In the world of virtual interactions, matrix organizations and unprecedented change, alignment has become more challenging than ever. Organizations state they do not want to operate in silos, yet struggle to find an effective way to prevent them. Leaders aim to stay connected and aligned, yet they struggle to find an effective way to do so. Leaders hate company politics, yet believe it is not possible to survive a corporate culture without it. In her lighthearted and authentic style, Nicole challenges collective belief systems and opens up her audience to new perspectives. Rich with anecdotes and inspiring stories from more than two decades of working with world class executives and their teams, Nicole introduces you to the real power of Executive Team Leadership expressed as a strong and authentic Leadership Alliance. Leadership teams will gain insights into the five driving forces needed to work together beyond the ego in order to achieve greatness.
In order to create the most value for your organization, Nicole designs individual in-house keynotes that are specifically tailored to your needs, wishes and intentions. Her Keynotes are dynamic, engaging and often include an interactive mini learning journey to create an even bigger impact for your audience. Depending on the desired outcome, they are anticipated by reading materials and reflective homework in advance of the keynote.
Some examples of topics related to Authentic Leadership:
- LOVE: “What’s Love got to do with it?”
- PURPOSE: “Discover your personal purpose and how it serves the organizational purpose”
- EMPATHY: “Leading with Empathy”
- CHANGE: “Are you the change you want to be in your organization?”
- HAPPINESS: “Being successful AND happy – is it possible?”
It was a real pleasure to work with Nicole as a renowned guest speaker and experienced moderator at our flagship event and our exclusive C-level community at the top management level. Her authenticity, her passion for the Leadership Alliance topic, her curiosity, her deep knowledge and her enthusiasm are contagious. She is unfailingly generous with her insights and support to inspire, inform and mobilize. It is always a pleasure to work with her – because you learn a lot (often about yourself) in the process.
I had the privilege to have Nicole as a speaker at our Empathic Change summit last year. Nicole luminously closed our conference with her Keynote on „What’s Love Got To Do With It?“. She masterfully brought love in leadership to life and touched the whole audience in a deep way. She authentically embodies her message and inspired everyone in the room with her presence, style and charisma. In my 13 years of professional experience as a curator for C-Level events this has been truly one of the best talks I witnessed. I therefore strongly recommend Nicole
Achieving your full leadership potential based on your authentic strength is a must for high achievers. It’s not just in turbulent times and times of change that it’s important to be able to deploy your own powerful resources.
What people say about the book
“An excellent, thoughtful read to discover new dimensions of authentic leadership, highly recommended for leaders who want to create strong and sustainable leadership alliances. This book is a must!
"I love the simplicity, organization, reflection & action exercises. You have found simplicity in complexity in your non-linear approach to help us discover our core truth and transcend linear thinking and enter authentic cooperative leadership from inside out! Bravo! "
"How to Develop the Authentic Leader in You“ is one of the best books I have read in a while and will now be part of my favorites. The book pulls together so many perspectives that I have read in different books and articles however this book helps makes sense of all the connections between the insights. The 7 Dimensions of Leadership Intelligence are thought provoking and scary at the same time. I learnt so much on my journey through the book and had many ‘Ahha’ moments! Very thought provoking and meaningful book that put a fresh perspective on authentic leadership."
