Rachel Kagay | Filtering My World Through Themes TA042
Rachel Kagay is a passionate advocate of strengths-based development and became one of the first Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches in Iowa in February 2015.
First exposed to Gallup’s strengths work in 2006, Rachel was drawn to the positive psychology approach to life and work. Rachel engages with individuals, managers, and teams to discover and maximize their God-given, natural potential through strengths-based development principles. She works to assist others in intentionally leveraging their natural talents and strengths daily to reach personal and professional success.
Rachel believes strongly that people learn best through a process of self-reflection and evaluation, increased self-awareness, and experiential learning. She works enthusiastically to make her coaching sessions engaging, relevant, and applicable. Rachel works with clients in one-on-one settings, as well as through workshops, seminars and retreats. Creating engaging content customized to meet each client’s unique needs and performance goals is of utmost importance.
Rachel coaches through her position as Leadership Development Manager at the FFA Enrichment Center located in Ankeny, Iowa. She has experience working with a wide variety of clients and fields – from agribusiness to health care to youth organizations. Additionally, Rachel’s experience includes coaching both for profit and non-profit entities. She is passionate about agriculture, education, and faith-based fields. In addition to Strengths Coaching, Rachel offers other leadership development, team-building, and facilitation services.
Rachel completed her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Agricultural Education from the University of Missouri in 2010 and 2012, respectively.
