“Nicki is one of our finest deliverers of Liberating Leadership® and Pioneering Professional®. The way she has embraced the learning and share it in a way which excites and delights her clients is exemplary.

The engaging way Nicki explains this to leaders means they make immediate and dramatic improvements in the way they work.

Liberating Leadership® Programme

As a Liberating Leadership® Practitioner, I am qualified to deliver a 2-3 day training programme providing mentoring and coaching sessions for a variety of different management levels, including Senior Managers and Directors.

The two-day intensive programme will enable you to realign your mindset, give you a path to run on and learn new leadership skills that you may not have thought about or been taught before. The course is designed for you to do a MOT on yourself and is highly interactive. It requires you to complete some pre course questionnaires that will guide you through the two days and identify your development areas, offering new effective solutions for you to take back to your teams to get them engaged and highly motivated.

Benefits of the Training Programme:

  • Understanding your own behaviours as a Manager
  • Increases Staff Engagement and Retention
  • Improves Productivity
  • Better communication within teams and across the business
  • Provides Managers with a Process
  • Contributes to the wellbeing of Staff


I also provide 1-2-1 mentoring, designed around your personal needs to help put training into practice once you are back in the workplace.

This can be arranged on a weekly or monthly basis, to help really ensure you achieve the desired results you set out to.

“I have found the Liberating Leadership® sessions really worthwhile, the course is structured well and is engaging throughout.

I have attended similar sessions in the past, but found that the content of this session really resonated with me in a way that other courses hadn’t. I was immediately able to pinpoint specific examples in my own work as we moved through the programme, I learned much more about my own style and techniques than I expected.

I couldn’t praise the support and guidance Nicki has given me enough, I have made significant progress in such a short space of time and am already seeing results both individually and collectively within my team.

I have found the process, both the initial course and my subsequent sessions with Nicki invaluable. If you manage people then Liberating Leadership could be of benefit to you and your team – it certainly has been for me.”
