"I had the pleasure of being coached by Dr. Nicole Schmidlin for a period of 9 months during 2011/12. Key focus areas were executive presence and the development of influencing and persuasion skills.
I initially chose Nicole as my coach based on her credibility in her prior senior leadership roles and her ability to build rapport from our first meeting. During the following nine months, I found her to be a highly effective coach. With her help, I was able to gain key insights into how to operate more effectively at senior executive level. She helped me explore and better understand my inner drivers and motivations, knowing this, refine my interactions to better achieve my goals. During the coaching sessions, she achieved the perfect balance of when to push me to explore difficult areas and when to hold back. In addition, the ability to discuss specific situations with a trusted 3rd party and receive relevant solid feedback was absolutely invaluable.
Working with Nicole has certainly had a very positive impact on my approach to leadership and I would highly recommend her to future clients."  Dr. D. Black, Sr. Vice President, CSL Behring AG; May 7, 2012

"I had the great opportunity to work with Nicole who proved to be an incredibly effective executive coach and strategy advisor. Nicole brings a toolbox full of diverse utensils that she applies with effectiveness (face-to-face and over the phone), adding value at every step. Her experience in the "real world", at the highest executive corporate levels around the world, together with her technical expertise and her extensive knowledge about different streams of thought (corporate, political savviness and philosophical), translate into elite coaching.No matter if she is guiding a review of one's career path (philosophical approach, lots of introspection), or if she is helping to rethink a specific strategy or tactic "hands on" at work (practical approach, immediate consequences). She truly trains you to see things from different perspectives, to arrive to the conclusion yourself (no comfortable, pręt-a-porter answers). Additionally, her personality just makes this challenging initiative easier. She has proven her world-class excellence in different industries, such as financial services and literature. I strongly recommend Nicole." M. J. Trapani, Director Corporate Credit Risk, Scotiabank, Canada; December 8, 2010
