Description

A leading-edge guide to how well-being drives success across all aspects of life

CEO, executive wellness coach, and thought leader Naz Beheshti distills the most valuable lessons she learned from her first boss and mentor, Steve Jobs, into a holistic method to live your best life. Pause. Breathe. Choose. presents the highly effective framework that Beheshti has used with clients for over a decade in book form for the first time.

Beheshti grew up in the heart of Silicon Valley, and her first job was at Apple as Jobs's executive assistant. Stints at other Fortune 500 companies followed. During these years, Beheshti absorbed lessons about pursuing her passion and purpose, innovating, and accumulating her greatest wealth. But she also learned that professional success cannot be sustained long-term without a holistic approach. Now more than ever, when stress and burnout are ubiquitous, we must access our authentic self by closing the gap between leading with our head and our heart. When we integrate every aspect of our life (career, relationships, self-care, and self-development) and fuel that ecosystem as a whole, we can both be well and do well.

The key to thriving in today's high-pressure culture is to cultivate deep self-awareness and strong emotional intelligence, which facilitates making mindful choices that transform your life: One conscious choice begets another. Rooted in neuroscience, mindfulness, and positive psychology, Pause. Breathe. Choose. is a guide for authentic self-discovery, better choices, and purposeful growth. Offering over 80 proven tools and strategies to improve yourself and your workplace and achieve sustainable success, this inspirational guide to becoming the CEO of your well-being teaches how to:
  • Master mindfulness to access your authentic self and make better choices
  • Strengthen self-awareness and emotional intelligence to cultivate stronger connections
  • Upgrade your mindset and behavior to take charge of your life
  • Manage stress and build resilience to bounce forward and thrive
  • Connect your head and your heart to lead with passion and purpose
  • Be at the top of your game in all areas of your life
  • Gain greater energy, clarity, and creativity to navigate change and growth with confidence
  • Improve employee well-being, employee engagement, and company culture in your organizations
Pause. Breathe. Choose. is an outgrowth of Beheshti's twenty-plus years of experience working at Fortune 500 companies, learning firsthand from luminaries ranging from Steve Jobs to the Dalai Lama, and consulting with and coaching international business leaders, entrepreneurs, startups, universities, and major global organizations.
