Pause for Breath

Bringing the practices of mindfulness and dialogue to leadership conversations


This book is for leaders, coaches and practitioners who are intrigued by their contribution to, and impact on, conversations, and who are committed to cultivating an authentic presence and voice.

The book explores:

• the influence of internal dialogue on your interactions with others and your effectiveness in your organisation;
• how to increase your versatility in challenging or delicate conversations and to develop capacity for doing this in ‘bad weather’ (adverse conditions); and
• how to germinate systemic change, one leadership conversation at a time.

Pause for Breath gained a Silver Nautilus Award in 2012, in the category of Conscious Business and Leadership. Nautilus aim to recognise exceptional literary contributions to fields such as spiritual growth, responsible leadership and positive social change.

Pause for Breathe is the best leadership book. It is full of intelligent and thoughtful insights and practices. It is very engaging and at times funny, also practical with loads of great tales from real life. It blends things in a way that’s totally different and the writing style is a delight to read - I loved it!

by Aileen Brown

This is a fantastic and insightful book that invites us to become fully aware of ourselves and our impact. Reading it and spending time with Amanda as she brought its content to life in her workshops has been so informative for me in understanding the triggers of my behaviours. I now have tools to be able to stop, assess, breathe, gather myself and my support and proceed with a more mindful course of action. Thank you Amanda.
