Trust is both the foundation and the result of a strong culture. But, with hybrid work here to stay, it has never been more challenging to keep individuals and teams connected, engaged, and aligned with company values. Rachel is helping leaders navigate shifting power dynamics and employee expectations through the lens of trust.

Leading through uncertainty is a skill set and mindset many leaders need to develop. It requires rethinking the capabilities and character of a ‘strong’ and ‘confident’ leader. Rachel has been researching and teaching related themes on the connection between trust and doubthumility and ‘why comfortable cultures are a bad idea.’
