Pause to learn more about emotional intelligence and leadership

The Pausecast is great! Rachael calls a pause and intentional shift in behavior and that’s exactly what this show is - an opportunity to pause and learn from Rachael and her guests on what I can do differently to create the shifts in life that I want to create.

Erric Solomon episode

I just listed to episode 29. This was my first time listening to The Pausecast. Rachael’s guest Erric Solomon had profound but also practical suggestions for feeling less anxious and finding meaning in our always-on world.

High Value

I've listened to many of Rachael's podcasts and really appreciate the depth of her interviews and the quality of her guests. Along with the quality, I've enjoyed the humility that comes with real expertize - both in Rachael and her guests. And, of course, it's not possible to have a meaningful life without the pauses that make a difference. Even beautiful music is made more beautiful by the silence in between. I appreciate so much that Rachael brings to us so many creative ways to bring those pauses into our lives.
