Publisher's Summary

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. Presenting the highly effective framework that Beheshti has used with clients for over a decade, this book empowers you to fulfill your highest business, personal, and social potential.

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 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.

Enlightening blend of experience and perspective

This book was remarkable in a myriad of ways, from its ease of listening to the summaries provided, second only to the content and lessons to learn thru the eyes of Naz. My only wish was that I had come across this easy to absorb book prior to living thru and experiencing the full impact of caregiver burnout, and its ultimate consequences professionally.

Good basics for someone who's new to this concept

I didn't find anything new in this author's concept. It would be a more compelling message with less talk about her own journey and more about where we can all go to change our mindset. If given the choice between Brené Brown and Naz Beheshti, I prefer Brené
