Calm Your Fear with a Silent Pause
Fear can drive us forward or hold us back. Fear can lie to us and hijack us into an emotional state of fight, flight, or freeze. And it can happen in a second – not giving the cognitive brain time to examine the situation and determine the best thought or course of action. But with Emotional Intelligence practices, we can learn to use fear to our advantage - by pausing to determine the best way to contribute to the situation (through thought, word, and/or action). Each of us has within us, the values of love, assessment, knowledge, and decision-making…which value should you use in a given situation? Listen as we speak with Lynn Taylor, of Taylor Protocols, who understands the power of fear and the power of the silent pause. He explains how to use the silent pause to examine the fear, determine what our best value in the moment is, and how to use that value to best contribute in any situation. Visit Lynn on his website https://www.taylorprotocols.com/ or contact him at Lynn.Taylor@taylorprotocols.com. And click here to get a FREE Core Values Index: http://bit.ly/CVI_FREE. After a quick self-assessment, you’ll immediately receive your personalized report, describing your top two value contributors – where you shine best in this world!

I Love Me So I Can Love You!
Relationships are very important to our wellbeing on many levels - but no relationship is more important than the one with yourself!We often think it's selfish to care for ourselves first, but it's truly the only way to fully care for others. Taking time for self-care and to nurture our mind, body, soul - and emotions - is time well spent. And it's not only valuable for us but to those around us, as well. Learning to love ourselves and do what's best for us (not what is required to meet others' expectations) can give us the freedom we need and can grow our personal power!Join us as we talk with Cathy Mott, a certified Social & Emotional Intelligence Coach, Executive Coach, Keynote Speaker, and Author of "“Shh…Just Listen! Great Things Happen in The Silence", about her journey to self-love and the impact it has had on her life, and on the lives of her family, friends, and clients.

Rock Your Emotional Wellness!
Parenting is a one of the most valuable, yet difficult, jobs one can have. And usually, parents are so busy taking care of others, that they neglect their own wellness. And while social and emotional learning for children and youth is crucial in developing physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy adults, it’s just as important for parents to take care of their wellness – physically, mentally, and emotionally. Creating a well-balanced life not only keeps us at our best, but it teaches our children the importance of self-care. In this episode of The Weekly Pause, we learn the importance of balanced wellness – for parents and children. We are joined by Tabatha Marden, Certified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, Social-Emotional Learning Consultant, and Mental Health Advocate, who shares her insights and expertise in the areas of wellness for children and their parents.

Using Your Personal Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace
The human biology contains thousands of emotions – each serving a purpose in your personal and professional life. But how do you survive all the feelings you experience in a day? And what about the emotions brought on by memories of the past or anticipations about the future? The main force in managing your emotions and gaining the ability to accept both pleasant and unpleasant emotions as information to make better life decisions, is (as you probably know by now) Emotional Intelligence. Listen as Brian Grossguth, a Corporate “Continuous Improvement Manager”, describes his life changing experience with Social and Emotional Intelligence (SEI). Brian also discusses how SEI affected his life and his work, to the point even his family and co-workers noticed a difference in him. Now, he is dedicated to bringing SEI skills to others in the workplace through his speaking engagements and through projects that drive continuous improvement and optimize success skills at all levels of business.

Your Words. My Choice!
Each of us has encountered times in our lives when we embarked on a journey that we believed in, yet, heard that voice in our head, our ego, telling us that there is no way we can accomplish our goal. Adding to that inner voice, there could be other external voices, adding fuel to the fire we have created by not having faith in us, telling us only what can go wrong or just viewing our thoughts in a completely negative way. These external voices can come from a person that we know, trust and look to for approval, acknowledgement and encouragement. Perhaps they don't mean it and are projecting their own perspective on you. Damaging none the less. Remember, in the words of our guest, Bobbi Kahler, we can choose with whom we speak. Some of you may have heard of Bobbi, the author of "Travels of the Heart: Developing Your Inner Leader" and contributing author of the Amazon and NY Times best selling book, "Masters of Success". Or maybe, you have listened to Bobbi's amazing podcast series, UnYielded: Thriving No Matter What. Paige and I are privileged to welcome her as our guest today. Join us and get a tidbit of how Bobbi has evolved in her journey to thrive and can contribute to your journey as well.

Create Your Own "Happy"
Given all of the challenges life tends to bring, it can be difficult to see the blessings in some situations. And that is normal since our brains are "trained" to perceive and protect us from danger. But more times than not, what our brains perceive as danger may not be danger, but rather a challenge - a challenge which may be overcome through perseverance and realistic positivity, both of which are OUR CHOICE. Realistic positivity is "seeing an opportunity rather than a threat", and this emotional intelligence skill can be learned. Earl Brooks, a telecommunication professional, has not only learned this skill through his life experiences, but he also teaches it to his sons (and others) through his gracious attitude and positive outlook. Learn how you, too, can develop a positive attitude and begin brightening your world!

Becoming “The Other Kind of Smart”
One of the things that bonds us all in our humanness, is our emotions. And we mainly learn about our emotions, and the boundaries others set for our emotions, from our parents, teachers, and other influential adults during our childhood years. But what if you didn’t learn about managing your emotions when you were young? What if you just found out about Emotional Intelligence (EQ)? The great blessing of life is that you can always learn! You can learn the concepts and skills of EQ at any point along your journey, and at any point, you can help others along in their EQ journey. Listen as we speak with Harvey Deutschendorf, author of “The Other Kind of Smart”, TEDx Speaker, and writer for FAST COMPANY, as well as the author of a monthly column with HRPROFESSIONALS MAGAZINE, about his journey from childhood adversity to “The E.I. Guy”. Harvey also shares about the Mankind Project, a safe and welcoming space for men, where they can join in discussions about, among other things, their emotions. You can learn more about Harvey and contact him on his website: https://www.theotherkindofsmart.com/. And you can also learn more about the Mankind Project here: https://mankindproject.org/.

Decorating for Your Emotional Wellbeing

But did you know that the interior design of our home can further affect our emotions and mood?

Join us as we talk with Diana Hall of Interiors by Diana about the ways the interior of our home and office can affect us emotionally, and as she provides tips on how to create a space you’ll love!

Become an Emotion Scientist
How often do you judge yourself for feeling a certain emotion? When you were growing up, were you allowed to have a range of emotions or were you told which emotions were acceptable and to “get over” the other ones? Emotions are a part of our being, they are neither good nor bad, and they all serve a purpose in our human evolution and survival, and in our own personal growth. One way to use the power of their purpose is to be curious about the emotion and why you may be experiencing it. In this episode of The Weekly Pause, we talk with Marc Brackett, Ph.D. about what he defines as an “Emotion Scientist”. Dr. Brackett, director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and author of “Permission to Feel”, discusses being curious about our emotions, the importance of emotional intelligence at any age, and how teaching social and emotional skills to our children can help change the world.

Confidence, Compassion, and Control
Preparing for the day can help it run more smoothly; however, sometimes unexpected things happen which require us to move out of our comfort zone and make moment-to-moment decisions. But by looking to your purpose and using your cognitive thinking skills, you may be able to make better decisions. This can be very difficult when emotions are carrying high energy, and even more difficult when the situation presents potential dangers. Such was the case when an armed man entered Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy on August 20, 2013. Listen as we talk with Antoinette Tuff, the school’s bookkeeper, and learn how she used her confidence, compassion, and control to negotiate with the gunman, saving the lives of over 870 people.

The Role of Emotional Intelligence in Emotional Healing
Grief and sorrow from trauma are emotions that, while perhaps unpleasant to experience, can serve a powerful purpose. They can provide a way for us to express how we feel about a loss or provide a signal for us to seek out support and comfort. There are differing levels of grief and sorrow, and sometimes things happen that are out of our control, which cause tremendous levels of these emotions. But through them, we can learn to heal. Listen as we speak with Scarlett Lewis, founder of Choose Love Movement, as she describes her healing process - from the loss of her son, Jesse, in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut to creating an inspiring and impactful social and emotional learning program to help others heal through their pain and learn to understand and manage their emotions.
