My Workshops

Are grounded in praxis (theory & practice) + my blindspot framework and the power of C’s of intentional leadership

Due to COVID-19, Rachel is offering virtual workshops in place of the in-person workshops. View the information below and inquire for more information. We will keep you updated as we have more information about COVID-19.

I believe in co-constructing, collaborating, and offering customized experiences that align with the needs of the community I’m serving. Because potential clients like to get a sense of the types of engagements I offer, here is a sampling of some of the most commonly requested packages.

LEADING WITH CLARITY + CONGRUENCE (learn about the power of high-performance-habits + develop a theory of action aligned with your core values + get grounded in your WHY/ core values/ vision with intentionality)

COMMUNITY-BUILDING (prepare for an upcoming meeting/event with intentionality + strengthen facilitative leadership competencies + learn about the stages of team development)

CHANGE-MANAGEMENT (we learn about phases of transitions, learn about adaptive leadership approaches + draft your change management strategy)

COMMUNICATING WITH CONSCIOUSNESS (learn about unconscious bias, explore common pitfalls in conversations about race/equity, and plan for an upcoming conversation with intentionality)

CONFLICT-MANAGEMENT (increase comfort with conflict, discomfort and tension)

Participants

  • Reflect on how their identity impacts how people experience them
  • Walk away with increased clarity on their blindspots
  • Reflect on their own authentic S.P.A.R.K. stance
  • Reflect on what will be required to take this work to the next level
  • Identify a focus area to strengthen and work on

Here are some others in-person workshops I’ve facilitated (in addition what’s above):

UNCOVER YOUR BLINDSPOTS AND IMPROVE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY/RESULTS (learn latest brain science about how bias impacts performance/results, identify unconscious patterns that need to be interrupted, and set intentions/priorities using the S.P.A.R.K. Diversity / Equity / Inclusion framework)

LET’S TALK ABOUT INTERSECTIONALITY: UNPACKING YOUR BACKPACK (learn research on intersectionality + reflect on the layers of your identity + increase comfort and confidence talking about the intersections of your identity)

LEAD FROM YOUR SCARS, NOT YOUR WOUNDS: LET’S TALK ABOUT WHAT’S BEYOND THE #METOO HASHTAG (unpack your #metoo backpack and experience a healing process that involves breaking down, breaking open, breaking through, and breaking free)
