Rachel Berdan is a sustainable growth coach, meeting leaders where they are to facilitate sustainable, equity-centred personal, organization, and systems transformation.
Transformation, relationships, and storytelling are at the heart of Rachel’s work. As an intrapreneur throughout much of her career, Rachel can see the opportunity in barriers to change and brings her facilitation skills to help leaders, teams, and community groups move toward organizational and systems change through both individual reflection and collective visioning toward action.
Having navigated significant changes in leadership and hard organizational pivots, Rachel has developed the capacity to not only bring clarity and stability during internal transformation, but also to spark innovation and collaboration in service of shifting systems. Rachel has a capacity to meet people where they are, listen deeply, and reflect back the essence of what people are experiencing and trying to say, which is effective in both her leadership coaching and communications (ghostwriting, copy editing) services.
Rachel holds an MA in Global Leadership from Royal Roads University. Rachel believes that leadership is a verb—not a noun and not a title—and continues to engage in reflective practice in her work and personal growth, focusing on anti-racism, decolonization, power, and relational ways of being.
