Rahel starts with the fundamental belief that we can only control and change ourselves. As leaders, our challenge is managing our response to our environment and situation; our opportunity is to enhance our own capacity and the capacity of those on our teams and partners. This begins with getting clear about the area of focus. As the coach, Rahel uses the “development plan” to inform the trusting partnership she creates with the individual she coaches. She asks compelling questions, seeing from top level down to systemic details to reflect back and support the individual(s) she coaches. She has a unique blend of empathy and no-nonsense pragmatism.
