choices instead of being driven
* Be aware of your filters (and theirs)
* Give the benefit of the doubt
* Stop putting deposits in your resentment bank account.
* Use rephrasing as a 21st century risk management tool
* Use the curious not furious approach
* Ask: What's on your plate?
* Ask: What Don't I know that I don't know?
* Take responsibility for being understood: reverse rephrase.
* Make withdrawals from your resentment bank account.
* Know your trigger points (and theirs)
* Strengthen relationships: Offer timely, specific appreciation.

The author sets high expectations - by the end of the book, she says the reader will be able to:
* "Suspend the urge to react on automatic and give himself/herself a chance to make better choices;
* Have a productive conversation in the midst of disagreement, or regain control when the unexpected happens, without launching personal attacks or getting ahead with an instant answer or reactionary defense;
* Hit their internal pause button, regroup, and discover what he/she didn't know he/she didn't know that can lead to an unimaginably successful result; and
* Put the effectiveness and communication intelligence practices in this book to work and helping others join with the reader, giving him/her more time and energy to do their best in a 'just do it' world."

Guilmartin wrote this book to help people "play the game to position" oneself and others for an opportunity to win. You may not always win but you will always be "positioned for a better chance to win." She succeeds and provides many gems for all who are struggling with time, life-balance, doing one's best work, being understood, trusting relationships, and/or change, uncertainty, and meaning...which is just about all of us!

Although things are moving faster now than ever, Nance Guilmartin contends that we must take time to pause in order to be effective. "Suspending the urge to react instantly when the stakes are high reflects the awareness and strength of character it takes to pause - to listen to learn, and then to lead."

Her equation, Pause (Presence of Mind) + Curiosity + Humility = Professional Effectiveness and Personal Fulfillment, is the underpinning of the entire book. We need to take time to learn more about the motivation of others and be open to the fact that our way is not always the best way. When we do this, we'll make better decisions that will also save time. As is often the case, taking time up front saves time in the end.

Nance views various tried and true but frequently ignored management practices, like listening and showing appreciation, through the lens of her Power of Pause formula. She provides many examples from both current affairs and her career to support her concepts. In this age where speed is the mantra, it is indeed important to recognize the power of pause.
