Catalyzing change, creating meaning.
Ricki Frankel spends her time as an Executive Coach and Consultant in private practice, and teaching coaching and leadership to MBA students at Lecturer at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business (GSB). An expert in transitions and a catalyst for change and transformation, she has spent the last 20 years helping people create meaning and engagement in their work and their lives. She works with individuals and organizations as they navigate through transitions. Her typical clients are senior professionals and entrepreneurs who have achieved a level of success, and are now seeking “more”: more meaningful engagement, more impact, more business, more purpose – even more fun! Her coaching style combines well-honed professional coaching skills with sharp insight, organizational experience, intuition, compassion and laughter. She is passionate about helping others make “work work” for themselves and the people who work for them. While the work is serious, she believes it should also be serious fun.
In her role as Lecturer and Coach at the GSB, Ricki facilitates MBA and MSx students’ learning in leadership, interpersonal dynamics, organizational power and influence, and management coaching skills. She teaches the Arbuckle Leadership Fellows program, Leadership Labs (a required course for first year MBA students), and Leadership Coaching. In addition, she has worked with the Interpersonal Dynamics (aka “touchy feely) and Paths to Power classes.
