Executive Coaching

The D.A.R.T. Method®️ of Deliberate Planning

High achievers working in demanding industries need to have executive thinking long before they have an executive title.

You can’t wait until you’re in the hot seat before you see yourself as an industry expert and learn high-stakes decision-making.

You already have what it takes...
But you need to cut through the clutter and leverage everything you've got.

Manage the discomfort of professional growth and step confidently into the weighty responsibility of true leadership using your unique combination of talent and expertise.


Nicole helped me realize how my own perspective was preventing me from moving forward in the way I needed. She helped me ultimately shift my viewpoint. After coaching, I had greater clarity to reach my goal.



The D.A.R.T. Method®️

The D.A.R.T. Method executive coaching program includes 12 sessions designed to help high achievers working in very demanding industries follow through on getting exactly the outcomes they want in their lives.

D.A.R.T. helps you identify the things you really desire - drilling down past your own perceptions or stories about what you do to find out what it truly is that drives you. I had never considered thinking about my path in that way. I really appreciate how she keeps me shedding those perceptions.

Nicole helped me achieve breakthrough insights at a time when I was stuck in my career and seeking new purpose and focus. As a result of her coaching method, I created a stronger foundation from which to make decisions about my career, and I discovered a more effective way to navigate challenging work relationships. I found the lessons from our time together even carried over into my personal life. The gains from my time with Nicole far exceeded my expectations.
