will be replaced

in the next decade.

Strategic initiatives—even those implemented by experienced leaders—only succeed 31% of the time.

But it’s not a strategy problem—it’s a people problem.

The people in your organization matter.

Alignment between leadership and employees is critical for executing with an edge.

Creating results

that matter

Rachel Richter is a management consultant who bridges the gap between strategy and results.

Understanding the pitfalls that impede organizational evolution, Rachel helps executive leaders realize their agenda to create lasting impact.

Leaders may bring compelling strategies to the table, but what enables executional success is much more nuanced. Internal misalignment is the silent killer of strategic transformation - both organizational and digital.

The tech does not transform itself, people do. Rachel's methodology focuses on the belief that people are an organization's most important asset, and aligning the priorities of the C-Suite and staff is essential for successful evolution.

This is why Rachel's process is both human-centered and backed by rigorous research. Because it takes both EQ and IQ to execute with an edge, and next-level execution is the new normal.
