“It’s in the Pause”® is Valerie’s cornerstone concept showing us how we can all discover, practice and grow our Emotional Intelligence in the space where she believes Emotional Intelligence happens: The Pause.

Emotional Intelligence is defined as, “Your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships.” (per Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Bradberry/Greaves)

We pause to have Self-Awareness. We pause to have Self-Management. We pause for Social Awareness. And we pause for Relationship Management. There are so many valuable moments and lessons we experience in the beauty of a pause. This belief and this blog were created to highlight and share those moments that matter … moments that change lives.

We hope you will join us in the pause and become a regular subscriber.
