Leading in a Frenetic World

Bestselling author Charles Fred presents research showing the impact of stress on organizational performance and how quickly stress can spread when enabled with technology. This book introduces the discipline of pause as a required leadership competency.

“Pause is not a delay but a discipline. It’s not a waste of time; rather, it affords us the time to deliberate before we act. It allows us to control how we respond and react to others, whether it takes five seconds or 24 hours. Most importantly, it does not delay our ambitions or dampen the need to hustle.”

Designed to take 35 minutes of your time, this book explains why you should make the decision to pause, which can have a profound effect on your life and how you lead.
