Coaching Testimonials

Rachel has an amazing talent for engaging and engendering trust in both her clients and her colleagues.  She was always my "go to" person in dealing with really difficult team dynamics because of her unfailing fearlessness, skill and knowledge in helping people confront and resolve tough issues while creating an environment of safety and good humour.

“I gave her an A+, which I have to say I can’t remember ever having done before, Rachel dealt with the tsunami that was me on the day, I told her that her centeredness and tensile strength were such that I would not hesitate to put her in front of a senior executive"

“As a coach, Rachel's insightful analysis of situations and the human condition is manifested by her ability to guide her client to solutions and capabilities that they didn't immediately know they already possess!


Rachel uses a thoughtful, collaborative and inclusive approach to her work as a coach, speaker, facilitator and consultant.  Her respectful, results oriented focus helps her clients, co-workers, and colleagues achieve goals”

“Rachel Foster is a professional coach who doesn’t tell you what you want to hear – she tells you what you need to hear.  She is observant, and notices the individual and group dynamics of the team with which she is working.  Rachel’s style makes you feel safe, but she also holds you accountable for your choices and the results of those choices”.
