Professionally in our work lives – business, team, organization, career, classroom, etc. And personally in our relationships, health, finances and home. The Power Pause is a 3-part process that make you feel good about what you have accomplished so far, give you insight on what to focus on the remaining five months of 2022, and provide clarity on what you can re-design, release or reflow.
