Nicole Stinton has worked in learning and development for over a decade in Australia, Asia and Europe. Her passion for people development has led her to work as an executive coach, key-note speaker, and facilitator across all corporate levels.
Equipped with a CEG Coaching qualification, a Graduate Diploma in Education and a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Workplace, Nicole focuses on developing highly successful leaders, who are impactful, articulate, and dynamic in their communication. In addition to her executive coaching work, key skill focus areas include public speaking, emotional intelligence (EQ),communication, impact and personal brand, creative thinking, cultural diversity, and women in leadership.
One of the unique value-adds Nicole brings to her coaching is her experience outside the corporate sector as a director and actor in the performing arts industry. During sessions she draws from EQ and interpersonal best practices from both the arts and business arenas, to assist leaders in becoming more communicative, self-aware, and adaptable. Because of her arts experience, when needed Nicole is able to utilise acting skills to demonstrate techniques effectively and simulate work-place discussions realistically for coachees.
That communication and emotional intelligence are physical, not just mental, processes. So, you can practice and improve them, the same way you practice a tennis serve or a golf swing.
That all human beings are born innately creative, curious, and musical (Yes musical! Take a moment to listen to the musicality that makes up everyday speech. If you can slow speech right down, you might notice that that there’s almost a beat, always a rhythm and even a pitch to what we’re saying). Expecting people to be either left or right brained, artistic, or good with numbers, rational or instinctive really undervalues them. We are holistic beings, capable of much more than we are often given credit for.
To help enable people to access those parts of themselves they’ve shelved since childhood – such as creativity or curiosity (even musicality!). Organisations and people are usually more motivated, engaged, and productive when they operate holistically.
Creative, curious and musical.
