Welcome!

I’m SO excited you’re here! That tells me that even if you’re hesitant, you really want to be the best leader you can be. No matter if you’re just starting to think about moving into leadership, or you are the experienced CEO needing a refresh. This you YOUR community, so please make yourself at home. 

Honestly, working with someone remotely always gives me a little anxiety, which Nikki quickly alleviated.

Since working with Nikki, I notice myself having a better appreciation of the process of soliciting and truly listening to the feedback from my staff. Sometimes as leaders, we forget that people think differently than we do. I notice since working with Nikki other colleagues making the effort to show appreciation to our team members.

Working with Nikki is inspiring. She leads by example and I have changed my leadership abilities through following her genuine approach to identifying and validating staffs' strengths.

Nikki's management style is unparalleled. While she is incredibly knowledgeable, she is always approachable, humble and eager to teach. I personally looked forward to every opportunity in which I was able to work with Nikki because I always learned so much, but also because I was motivated to reach my own professional goals.

I would definitely recommend working with Nikki to increase leadership skills! I have been personally managed and led by different people with all different types of leadership styles. I often compare these learning experiences to the leadership I was under when I worked with Nikki, as she is now my standard. She knows her stuff, is super organized (which I love!), and engaged. She empowers and motivates!

Before I got to know Nikki, I was unsure of her leadership style because her personality was so different from her predecessor, my former supervisor. Since working with Nikki, I learned to focus more on the needs of my clients.

I have seen Nikki inspire those who work directly under her. They admire her work ethic and her ability to multitask. Nikki values leadership of a team and of one's self. She considers leadership a trait that every individual can utilize for the best interests of themselves and their teammates.

Nikki works very hard to continually learn and grow as a leader. That alone inspires others to better themselves. Her personal guidance will bring success to many.

Some changes that I have noticed in myself as a leader since working with Nikki is that I do have a voice. She always encouraged staff to talk about our ideas and concerns to better the organization. Others that also worked with her have really started showing their determination, Nikki really pulled that out of you.

I love Nikki's trainings. She would work with all learning styles; visual, hands-on, etc. I loved Nikki's management style as well -- we felt appreciated and listened to. She has a strong, confident voice and when she speaks it makes you want to listen and ask for more.

I would recommend working with Nikki. She always checks on her people to make sure things are going good and encouraged feedback. If you were struggling, she would always be willing to support you in any way she could.

I really like Nikki’s speaking style. She delivers information in a very clear, concise manner that is easy to follow and learn from. She also always has a smile on her face and speaks confidently and positively. Nikki has the ability to deliver even bad news in a way that still makes people feel motivated, not discouraged.

I feel like a number of people I work with who were really quiet and reserved gained a voice after working with Nikki. She fostered an environment that gave people the confidence to speak up and out about things. This is something that has continued even after Nikki has left the organization I initially met her at.

Working with Nikki was a great experience for me that allowed me to grow in my professional life. I believe that many other people could benefit from the experiences I had in working with her.
