Coaching is releasing a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.
As a certified executive coach and management consultant, I’m passionate about partnering with my clients allowing them to reach their full potential, often leading to breakthroughs in performance.  I draw upon my education and experience as a former Fortune 100 and Global 200 executive, award-winning entrepreneur, management consultant, accomplished speaker, with numerous published articles on globalization of business and recruitment industry trends to my credit.  I’ve lived in 4 countries and am multi-lingual.  My experience, skill-set and multicultural exposure help me to provide career and company-impacting business services as an executive coach, management consultant and in leadership development.


“You cannot teach humans anything. You can only help them discover it within themselves.” — Galileo


“The one thing people are never good at is seeing themselves as others see them.”

– Former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt

A common challenge for leadership in any organization is perspective and also their ability to relate to others for the purpose of making the biggest (positive) impact.  Without this critical self-awareness, many leaders never reach their full potential, as defined by their ability to become expert problem solvers and motivators of others.

Successful executive coaching is about a partnership where you and I embark on journey to uncover what is really important for your success, how you can best achieve your desired goals and creating sustainable change. It is a balance of my support and challenge of you that helps to ensure your goals are developed, achievable and create that change to elevate your effectiveness as a leader.


  • Recognize where you are now vs. where you want to be.
  • Establish a clearly defined goal, which we will know if you can answer the question “how will I know when I get there?”
  • Determine if the goal is truly important enough for you to want to pursue.
  • Create a confidence in your ability to achieve your goals.
  • Develop an action plan to help you reach your goal.
  • Have a method for holding you accountable.


“If I were given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute resolving it.”

– Albert Einstein

One of the most prevalent problems I’ve encountered in consulting is that all too often a client jumps into problem solving mode too quickly.  What’s worse is when they diligently go about trying to solve the wrong problem.    Sure, there is more to management consulting, but the operative consideration has to be “impact” and “practicality.”  I can move you quickly through unknown waters avoiding the pitfalls most fall into and teach you how it’s done.


  • Objectivity – My extensive experiences include some incredible mistakes, amazing learning and success, but often also at a steep price.  I bring this experience to the table and help my clients navigate through the maze and provide an objective perspective to help identify what you may not know.
  • Impact – The best way to lead to performance breakthroughs is to ask lots of questions and to have a true understanding of what the right outcome is and also why it’s really important.
  • Practicality – I pride myself on being a consultant that has been there and done that, so rolling up my sleeves to help ensure the vision translates from paper to real life.


“Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.”

— Tom Peters

For leaders to be effective they must always strive to better engage with employees, gain knowledge of customer needs, and strive to set an example for others.  Most leaders who aren’t satisfied with the status quo continually seek ways to improve their own performance and, as a result, motivate employees to do the same.  This is the best way to set the stage for organizations to achieve their full potential today and it also helps develop the next generation of leadership.

Inez Moriarty

“Nick helped me see the big picture when it came to sales in my business.  Before we started working together, I had hit my limit.  Nick coached me through the process of growing my business to levels I had never imagined.”

Victor Mieres

  “Nick uses incisive and evocative inquiry that helps me gain a fresh perspective of opportunities, but also deepens my understanding of what makes me tick as I am contemplating my next move… If you are contemplating a career change, are in between jobs, or just want to be a more effective leader, I suggest you give Nick a call.”

Owen Conflenti
