Every career is like a journey - there are high points to celebrate and low points, with obstacles to overcome.
Working with a coach is a great, low-stakes way to explore and experiment with different ideas for your career based challenges.
Every coaching session is an opportunity to discover more about yourself.
You and your situation are unique. You need someone who'll listen to the details and support you to come up with strategies that work for you.
Your coach keeps you accountable to giving your career the time and attention it deserves.

Product & Program Geeks

Organizations are expecting more and more from their Product & Program Managers.
We'll utilize product management tools, skills and models; framing your career itself as a product.
"Engineering is achieving function while avoiding failure"
You need time to reflect. Not everything can be learned just-in-time or on-the-job.
The mixture of hard and soft skills that would most allow you to scale your impact is often de-emphasized by your day-to-day reality.
We'll help you carve out that mental space and explore the most challenging and essential aspects of your growth.
"Customers will never love a company until the employees love it first"
Your work in building healthy cultures and great work experiences is more important than ever before.
Your teams need to embrace design-thinking and product management approaches so that they can put their customers at the heart of what they do.
We'll ensure that you can listen more deeply, empathize more, iterate faster and build strong relationships with your customers.
Our clients get results they want to talk about...
After a rather difficult change management situation I found myself lacking confidence and seeking a new position. I was feeling overwhelmed but Rachel showed me how to apply structure and focus to my process. Her perspective and coaching reassured me about my wants, needs, goals and skills. In addition, she helped me prepare for the very much dreaded behavioral interview questions. Now I have secured a new position and hope to work with Rachel on my 30-60-90 day plan!
Andrea - Product Manager
A wonderful coach and mentor. As a recent graduate, I was overwhelmed with starting my job search and anxious about reaching out to potential connections. She helped to connect me with industry professionals, aid my assessment of career options, and answered hundreds of my questions. She has dramatically helped to increase my confidence and grow my network. She has been one of the most approachable and supportive persons in my professional journey so far. If you are looking for a coach or mentor, I highly recommend working with Rachel.
Sara - Boeing Engineering
Rachel was my executive coach for a critical career transformation time. I really appreciated her quick and insightful insights into my pivots as I encountered them, and her availability across multiple communication methods. She uses a holistic and long term thinking approach. I definitely recommend her.
Miriam - Product Leader
You are very perceptive and a great listener. You ask powerful questions that help everyone around you to understand and align. You coach me in ways that feel supportive and make me feel like you are truly invested in my success and the team's success. You hold people accountable and call out bullshit in a way that means nobody feels bad.
