Rachel is a Personal Performance and Executive Coach with a background in Project Management, Business Analysis, Process and SAP Consultancy. Having worked for many years for the British Council – a cultural relations agency – in the UK and Poland she realised she really enjoyed seeing people tap into who they are, excel in using their strengths and gifts, and go on to make the difference they were born to make. After working as an internal coach and supporting clients with their career and life transitions she set up in business to help people do just that.
Rachel has spent a lot of her working life collaborating with, and supporting, people from varied backgrounds – and she enjoys the richness and the variety that this brings. She seriously loves partnering with people to find out more about who they are and what they can bring – and helps them connect their inner and their outer selves for greater enjoyment, effectiveness, and impact. She enjoys holding thinking sessions with senior leaders – providing a supportive generative space where the best ideas come to light and are applied for improved results. She thrives on working with teams and groups – to help them build mutual trust; develop better understanding of each other’s perspectives; agree a common brief – and go onto deliver projects and events they both enjoy and are proud of.
She specialises in coaching purpose and identity; legacy; working in International teams for the first time; moving to live and work overseas – and making the transition back again; listening and EQ; Career exploration and transition.
She believes that being easeful about what we do, identifying and harnessing our strengths and opportunities, we will do our best work. She is able to draw on a number of different approaches, to meet the needs of the client.
In her spare time Rachel is inspired by the great outdoors, light, space, colour and good design. She loves visiting art galleries and finds this renews perspective every time.
