Rosie Evans-Krimme works as a coach and behavioural scientist, specialising in digital coaching. She first studied psychology and undertook her Masters in Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London. Following an observation to improve proactive and preventative approaches to mental health and well-being, she certified as a mindfulness and coach practitioner, gaining experience in applying these approaches in organisations. It became clear that one way to increase the accessibility and impact of evidence-based approaches such as coaching was by leveraging recent technological advancements. As a result, Rosie joined the leading digital coaching provider, CoachHub, where she now leads the EMEA Behavioural Science team. Her team consults global organisations on how to effectively design, implement and evaluate digital coaching programmes and contributes towards product innovation. Rosie regularly writes and speaks about coaching ethics, mental health and well-being, and the evolution and future of the coaching industry.
What inspires you?
Helping people, teams, and organisations be at their best. Increasing accessibility to evidence-based mental health and well-being approaches to people of all career levels worldwide. To deepen our understanding of the active ingredients of coaching and apply this into an impactful digital product that drives sustainable changes for individuals, teams, and organisations. Doing this together with a team of committed and passionate people. Ultimately, I want to have a positive impact on the world of work.
What relationship has been most influential in your life?
There are many people who have been influential at pivotal moments in my life. If I have to identify a common theme across these people, I would say that they (mainly educators) demonstrated true coaching mindsets — always helping me to tap into my strengths, see my potential, and identify resources available to me. This also includes people I’ve never met and was influenced by their work and research. If I had to choose one person, I would have to say my father, who is a coach and has been for about 25 years. Looking back, I can clearly see how he brought coaching into his parenting style. His influence in my professional interests has undoubtedly been significant! Otherwise, I would say that my relationship to myself and deep connection to the ‘knowing’ part of me, which I nurture through my mindfulness practice and in community.
