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.

the dysons ,

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.
