Rachel Woods has spent 15 years in the leadership development industry empowering leaders with practical leadership skills. She is a leadership author, trainer, consultant, and coach, who is passionate about helping people reach their fullest potential. In 2005, she founded Leadership Trek Corp., otherwise known as “LTrek”, through which she has trained and consulted leaders world-wide. The mission of LTrek is to inspire, challenge, and equip leaders to achieve great heights.
Early in Rachel’s career as an Attorney-Mediator, Rachel served as a Mediator and began to train and consult business leaders in the area of conflict management. This led to an invitation to teach conflict management and negotiation at the Baylor Business School in 2006.
Today, LTrek not only provides practical training about conflict management and negotiation, but also how to motivate yourself and others, how to manage teams, how to delegate effectively and much more! In 2013, together with Dr. Mitchell Neubert, Ph.D., Rachel authored Leadership Trek, an on-the-job leadership transformation system. Leadership Trek is based on the idea that true leadership transformation is a journey or “trek,” not an event. Today, leaders all over the world have utilized the Leadership Trek transformation system.
After 15 years immersed in the leadership development industry, Rachel enjoys serving as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor, and teaches the core management class, called Leadership and Organizational Behavior.
She earned a Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s University School of Law, where she also trained to be a Mediator.
