In this episode, Kevin discusses harnessing the life-changing power of giving yourself a break with guest, Rachael O'Meara. Rachael is an executive at Google and a transformational leadership coach. According to Rachael, a pause is “any intentional shift in behavior that allows you the space to experience a mental shift in attitude, thoughts, or emotions that otherwise would not have occurred.” You’re stressed out at your job; you’re torn between work and family; your motivation and productivity are taking a nosedive. Your impulse might be to lean in and tough it out, but what you may really need to do is take a step back. Her new book is PAUSE: Harnessing the Life-Changing Power of Giving Yourself a Break.
