About Rachael Ross

I work as a leadership and development coach with leaders and their organisations in the private and public sectors. Past clients include:  BP, Deloitte, Enterprise Holdings, Equality Challenge Unit, Crisis, Coastline Housing, Tate & Lyle, Marlborough College, ExxonMobil, Durham University, National Grid, the Government Planning Inspectorate, Cambridge University, and the Crown Estate.

I am a member of the International Coach Federation and the Association for Coaching, and I am a graduate of an ICF accredited coach training programme with Coaching Development in the UK. I am a Master Practitioner in NLP, and I enjoy regular coaching supervision.

I have an MA in Modern Languages from Cambridge University, and have lived and worked in Austria, France, and Germany.

My working life began with Esso UK in the early 1980s, where I joined as an HR graduate working in recruitment, industrial relations, leadership development and diversity.

In 1989, I joined the Coverdale organisation as a coach and change consultant where I was accredited as a team coach. As an experience early on in my career, it was a fantastic introduction to the art and science of coaching.

Also in 1989, I co-founded the diversity and inclusion practice Schneider~Ross, and I continue as a Director, specialising in coaching on inclusive leadership. I founded my leadership coaching practice in 2006.

I am a published writer and have written extensively on leadership and diversity. I live in Wiltshire, UK with my family.
