Rachel knows how to get things done. She has been in the trenches, dealing with unspoken conversations, barriers to team goals and success, and figuring out how to achieve seemingly impossible goals demanded by executive leadership (and now SHE's one of THOSE executives!). As she rose through the ranks at a global satellite mission (from intern to satellite scientist to Operational Science Officer), she managed big projects, united diverse stakeholders, guided teams through change, and led complex and ground-breaking achievements.
She believes the internal experience (iX) of an organization is a leadership choice. Whether a leader dials it in or actively designed and supports it, the iX of a company is critical to nearly all measures of success - profit, employee retention, customer satisfaction, and on and on. The hallmark of business today is constant change, which is highly uncomfortable to a large number of our people.
Partnering with Meg Manke at the Rose Group Int'l, they developed the critical, new (and practical) iX leadership framework which allows you to actually solve problems in your team, address generational issues, guide people through big changes, and accomplish your most ambitious goals.
Rachel is a TEDx speaker and has spoken on stage in front of over 12,000 people (https://youtu.be/dEe4dQcwuCQ).
She is also a Forbes Coaches Council contributor, and serves on the Council of Trustees for South Dakota State University. She is a Mensa PhD scientist, a certified Project Management Professional, a global citizen, a choral singer, and an art patroness.
