It is a real pleasure to be coached by Rachael from Pursuit. Rachael 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.
I found that touching base on a regular basis with Rachael is an excellent way to critically examine oneself as she helps me identify, frame and clarify key development objectives and offers practical tools and techniques to achieve them and come back with a fresh perspective.
The coaching also 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.
Working towards a senior promotion is a challenging time, having Rachael supporting and nudging me along gave me the confidence that was already there but helped me bring out both on paper and in my promotion interview.
Rachael challenged me to ensure I pulled out the best examples and articulate myself well. Most important for me was learning to talk un-self-consciously about myself and my examples. Rachael worked with me to ensure I put myself forward in the best light, confidently.
Rachel is an excellent professional coach, she is flexible in the moment, and facilitates creativity while maintaining a focus on the overall goal.
I would strongly recommend Rachel as a coach. Her natural ability to create a very relaxed and flexible coaching environment, while encouraging focus, accountability & forward movement is outstanding.
Throughout our discussions, Rachael helped me to identify clear and well-defined actions to help me on the way to achieving my goals. While Rachael always held me accountable she was supportive when blockages came up that meant I didn’t always progress my actions as far as I had committed to. She seemed to sense when I was holding back and kept pressing to ensure that I challenged myself and set more clearly defined actions.
I found the sessions were very enjoyable and encouraged me to really think more deeply about the goals I had set out to work through.
Rachael’s style is warm and direct. She builds trust and rapport very quickly and has a lovely manner that puts you immediately at ease.

“Rachael’s ever-encouraging manner has enabled me to have faith in my capabilities and hope that I can always reach the goals that I set my mind to.
