Nicole Coustier

Helping Achievers embrace their expertise to confidently manage tough situations.


My clients are Achievers.

They are smart, talented individuals who have seen incredible success in their careers and personal lives.

And yet…

They are struggling with the issues that come with increasing success: confusion about their own expertise, decision-making in high-stakes situations, self-confidence in performing at senior levels, or work obligations overshadowing quality time with their growing kids.

After going through my programs, these Achievers gain clarity and flourish with confidence to get through any tough situation and accomplish new levels of personal and professional success.


Nicole helped guide me into a great new role that I’d consider a dream job. Her feedback and insights were excellent. Her reassurance kept me on track, pushed me past frustrating moments, and gave me significantly more confidence. I gained clarity of myself, my wants, my strengths, and more. I’m forever grateful.

Creator of The DART Method® and

Founder of Aurelian Coaching

I am a certified executive performance and life coach, helping already accomplished people double down on their powerhouse talents in order to position themselves ideally for any new opportunities that come their way – or better yet, to create their own opportunities.

During my 25 years in government, corporate and consulting environments, I was always curious about what prevented people from living up to their potential and performing at peak states. After years of experimentation, tweaking, and validation, I finalized a comprehensive set of tools that boosted my personal effectiveness in profound ways – as well as that of anyone working with me. 

Now, I bring these tools into my everyday coaching, helping Achievers leverage their expertise, practice new levels of self-confidence, and make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
