Rebecca-Monique Williams: Business and Personal Coach
Before recently embarking on a new professional venture as a Business and Personal Coach, Rebecca-Monique acquired over ten years of PeopleOps experience – in stand-alone roles and leading small teams in VC-backed tech start-ups – where she built out and scaled People functions from scratch to support plans for hyper growth.
During her career as a People leader she was responsible for collaboratively designing, implementing and iterating holistic people-first processes, frameworks, guides and experiences spanning the entire employee lifecycle; including hiring, onboarding, and the growth & development of individuals and teams.
Following weeks of introspection, Rebecca-Monique discovered that her role left her a few too many steps removed from fulfilling her professional purpose of directly enabling individuals to actualise their unique potential, so she decided to pursue coaching in a full-time capacity.
Rebecca-Monique delivers training and services to businesses that champion and foster the benefits a coaching organisation.
She also coaches private clients in areas such as enhancing emotional intelligence, building confidence, and overcoming grief.
“I am me, and you are you; respectively, that is our superpower….In order to truly coach, we must hold individuals with ‘unconditional positive regard’, listen to understand, and ask generative questions to unlock new thinking. There’s a saying that if you want to explore anything in life, one must first look to the origin. I’m curious about people’s values, needs, and motivations and wants; the stuff at the core, but sometimes beneath the surface. I provide that psychologically safe space for individuals to bring their authentic selves, and together we can explore a plethora of possibilities. It’s my hope that after every interaction, they develop a greater sense of mobility to tackle their personal and professional challenges head on, and see those challenges not as problems, but as puzzles.”
