Nicole spoke at our Soroptimists of Havre de Grace, MD business meeting on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. She spoke to a group of 20 community-minded women. She began with an activity that engaged everyone, and then spoke on “Choosing The Positive”, a topic sorely needed in these chaotic times. From the outset, she had everyone’s attention, no side conversations, no one left the room. Her talk was clear, well-organized, to-the-point, tailored to the group, and, judging by the total attention the group gave her, totally absorbing (no drowsing or nodding heads after a substantial meal). Afterward, many people thanked her and also thanked me for finding her. I think the membership left buoyed by her attitude.
-Barbara Burgard, Vice President Soroptimists International
Nicole worked only an hour with our office of 80 tremendously varied people and her ability to hold an audience combined with her knowledge of her field left us with practical tools that we could use in the office and in our lives. She struck an excellent balance of content and fun. I would highly recommend her to any group wanting to improve their working environment.– Dr. Nancy Barr, Medical Director, Family Medicine, Medstar Franklin Square
I was having a horrible issue with my boss and I felt stuck. Nicole listened deeply and I felt like she really “got me.” She taught me about strengths and I took a free assessment to find out what my strengths are. That lead to a huge realization and now I understand what I need in order to thrive in work AND in life! In the end I decided to resign and Nicole helped me go through that difficult process in a way that left me feeling really confident, grateful and at peace.
Nicole was extremely helpful to speak with concerning a very personal and involved issue at work. I did not feel judged and her compassion was evident from the start – this encouraged me to relax, be honest, and absorb even the little findings we discovered.
Your energy was great and you can tell its genuine! Even in an hour you were able to give us practical tools to use daily. Also gave me inspiration that I can stop the rat race and be happy! Thanks so much!
Nicole is a truly fun facilitator who is eager for all participants to make connections. Her authenticity just oozes!
Nicole fostered connection and ease within the groups. She encouraged sharing ideas and experiences. Along the way positive psychology was encouraged, noted, and identified.
Something was missing. Something was longing in me, it was answered and I am connected again thanks to this delicious time spent together on the CiPP Tour Wilton, CT.
“I met Nicole as a teaching assistant at CiPP, a program in Positive Psychology offered by the Whole Being Institute. Immediately impressed by her knowledge of and passion for the subject, I determined to engage her as my personal trainer as I have sought to implement and practice the CiPP portfolio of tools and concepts. We typically Skype monthly for one hour. Recent sessions have included: (1) reviewing Sheryl Sandberg’s bestselling Option B, (2) completing and analyzing my VIA skills based assessment test, and (3) utilizing Carol Dweck’s growth mindset and fixed mindset concepts in my personal life. I recommend Nicole without reservation as a personal trainer. She has enriched my life with her insights, love and caring for me and my relationships. I am proud to call her my friend and coach. Sincerely, Byron Nimocks”
The children are still talking about your presentation, especially the corresponding body language and stances! -Montessori school teacher
I wasn’t sure how I could possibly go back to work at that miserable place. I was so embarrassed to be crying but Nicole was wonderful, made me comfortable and we even laughed a bit. In one session she helped me get clear on what I wanted to do. I was amazed. Since then I’ve left that job, and got another one which is much better! There are still some things I don’t love about my new job, but I’m using what I learned with Nicole to focus on what I can do about it. I don’t dread going to work everyday anymore. It feels like a weights been lifted.
Working with Nicole through skype was wonderful.The homework is perfect and just what I was looking for. She was really spot on with sensing where I was and knowing what would be helpful for me as I go along. A great coach in all respects.
Nicole helped me through the most difficult transition in my life thus far. A year has gone by, and I’m grateful every day. At the time I wasn’t sure if it was money worth spent, but now I know it was.
