Hi, I'm Nicole.

I’m on a mission to make teams work well together.
I’m educated as a scientist (I studied food chemistry and hold a PhD in chemistry) and even worked in that area for a few years. Then I switched careers to positive psychology coaching and change management – an area where I had close to zero knowledge and no contacts in the company.

It was hard and I struggled.

I took courses, read books and often felt like an imposter – after all, I had to lead the change management stream in a major transformation project with no experience whatsoever. 
Finally though I discovered how to build the right mindset, create a strategic and supportive network and lead others (even without positional power) to get the job done.

It's all in the relationships...

… with yourself and with others.
These insights provided a critical breakthrough for me. As a result, I was able to get out of my own head and into the game – using my natural strengths to do creative and effective change management for the project and gather the support required.
But not only that. Now I am continuously asked by colleagues across the business to consult on and support their initiatives and projects. All while I’m still learning myself!

I've compiled all my tried and tested strategies on managing my mind, building strong relationships and making teams work ...

… and packed them up in a coaching programme that is designed to help scientists, engineers and other technical experts to become the go-to person in their area and lead their team without the guess-work.

But wait, there's more...

I also help companies turn the groundbreaking insights from positive psychology, positive leadership and grassroots change management into action to create lasting positive change in their organisation.
I invite you to join me. I coach and help people both in person and online.
