Nicholas is a professional coach/mentor who has been a Learning and Development consultant in the workplace for ten plus years. I love and am passionate in what I do and believe that my energy is applied and transpired best in a classroom environment/landscape. I have spent quality time seeking self-awareness to learn the art of Emotional Intelligence and Maturity in order to connect to oneness and apply that philosophy/attitude into everything I do. My soul purpose is to be COLLABORATIVE and I apply that in Leadership and Management landscapes, hence roles I undertake. I have developed and written 5As The Backbone To Business collaboratively with a friend. From experience, when starting up or running a successful business Attitude, Ability, Affiliation, Advancement and Acknowledgement are the key elements, which frame and see to the success of that business. And I will bring the power of that model/methodology/philosophy into my teachings and share them with Insight Academy and the students alike.
