Disrupting Divorce: Conversations for Women

Feb 12, 2021

In this episode Rhonda talks to Paula Rauenbuehler, an International Coaching Federation Certified Associate Coach, about Emotional intelligence.

Paula shared about emotional intelligence assessment, self-awareness, mindset and dealing with emotions in a stressful situation, such as divorce. Emotional intelligence assessment is behavioral in nature – it is about where are you right now, where do you want to go, and what behaviors are needed in order for you to get there. Here are some of her recommendations:

  1. Self-awareness is about finding out what is behind the emotion, what caused the reaction. Take time to see what’s really going on.
  2. Any life changing experience is emotional and stressful. When in stress, we are in fear-based mindset. Ask yourself – what else might be going on here.
  3. It is important for people to use the mindset and awareness to make some decisions and do some discerning of who are they now and who they want to be after all of this.

Our guest today was Paula Rauenbuehler. Paula is an International Coaching Federation Certified Associate Coach. Using her experiences as a Human Resources Director in the corporate sector along with degrees in psychology and business administration, she is uniquely prepared to assist companies in strengthening their succession plan, improve engagement and retention of top performers impacting both the top and bottom line.

As a certified leadership coach, Paula recognizes the capability gaps happening across teams big and small. She's not afraid to address the elephant in the room. Working with an organization’s leaders, she creates a plan that uses neuroscience (or a brain-based approach) and the organization’s real day-to-day work. I call on interactive exercises, brainstorming and feedback to create an environment ready to set priorities, breakdown barriers, and achieve success beyond expectations.

Paula guides organizations from the inside out using the KickStart Your Edge Model. Knowing that it all starts with the individual. From the individual, to teams, leaders, and the business itself, she focuses on the driving forces—The Thing Behind The Thing—that keeps organizations from achieving their best results.
