About Rach SebellShavit

“From the start of working with Rach, I knew her coaching would serve as a great benefit for my personal and professional development. It felt like a weight lifted off of my shoulders; I was able to recognize my imposter syndrome in tandem with daily systemic inequities, including racism, microaggressions, toxic masculinity, gender imbalances, and other power dynamics. Until this time, I hadn’t realized my identity construction, was being hindered by others’ perceptions of my intelligence, confidence, determination, and curiosity due to my intersectional identities. Now I can begin to fully embrace my identity as an intelligent and determined strong black woman.”

Christine Armstrong,
Managing Director,
Transformative Culture Project

A business leader, professional development & leadership coach, artist, and parent; I use my expertise in communication, operational strategy, conflict management, and learning design to help my clients overcome the obstacles and gaps that are blocking them from success. How? By helping them unpack their goals and roadblocks so that they can strategize towards creative and empowering solutions. Armed as a ICF-Certified Coach with a BFA degree from Rhode Island School of Design, 20+ years of experience in the non-profit and Boston Tech industries (including 7 years at HubSpot), and an MBA from Babson, I use a blend of creative and analytical approaches to provide coaching programs that are customize to every client’s unique needs and styles. My clients include:

  • Executives
  • New & Experienced Managers
  • Emerging Leaders
  • Women Leaders
  • Queer Leaders
  • Leaders of Color
  • Working Parents
  • Individuals Looking To Grow
  • Career Transitioners

Through our coaching conversations, my clients get unblocked as they start developing new ways of thinking, strategizing, and communicating. By  developing new strategies that embrace their strengths and weaknesses, my clients are able to leverage their skills and adapt in the areas that are holding them back enabling them to get on a path to thrive. Key areas that I support my clients in are:

  • Setting Stronger Goals
  • Embracing Confidence
  • Growing Emotional Intelligence
  • Improving Time Management and Organization Skills
  • Managing Stress & Building Resilience
  • Mastering Stronger Communication & Interpersonal Skills
  • Navigating Conflict & Managing Difficult Conversations
  • Overcoming Parent Work/Life Imbalance

I have had the privilege of leading and coaching diverse teams in Customer Success, Learning & Development, Sales Enablement, Operations, Marketing, and Fundraising. I have coached hundreds of clients to develop new skills and reach greater levels of confidence by coaching them to discover their goals, pinpoint their obstacles, confront their failures, adapt to change, and embrace their whole-self.

But this is what I’ve done, it isn’t my story. My story is one of pivots, stumbles, bruises, and wins. I’ve landed dream jobs and been let go by surprise. I’ve succeeded and failed as a manager, in some roles struggling to be embraced as a new manager to a preexisting team and in others thriving as both a trusted leader and mentoring coach. I’ve walked the journey of living in the closet, coming out to my colleagues, becoming a new parent, and balancing an executive job with a young child. In each of these journeys, I’ve had to overcome adversity and obstacles, adapt, embrace change, and partner with others to thrive in new and uncharted territories.

My mission is to help individuals like you overcome every obstacle in your path so that you can thrive! Let’s do this together!
