"Try It" - The Scientific Leadership Newsletter


This newsletter is for leaders and emerging leaders who want to learn and grow through practical advice.

It's particularly applicable to those who have a scientific or technical background which - even if you haven't been in the lab for years! - still shapes how you see the world.

I’m Rachel Kindt, PhD, former biotech executive, now leadership coach and writer.  My intention for the newsletter is to share the same type of guidance that I provide to my coaching clients.

Every two weeks, you will receive new insights and practice to:

  • Hone your leadership self-awareness

  • Enhance how you navigate through your work environment

  • As as result, you can be in the world more fully and take action more effectively.

I’m super practical, and will always boil down the topic and the "why" of the topic into something tangible you can try in the following weeks. These “assignments” don't take any real time; they can be done in the background of your usual day.

And by trying - experimenting - you will be learning about yourself and developing new leadership “muscles."

Try it today!
