Revolutionize Your Influence From The Inside Out

Authentically influence others, and become the respected, sought-after leader you know you can be—while maintaining your highest values and integrity.

You are excellent at what you do, and passionate about the results you deliver. The more senior your role, the more you are required to influence and persuade cross-functional partners and direct reports. Your role includes gaining buy-in, engaging and motivating team members across the company, and building strategic and collaborative partnerships. You must manage up as well as down the organizational ladder.

At this level, your ability to influence others can make the difference between success and failure.

And you may be finding it more difficult than ever to lead effectively; stakeholders don’t prioritize your needs, the CEO doesn’t understand the value you offer, your team and colleagues aren’t yet bought in.

At MettaWorks, we find that issues of influence fall into two distinct categories; really, they are two sides of the same coin. Though some of us may sit in varying ends of the spectrum, it’s all the same spectrum.  Do either of these situations sound familiar?

?

The Leader Who
Wants to Be Heard

  • Palms sweating, a pit in your stomach, you walk into the conference room or log into the virtual meeting.

  • Your CEO enters and your mouth goes dry. Your conviction dissolves.

  • Every meeting ends the same way: You walk out feeling like the CEO got his agenda, but you didn’t have a chance to speak. You couldn’t get a word in edgewise.

  • You have no idea how to shift the situation, repair your reputation with your CEO, and (re)instill confidence across the organization.

The Leader Who
Is Misunderstood

  • Your pulse pounds at your temples when you’re told (and not for the first time) that someone’s feelings got hurt, when you were just trying to get stuff done.

  • You worry that you’re missing something because no one comes to you with their concerns or asks for your opinion. 

  • You struggle with a colleague who needs to be your partner. Each exchange with them feels combative, blood rushing hotly to your face as you argue rather than discuss.

  • You feel like you’re starting to lose power over the things you loved—the initiatives you own, your team… and you don’t know how to fix it.

In both cases, the rift grows between where you are and where you want to be. You find yourself feeling angry, impatient, and resentful.The work you love, the organization you’re dedicated to, is now a major source of stress, following you home and keeping you up at night.

But I can’t stop being who I am, you might be thinking.

As a client said so well:

I need to operate in a way that is authentic to me. If I am not authentic it's not going to work. Hiding who I am is very destructive. It takes too much energy, and energy is something that I cannot afford to waste.

The truth is hiding who you are actually gets in the way of effectively influencing people and advancing as a leader— what makes you successful is maintaining your authentic self while shifting how you habitually react.

This requires building a skillset you’ve likely never focused on before. This is exactly what this program is designed to deliver.

Introducing “Next Level Impact”

An innovative program for tech leaders that up-levels your leadership by harnessing the power of influence, cultivating the skills that no one else talks about for exponential results.

I've had the pleasure of partnering with Rachel for more than three years at hypergrowth companies where she is actively helping my team, and I level up how we operate and grow as leaders and work together more effectively. Rachel's work has directly impacted the team's culture, behavior, and performance, ultimately delivering the desired business outcomes.
Shiven Ramji
Chief Product Officer, Auth0
I have worked with Rachel for many years in various capacities and can say she is truly one in a million. She is intensely passionate about what she does and the value she brings to the organizations she works with is beyond impressive. She can take challenging and ambiguous subject matter and turn it into an actionable discussion and learning, based in framework and structure. I see the individual leaders who work with her walking away feeling invested in and empowered to go about their already challenging work lives with more tools and confidence to succeed.
Avigail Dadone
Chief People Officer, Diligent
I have worked with Rachel for a few years now and have a deep appreciation and respect for her work. She has developed a holistic approach to executive coaching to uncover long held patterns that limit and hold us back. This, combined with her pragmatic and practical insights, has helped me grow considerably as a leader, be more effective in my work and continue to realize my possibilities.

The Power of Authentic Influence

Instead of wasting time mediating  disagreements and clarifying misunderstandings, you and your team, partners, and cross-departmental collaborators work cohesively toward a shared vision.

They look to you as a sounding board. All while you maintain who you are at your core. Your values and integrity remain intact, becoming a part of why they respect you as the expert in the room.

You inspire the CEO and leadership team, investors, and the board alike, in support of your ideas. Your colleagues are now energized and motivated to work with you, rather than against you.

You are sought after for your input on the sort of challenges you love to solve.  You are a part of the decision making instead of receiving an update after the fact.

without second-guessing yourselfand without alienating others. As a result you make decisions quicker, you’re less distracted outside of the office and sleep better at night.

Your new leadership style elicits appreciation and respect among your colleagues, and attracts new high-level partners and stakeholders.

You experience less resistance and push-back.

you’re more relaxed, and yes, you’re happier.

You can build your influence from the inside out—authentic and aligned with who you are. And instead of wasting energy on behavior patterns that get you nowhere, you can invest in skills that move you forward, permanently.

What the Program Entails

A specialized program for leaders in tech, this is your safe place to work out the challenges you face at the top of your organization. Here, you can have the conversations you can’t share with your team, the board or organizational partners, and receive guidance and support.

Reveal the type of leader you want to be–not someone else’s vision of leadership but your own–and improve your ability to influence others.

You’ll learn how to expand your influence by understanding the root causes of conflict. We take the mind/body/emotion connection and turn it into your leadership superpower: You will discover how to partner with your nervous system to move toward calm, strength and confidence.

You’ll receive three intensive sessions over three months with a cohort of your peers. With Rachel as your guide, you will step into a new level of effective leadership that starts from the inside out.

Each session includes:

  • Curriculum based in 20+ years’ research, study and practical application, that you can put to immediate use.
  • On-the-spot, targeted coaching.
  • Group discussion and breakout sessions with your peers, focused on the real-life situations you are facing right now.

Our work will be grounded in these 3 modules :

(Click on each to find out more)

September 16, 2-5pm EST

In this module, we define the grassroots foundation of your revolutionary transformation by distilling your core strengths and values. (Key word: your.)

In order to expand your influence and be a more effective leader we need to first clearly define where you are NOW and how you got here.

Then it’s time to start defining what it means to you to be an authentic leader, take an honest look as to whether you’re there yet, and clearly articulate which criteria to activate to close that gap in your leadership.

October 14, 2-5pm EST

In this module, we begin to challenge the old regime. We identify the people and situations that spark unhelpful patterns of behavior within you that keep you stuck as a leader, getting clear on what triggers you.

We’ll take an unflinching look at what’s working, what’s not, and what needs to change. We will identify new behaviors to navigate and neutralize charged situations. You’ll learn and develop concrete tools that you will put to immediate use to help you regulate your nervous system, so you show up calm and even-keeled, even when you feel triggered.

We’ll do this by getting clearer on our own internal responses, understanding our value sets and how others’ conflicting values can impact how we feel about them, and how we show up with them.

November 18, 2-5pm EST

In this module, we integrate your powers of influence, grounded in your authentic identity and leadership, so that you can start stepping in as the leader you envisioned, to drive high-performance results from your team and business.

We will work with your specific situation and identify immediate, applicable ways in which to enhance a relationship, foster buy-in with a stakeholder, and get you walking into meetings with ease instead of anxiety. This is where the rubber hits the road, blending vision and application.

Throughout the program we’ll work together with your strengths, your values, and your goal to uplevel your influence.

 

We’ll look at how you can apply the changes and insights you’ve uncovered, for immediate results. Each module provides concrete tools you’ll implement at once.

Are you ready to revolutionize your influence, from the inside out?

Is This Program Right For You?

This program builds on all of the work you’ve already done with Rachel and will allow you to take your leadership skills to the next level. It can also be hugely beneficial to be part of a small group and connect with other tech leaders who are dealing with similar challenges.

This program is a perfect supplement to 1-on-1 coaching, and the skills you learn here will help you implement the actions you’ve created with your coach.

The benefit of this program is getting to work with a group of your peers to increase your impact as a leader. No previous coaching experience needed. Influencing authentically will actually ease some of your current stressors at work and mitigate your workload, in a similar way that working 1:1 with a coach does, with the added benefit of getting to hear others’ experiences. 

There is a huge benefit to being present in real time and at the same time life can get in the way. Each module will be recorded so that you have access to the session even if you cannot attend in real time.

This is about doing the inner work—changing patterns in the nervous system—so you show up transformed, from the inside out, and leverage your influence for the results you want.

Rachel worked with several members of management in the Engineering team at Squarespace. Our leaders were very impressed with her ability to listen, empathize and diagnose issues as well as provide specific, tangible action items to help address areas of focus. The results of the engagements were so positive that other leaders began requesting to work with her also.

When I was leading the Product Design team at DigitalOcean, Rachel’s coaching was invaluable. It made me a better manager, guided me through some tricky situations, and clarified what I wanted from my career. More recently, she helped me figure out the source of some productivity blockers. You come into a session thinking you have it more or less figured out, but then she asks one perfect question and it changes everything. Rachel isn’t just good, she’s consistently good, so every single session is impactful. I couldn’t recommend her more.

In the short time I worked with Rachel, she was extremely insightful in helping me identify blind spots in my leadership style and how to address them. Working together also enabled me to become a more multi-faceted leader to guide the company in either exponential-growth or crisis mode.
