Dr. Rachel Morris
The Shapes Toolkit was founded by Dr Rachel Morris, a GP with 15 years of seeing patients who were ill because of workplace stress. She decided to do something about it.
Rachel taught General Practice at the University of Cambridge for several years before setting up and leading the ‘Doctor as Professional’ course. This got her interested in the leadership behaviour of professionals in high stress jobs and so she trained as an Executive and Team coach. Rachel founded Wild Monday and developed the Shapes Toolkit. She regularly lectures and delivers training around the country on wellbeing at work, resilience and productivity and is also a presenter for the Red Whale Lead. Manage. Thrive! Course for GPs. She is also on faculty for the PGCert in Medical Education at the University of Cambridge.
Rachel works with a team of experienced associates to deliver authentic and relevant coaching and training focussing on changing behaviour. Unlike other companies who overwhelm with theory and concentrate on just one aspect of resilience alone, Wild Monday’s training focuses on making work a good place to be, as well as helping people to live well and respond to things in a resilient manner.
