Supporting you to achieve excellence

Because your people are your best resource, investing in their development is the key to achieve excellence. From my 15-year career at PwC, one of my specialisms is coaching people from professional services, especially accounting & advisory firms. I can support you in unlocking your amazing talent to enhance leadership skills, get ready for a promotion, improve client relationships, increase employee engagement, strengthen team collaboration and optimise performance.

  • leveraging the value they bring to the firm
  • getting ready for partner or director promotion process
  • developing an area of the with a compelling vision for success
  • working as one firm (rather than silos)

Feedback from clients:

I really enjoyed my coaching with Rachael. She made me feel calm, listened to and safe during our coaching, which put me in a good space for thinking and being open to challenge.

Rachael is a true professional, extremely personable and easy to work with.

Rachael takes time to ensure that she fully understands what you are looking for from coaching, this is useful as it means you are both confident you can work together and will get results you are looking for.

She has a wealth of experience in coaching and can relate conversations back to the real-world workplace. I found it to be really beneficial as it wasn’t all based on theory or textbook methods but actually thinking how skills/tips and tools can be used in the real world.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rachael and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.

It is a real pleasure to be coached by Rachael. She helped me set both short and long term goals for myself, focusing on Leadership. The coaching sessions are thought-provoking, the coaching is very practical and has had a positive impact on a number of aspects of my role.

The coaching came into play in discussions I had with my team, peers and senior leaders. I find the coaching really beneficial and it has renewed my focus on what I want to achieve in the future.

Rachael’s knowledge and level of professionalism are outstanding and really help me make a difference.

Rachael helped me address the issues holding me back in relation to my personal growth.
We worked together to compile strategies that I can apply in my professional setting, and already have seen a difference in the way I think and reflect on certain situations.
Highly recommend Pursuit Coaching if you want to assess your leadership attributes and evolve your style to become the leader you want to be.
