entelechy-logo“I was destined to have this card today,” or, “God sent me this card.” Those are some of the reactions Donna Iacopucci, Executive Vice President of Entelechy, Inc. gets when using the Pause book and cards in Entelechy’s core program, Unleash your Leadership Potential.

“When I do a train the trainer, I use them during the training and I give participants their own copy so they can use them during and after the training. I walk around the room, fan out the 52 cards, and say, ‘Pick a card.’ Everyone picks one and I ask them to read their card, then I read the corresponding section from the book aloud. People have positive responses such as, ‘I was destined to have this card today,’ or, ‘God sent me this card.’”

They help everybody be a better leader

Donna noted that after the training, leaders and managers love having the cards on their desks. People will pick one card for the day and post it on their computer. “They help everybody be a better leader,” she says.

The word, entelechy, comes from the Latin for “unlocking potential.” Entelechy specializes in customized management and leadership development programs and customer service training for clients such as Direct TV and CA Technology.

In their core program, Unleash your Leadership Potential, Pause book and cards are used in the training as well as given out as gifts to trainers and senior leaders. Donna teaches her clients about the importance of taking a pause to reflect on the moment and their leadership.

Thank you very much to Donna Iacopucci and Entelechy, Inc. for your meaningful and powerful work!

Pause Used at the Institute for Courageous Principal Leadership

June 1st, 2015   •   Blog, Leadership, News   •   Comments Off on Pause Used at the Institute for Courageous Principal Leadership   

by Sheri Boone

Minnesota StateThis month we are very happy to feature the excellent work of the Institute for Courageous Principal Leadership at Minnesota State University, Mankato. We are extremely proud that our Pause book and card deck is a part of the Institute’s curriculum and is being used by the principals to navigate their change. The program is gaining national recognition for changing the way principals lead and for making a difference in school leadership.

Dr. Candace Raskin, Professor and Chair of the the Department of Educational Leadership tells us, “The Institute for Courageous Principal Leadership changes how they lead. The principals need to be courageous, and when they have resistance, we ask, ‘what tools can we use to help them get through this’?”

Focused on racial equity, with the realization that black students’ achievement is 30% lower than white students in test scores, the Institute’s two year program works with a cohort of 150 current and future principals from both urban and rural school districts in Minnesota.

The curriculum is aligned with current research on effective leadership and is infused with racial equity. Principals grow in all areas and are more racially engaged and focused. The program is committed to developing courageous leaders who deliberately educate all students, including students of color.

Thank you, Dr. Raskin and your faculty of former principals and superintendents, for the wonderful work the Institute is providing these excellent educators!

Pause Book and Cards Now Available

June 20th, 2011   •   News   •   Comments Off on Pause Book and Cards Now Available   

Inspired Mastery is excited to announce the publication of our new card deck and book for leaders, Pause: 52 Ways to Shift Any Outcome in Less Than a Minute.

We’ve put together 52 short practices of in-the-moment inspiration for leaders and teams. Each practice creates a pause, opening a space for a new perspective that can transform any situation.

Marshall Goldsmith, author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There and MOJO, says our book and cards are, “a great resource for leaders everywhere.” Some of our other readers say:

  • “Any one of the 52 practices can help me to slow down and gain a healthy perspective when I get overwhelmed.” (Pat Inman)
  • “It made me stop and reflect when things get a little stressful during the day and it gave me something to focus on.” (Marjorie Ray)
  • “Pause provides unmatched guidance through inspirational quotes, practical examples, thought-provoking questions, and thoughtful articles.” (Jennifer Wolff Jones)

Watch a very short video of a satisfied Pause user talk about how she uses the book and cards.

What we love about our creation is that it’s not just a book. The card deck is a unique approach to gaining inspiration and unleashing insight.

The book and cards are available at our bookstore. You can also buy the book in print or kindle versions on Amazon, the Nook version on Barnes and Noble, and epub version for all other readers at Inspired Mastery Store on Lulu. Cards are only available at the Inspired Mastery website.
