Group coaching is a facilitated process where the group has a common theme, but individuals set their personal goals. One of the many benefits is the opportunity to leverage the experience of the entire group. In a cohort setting you will explore a range of leadership concepts, while maintaining focus on your goals and how your learnings can be put into practical, action-oriented application.
This group experience is a cost-effective way to learn more about yourself, your strengths, and opportunities, and to identify what values you want to invest in, to optimize your impact as a leader. Group coaching is not training. The learning and personal development is enriched from sharing experiences amongst the group, and reflection about your opportunities in alternative ways. Each session has a defined topic. As your coach, I will bring you relevant topics, introduce concepts or alternative ways of thinking, and facilitate dialogue and learning amongst the group. Some topics may lend themselves to an activity, where others are more didactic in nature, but for all sessions, the majority of time will be lent to self-exploration and discussion.
“I recently attended Rachael’s group coaching sessions and it was the best professional development experience of my career. She helped me so much in identifying the kind of leader I want to be and provided concrete exercises to develop the skills to support my vision. Rachael is an extremely gifted coach I can’t recommend her highly enough.” ~ Practice Leader, Health Plan

What to expect with group coaching
As with any coaching, we will be ‘taking action’ on each topic. You will be thinking about your role, your team, what areas or goals you have for these topics to take a specific action to improve on your personal leadership journey.
Prior to the start of the group I will have a 30 minute 1:1 conversation with each group member to learn about participants and their goals. *Topics may vary depending on the goals of those in the group. It will be a group decision.
One additional 30-minute private coaching session is included. This session is conducted any time during the program or up to 2 months following the completion of the program. Program costs include the assessment and associated materials. Approximately a $215 value per program.
Additional 30-minute coaching sessions are discounted for those participating in group coaching.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rachael in a number of different capacities– in her group coaching, as an advisor, and as a 1:1 coach. She has really transformed the way I view leadership and corporate relationships. She has helped me navigate situations in a professional manner that feels authentic and aligned with my personal values. Rachael’s knowledge has helped me be more intentional about my leadership style, what I’m dedicating my attention to, and how to express gratitude to myself and others. I’ve seen tremendous growth throughout my time working with her, and I plan to continue using her as a thought partner.”
