Thank you so much for running that session, it went really well. I feel like it had a lot of value and provided enough information/tools to allow us to continually improve. You brought a lot of positive energy, as you always do, and it is impressive to see how well and how quickly you engage with a group of people. It was well-paced but only allowed for some self-reflection and sharing. I’d love to chat with you about how I can level up the entire product leadership team, let me know if you have time in a week or so.

I’ve asked Nico to facilitate the Mental Toughness sessions with my leadership team. He has an amazing ability to instantly create an environment where everyone feels comfortable participating and sharing. He has provided the team with valuable information and tools to use in both our personal and professional lives, delivered in an approachable and laid-back way. I’ve already signed up for more sessions with Nico!
As part of our Management Development Program we hold a Lunch and Learn session monthly. Normally we have a presentation by one of the Leadership Team and a group discussion on the topic. As a change of pace I asked Nico if he could lead a discussion on how teams create high levels of commitment. The virtual workshop Nico led was a great success. He is very engaging on-screen, maintains a good pace and really targeted the presentation to be relevant to our business. The value of the session was obvious during the interactive discussions, where almost everyone on line actively participated in the dialogue. The post session feedback was unanimously positive with several people noting they appreciated having someone other than their day to day leaders provide fresh perspectives. The virtual format turned out to work quite well. The presentation was not far different from in person and I particularly appreciated that Nico had everyone identify a specific commitment they would make based on the discussions that day. Capturing the commitments in the chat feature has given us a record we are using to make changes to the business.
I recently reached out to Nico to facilitate a group session with my senior management team. Nico provided a list of appropriate topics that fit our organization’s needs and facilitated an engaging and well-planned conversation on mental toughness. Our entire team benefitted from the topic and I have received positive feedback from each member of the team. Nico’s open and dynamic approach to facilitating conversation made the entire team comfortable with sharing personal experiences and enabled us all to set specific commitments and goals as we move forward.
I worked with Nico when he coached Musora through the EOS framework. EOS unified our leadership team, helped us make those business-critical decisions faster, and provided accountability across the organization. The EOS Weekly L10 Meeting Pulse and Accountability Chart tools just plain work and the principles behind them should be integrated into any business.
I asked Nico to help with Musora’s EOS integration and was so impressed with how he collaborated with my leadership team. He was able to keep everyone on track during the sessions and provide the right feedback at the perfect time. I look forward to working with Nico on future projects as my business continues to grow and evolve.
Our team truly appreciated our session last week. Your strength and wisdom shows through your faith is aligned with the principles of how we have tried to build Scamp.
We are excited about future sessions with you and will stay in touch as we move forward.
Thank you so much for the session Nico. I am still blown away by how much trust there was in that room to be able to share such personal stories and I really think we came out of the session stronger as a group.
Nico, thanks for a great day. The session exceeded everyone’s expectations. I thank you for helping Scamp become a better team. You have provided us with some much needed tools that will help us in our personal and professional growth. We will stay in touch and I look forward to our next engagement.
Nico is genuine, full of energy and humorous. He helped me to understand myself and my colleagues better and through this understanding, I know how to work effectively with the team. I feel that we have created a good awareness and goal in our team, aiming to build a high functional team to attain great achievement.
The sessions were well-planned and well-timed, covered the material well without ever feeling rushed, didn’t shy away from sensitive subjects but was always thoughtful and respectful of the individuals and the group. As individuals and as a group, we were prodded to move outside our comfort zones and in the process, we discovered trust, honesty and realistic ways to manage conflict. I think the overall culture of the team has become more open and I look forward to building on our strengths to achieve success.
Nico’s approach to teaching us how to rise as a result of our collective strengths was uplifting and positive. Within the first week after having completed our teambuilding sessions, we people started pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone and reach for the sky. Trust is a powerful thing. Thank you for releasing people from the fear of failing!
Nico led his day long ‘Getting your Team to Fire on All Eight Cylinders”’ workshop for my leadership team and tailored it to our specific needs. His workshop was engaging, thoughtful and self-reflective. Nico provided tips and strategies to perfect one’s leadership skills that were both eye-opening and easy to follow. We left the workshop uplifted and inspired! We are excited to build stronger teams within the organization moving forward!
Nico, I wanted to thank you again for taking the time to work with us this past weekend. You truly have been blessed with the ability to speak and teach.
I have received some great feedback from all those involved, the section on mental mastery seems to have been particularly insightful.
Keep up the good work!
Nico has a unique way of getting under the hood and helping you discover those behaviours and beliefs that either support or stop you from getting what you want. He also has a great knack for linking the actions/reactions in your personal and professional life in a way that helps you see the interdependence and impact. Most importantly he recognizes the greatness within each of us and never lets you forget just how wonderful you are.
