She is insightful and more than willing to share her knowledge and experience with all of her clients.
As a Certified DISC, DF and EQ specialist, she evokes the concepts of TriMetrix which provides three comprehensive elements. First it provides a DISC report on a person’s style, how they communicate and how they relate with others or tasks. Secondly it provides Driving Forces, an inventory on why a person is driven by what. Thirdly, it provides a portfolio of professional development suggestions that can be used for development and training.
Add EQ to the mix and a person is presented with an outlook of how they will engage with others, practice empathy, lead others and a measurement of personal and professional acumen.
Why is this important? For teamwork, sales and individual coaching, understanding how a person relates, what drives them and where they could benefit from development is the number one success key.
Why Nikki? You will not find a better and more enthusiastic believer in how powerful this tool is.
