Meet your host Dr Rachel Morris

You Are Not A Frog is hosted by Dr Rachel Morris, a GP turned Executive Coach and Trainer who wanted to find a way to interview really interesting people and pretend that she was working.

Rachel has been on her own career journey (girl likes science, girl does science A levels, girl also likes people so girl studies medicine, girl does GP but wonders if there’s more out there…) and knows what it’s like to feel trapped in a job you have studied long and hard for but makes you feel stressed and unhappy. She believes that you don’t need to dramatically change careers to thrive in your 9-5 (or 8-8) but there are simple things you can do and changes you can make that will make a HUGE amount of difference.

Rachel now specialises in resilience in the workplace for professionals in high stress jobs and helps people to make the most of their one wild and precious life (thank you Mary Oliver!)

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one, wild and precious life?”

Official Bio

Dr Rachel Morris is a former 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.
