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.
