" Rachel can be classified as one of the top 5 PDA Analysts that I have ever trained in this methodology."

By Corlia Nel - Psychologist

I had the tremendous honour of meeting Rachel Nekati in September 2020. She attended accreditation in the PDA (Personal Development Analysis) Behavioural Assessment tool and the My PDA Coach (online behavioural coaching tool). I am one of two PDA trainers for the African continent and have trained over 800 PDA and My PDA Coach Analysts during my seven-year tenure. I can confidently say that Rachel can be classified as one of the top 5 analysts I have ever trained in this methodology. Her natural ability to connect to, and understand behaviour, has astounded me! It’s not just her technical skills that impressed me; she was a joy to work with because of her amazingly positive attitude and detailed, thoughtful questions, which allowed for open and constructive discussions throughout our interactions during the three day training period. Rachel has been welcomed to the PDA-Africa family, and although she feels that we blessed her with a new skill, I think it is us who have been blessed by having her become a Gold Partner!

"Leaders have energy, Leaders are multipliers, Leaders have patience, Leaders are self motivated and they motivate, this describes Rachel"

Neo Bogatsu - CEO - Botswana Insurance Fund Management (BIFM)

Leaders have energy Leaders are multipliers; they have patience Leaders are self-motivated and they motivate Leaders are influencers Leaders touch lives Leaders have no shame; leaders are visionaries   That’s how I describe and see Rachel Nekati, whom I have known for more than 26years now…. Over the years, I have seen and witnessed all these qualities in Rachel, qualities that are almost natural but are also practised and nurtured…for Rachel understands what personal growth means, what personal leadership means and that without internalising these, you cannot grow others, you cannot influence, you cannot lead… Rachel has this fantastic ability to motivate and help others grow, influence positively, build and nurture; she derives joy and happiness from seeing others grow and prosper…..As they say, it's what makes her “tick.”  

" A powerful soothing injection "

Angelina Ramogobya - Chika - Snr. Assistant Commissioner of Botswana Prisons

I've learned life-changing lessons from this empowering program. I realised that we sometimes exaggerate and make minor issues into big things, which causes us unnecessary stress. I feel empowered and as if I've been given a powerful soothing injection. Thank You, Rachel.

"I am now able to articulate my dream with a clear vision, confidence and direction"

Malebogo Busang - Creative Director

In a noisy world of solutions, guidance and information overload, all without filter, available at one's fingertips, what a perfect time to have a meticulous and grounded voice of reason with Rachel Nekati. A Critical Thinker and Listener, Rachel jealously protected and has personally steered my Creative Mind and empowered me to make my passion a sustainable way of life. I take pride in engaging with her excellent service. I can now articulate my dream with a clear vision, confidence and direction, a skill I found rather complex and unachievable before engaging with Rachel.  My heartfelt gratitude for your patience and robust understanding of the world we live in today. I am because you Are. Thank you very much.

"I wish I did this course sooner"

Rumbi Chonyera - Civil Engineer

I took this course to empower, inspire and motivate myself; moreover, Rachel exceeded my expectations. The Course was easy to follow, descriptive and highly interactive. I wish I had done it sooner; anyone who wants to effect a positive change in themselves should gift this program.

"I Feel Empowered and Excited About My Future"

- Hlengiwe Faku - CBT Life Coach and Training Consultant

I’ve just finished my stress and anxiety online self-coaching course by Rachel Nekati and Achievement Enterprises, and what a fantastic experience this was. I signed up for the online course because everything in my life was just too overwhelming. I was spiralling out of control; I had no control over my stress and anxiety. Before starting the course, I was unaware that the symptoms that I was presenting, “feeling panicky and sometimes out of control, " were signs of stress and anxiety. These were made clear when I commenced my online self-coaching course. Whilst I was busy with the course, it never felt like I was doing an online system – the support I received from Rachel was excellent; she was with me all the way. It felt like she was physical with me holding my hand, readily available when I needed assistance and clarity What have been some of the benefits or take-outs that I’ve gotten from the course:  The course helped me manage my stress and anxiety better  The system has brought peace to my life, I feel quietness on the inside, and I’m very calm  I can now understand my triggers and how to deal with them  The course made me realise that stress and anxiety are not something that I need to face on my own. There are people out there to support me.  I feel empowered and excited about my future  I have taken my life and the purpose I have in this life back I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to manage their stress and anxiety better and empower themselves. I’m amazed and overwhelmed with the changes I’m seeing in me. I just want to thank you very much, Rachel, for this life-changing course. I wake up daily with a purpose and drive to do the things that I enjoy and love. Thank you for reintroducing me to my life again.

"This Is The Best Course I have Ever Done"

Obusitse Mongatane - Snr. Training Coordinator - Central Transport Organization

This is the best course I have ever done. I have learnt to positively acknowledge, recognise and use my emotions where appropriate. As human beings, we are created with emotions which, in most cases, can be a hindrance if they are not adequately managed. L am now in a position to understand my emotions and control my feelings; I know what to do with my emotions. I know how to separate emotions from decision making. My life is different.

"I wish I had Met Rachel 20 Years Ago"

- Allison La Grange - DMSS

It takes only one conversation with Rachel to realise how motivational and inspiring she is. Rachel can read people and situations immediately. Therefore, she can give sound advice. Her workshops are full of life-changing practical solutions to our hectic work and personal life. Rachel leaves you feeling energised, positive and motivated. I highly recommend one take time to go out and attend one of Rachel's workshops. I only wish I had met Rachel 20 years ago! You won't regret talking with Rachel. Her inspiration gives you so much confidence. Go for it!

" My Life Has Transformed. I am More Focused and Alert"

Samantha Matlhagela - Manager Card Products and Etiquette Coach

Nekati, through her platform Just Talk with Rachel and her personal development programs, has been able to help a lot of people to understand their emotions and manage their thoughts. I have personally benefited from her teachings and seen my life transform for the better. I have become aware of my thoughts and emotions and have been able to change my behaviour and attitude towards life. Through the positive changes, I am more focused and alert and see results in everything I do. There is no doubt that Mrs Nekati is committed to making a difference in other people's lives.

By: Ruth Maphorisa (Director of The Drive PTY LTD)

I am happy to recommend Rachel Nekati as a Coach and Trainer. I first met Rachel in 2010, delivering a course on Emotional Intelligence, and her impactful delivery has contributed significantly to who I am today. I have known Rachel as a Transformational Leader who has always led by example. One of Rachel's greatest strengths is following through and taking a keen interest in the achievements of her clients/mentees. One notices that all her deliveries are on transformation as opposed to maintenance. These are the qualities of an effective coach/trainer. I have followed her and recently enrolled in her Just Eat Intermittent Fasting Program. Rachel continues to positively transform people's lives with her excellent Coaching and Training work.

" Rachel has passion for teaching, she is very focused and committed"

by Pascaline Sefawe - Deputy CEO

I have known Rachel Nekati for over 20 years. I met her at the University of Botswana in 1992 when we started our BCom degree. I found Rachel very energetic and committed to her school work. We used to study together and were constantly amazed by her quest for success, especially at such a young age. Our relationship continued building throughout the university; the highlight was when she started her training business. She did training for my team on emotional intelligence and me. This training changed my life and the way I do things in life. I became more self-aware and self-motivated. Rachel impacted my team and me significantly, and I thank her. Rachel later introduced me to the IF lifestyle, a fantastic one I have adopted since 2018. Rachel has been my IF coach since then and has had a very positive impact on the way I relate to food. I have successfully lost weight because of her excellent coaching and teaching skills. In summary, Rachel has a passion for teaching; she is very focused and committed. She puts all the effort into everything she does and impacts positively on everyone she interacts with. Rachel has the right energy!

"I am in Control Of My Emotions and Feelings"

Merrilyn Cathy Thuso - Operations Manager DMSS

Having Rachel as my coach was one of the best things that happened to me last year. Her course changed the way I see life. Though it was focused on work, her lessons can also be applied in every aspect of our lives. I started being more organised and planned for my day the day before, which helped me be more productive at work and in life ( I feel overwhelmed if I don't do that now). My behaviour changed too; I used to feel entitled to how I think (my mood), so that made it difficult for my colleagues to work with me sometimes, I guess even people in my life🤔 but anyway, I got to learn to manage my feelings. I learned how to resolve conflict, and from all this, I saw the importance of the golden rule - put yourself in someone's shoes, and do what you would like them to do to others. I learned a lot from Rachel, and I am grateful for the training I received from her.🙂

'Excellence In Achieving'


I learnt how to work on my role profile to match the leadership I come across

- Silas Sehularo: Public Relations Officer

I benefited by getting a lot of clarity on personal traits and unique behaviour.

 - Gosego Pilane, Chief State Counsel and Legal Advisor

It made me aware of my blind spots and strength and also to think more about the future than the past, which is not serving us. More importantly, I learned how to buckle up.  How to deal with challenges. To initiate solutions, not lament problems or justify why things cannot happen. –

It helped me to understand exactly who am I. 

- Oarabile Nkwe. Coordinator of Ministry towards Improvement

It assisted me in discovering myself, knowing that I did not know what I thought I knew about myself

 - Kgangmotse E. KGANGMOTSE- Chief Economist

I've become more self-aware. I have learnt my strengths and weaknesses and have been equipped with skills of balancing myself. The facilitator was high energy and very engaging. I all around had a fantastic experience.

 - Lone Gabalebatse, State Counsel

I have learnt to start with me before I could finger point if work is not done. Identify my weakness and use them to create opportunities. I appreciated knowing my grey areas and how best I can work with others with different profiles. Together we can achieve the objectives of the ministry. –

I know myself fully, the traits I need to push from the grey circle in the PDA Wheel Chart, and the high intensity and the low-intensity traits which may cause delays in my service delivery. I appreciated knowing that the kind of leader helps us align with his way of doing things.

 – Oupa Masesane. Deputy Permanent Secretary - Tertiary Education

It gave me a detailed description of my strengths and weaknesses, which have contributed to my success positively and pointed to my negative behaviours, which I need to work on. It is a very empowering, motivating and supportive strategy geared towards building compelling and succeeding teams. Team Alignment is a phenomenal concept that diagnoses the behaviours of each team member in the context of a big team. It also introspects the architecture of a given team and comes up with robust, practical commitments to place the team on a collective path of a top-notch and high-performance culture. 

- Peter Mafokate, Chief Project Officer Anti-Corruption Unit

Excellent, I managed to see myself through the eyes of my Team Members. I look forward to Emotional Intelligence plus Couple Mentoring when offered.

-  Ndoze Moletelo, Planning Officer

The assessment has exposed my behavioural style.   I now know my area of strength, and I know my motivators. It gives the team profile and shows areas we need to modify to achieve the best out of our team. 

- Mooketsi Dijeng Assistant Manager Reforms

It has helped me appreciate my strengths, blind spots, and how these play out in my personal and professional space.  It helped me understand other team members more. 

- Tebogo Bagopi Deputy Permanent Secretary

I benefited from the PDA assessment very much. I mostly apricated the Review of blind spots and how they can be addressed.

 – Kekgonne Baipoledi Deputy Permanent Secretary
