Rachel’s New Programs for University Students & Administrators
Rachel is now leading interactive, skill-based workshops for undergraduate students and administrators. Programs include:
- Leadership for Rebels: A Recipe for Courage and Personal Authority – Participants examine how the pressure young women face to be “Good Girls” – unerringly nice, polite, modest and selfless – limits the development of a set of skills necessary to reach one’s personal and professional potential. In this workshop, participants develop their “inner resume:” skills to help them connect and act on their most important thoughts and feelings; advocate for themselves in their most important relationships; and explore their relationship to apology and blame.
- Residence Life Workshops – Professional and student residence life staff identify communication challenges for young women in college housing, apply new communication skills to these conversations, and set goals for effective problem solving.
- Athletics – Coaches and team leaders explore communication patterns on women’s sports teams, including whether or not each participant tends to be avoidant, aggressive or assertive in the face of conflict related to her team. Participants learn and practice new communication skills, especially those associated with emotional self-awareness and expression; “owning up” or taking personal responsibility; and assertive self-expression.
