Cathy Smalley Pales, Ed.D. is the owner of Take a Breath Coaching, LLC. Take a Breath Coaching works primarily with high-achieving women to develop better leadership presence and behaviors through learning how to thrive instead of just survive.
Leadership presence is an internal state; one that is calm, emotionally centered, energized and fully aware. Too many professionals find themselves just surviving day to day rather than thriving. Take a Breath Coaching helps clients learn to thrive so that they can learn to lead.
Our central focus is providing the space for professionals to discover their authentic leadership presence and potential.
Dr. Pales’ particular areas of interest include: work/life integration, energy management, the affect of wellness on leadership behaviors, developing professional and personal well-being, mindfulness and employee engagement.
