A TAKE

“The PA– USE Principle”  by Kevin Cashman 

According to Cashman, The Pause Principle can be a life-changing leadership experience, but it is one that requires “an intentional, conscious stepping back togo deeply into yourself, your leadership and the world you touch in order to lead forward with deliberate purpose.”

Cashman believes pause powers performance. By harnessing the Pause Principle, you give yourself and your team the ability to stop the speeding train of business before it derails. The Pause Principle offers support for the belief that the best way to successfully move ahead is to slow down.

My Thoughts:  Slowing down is a foreign concept in most organizations.  Executives are quick to instruct “ready, fire, aim.”  The mantra to act now and think later seems to have become a badge of honor.

The Pause Principle is a paradigm shifting read.
