Nicole has been such a supportive, proactive, and reliable coach. She doesn't just go by the books, and I really liked the flexible dynamic nature of our coaching. I can really trust her and rely on her guidance to execute things. 

After completing her program, I discovered so many new insights about myself and gained clarity on my values, career plan, and what I need to do to better myself and my leadership. Gaining confidence was such a big factor for me and with Nicole’s help, I was able to successfully deliver an important keynote presentation in front of a large audience - my first live presentation in 4 years and to my largest audience to date. This was definitely a good investment for me and I won’t hesitate to re-engage Nicole for future services as my career progresses.

I can wholeheartedly recommend coaching with Nicole Schmitz! Nicole is very intuitive, empathetic, and encouraging. All our sessions were virtual but I was amazed at how much she picked up in my tone of voice and body language, even over a zoom call. She was great at getting me to dig deeper to insights I didn't even know were there. I was looking for some guidance from a coach as I was starting on a new phase of my career and personal life and Nicole gave me the guidance and space I needed to really build my path forward. The strategies and mechanisms she gave me through our coaching started showing results even HOURS after a session and are still serving me now, several months on. I can definitely recommend coaching with Nicole! You'll thank yourself (and Nicole) as you navigate your next steps. Thank you Nicole!
