Rachel Goldstein


Rachel Goldstein brings 20 years of experience helping clients develop and grow in her coaching work.  She started coaching at Harvard Business School in 2002 where she worked as a career coach in the Office of Career and Professional Development and currently works there in Executive Education as an executive coach, helping mid-career professionals with their personal and professional development needs.


Rachel has broad industry experience from her work in finance (Lehman Brothers and Fidelity Investments) and at The Boston Consulting Group, where she focused on organization development and change management in the healthcare, entertainment, and tech sectors.  Most recently she managed BCG’s Learning and Development distance learning initiative for its 14,000 employees and 80 offices worldwide.  As an independent non-profit consultant, she has helped clients through complex mergers, process facilitation, and change management. Rachel has a deep understanding of global leadership. Over her career, she has had the opportunity to lead teams in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

She is able to bring that experience to her coaching work, helping clients reach their potential, and supporting their teams to achieve their vision.


Rachel combines her experience in strategy coaching, leadership development, and personal development to support both individuals and organizations. She developed her strategic coaching I.D.E.A. framework that supports clients in both the planning and implementation of change initiatives (helping them identify their goals, mobilize for change, create options, and effectively execute their plans).


Additionally, Rachel has a deep interest in the science of well-being. She works individually with clients to identify their values, conduct self-inquiry and self-exploration, and recognize entrenched patterns that have been holding them back. By using systematic methods and theories of neuroscience, she is able to help clients attain enduring adaptive change.
