What they say
Nicole is a wonderful coach! The experience with her has not only provided an abundance of „aha-moments“, reflections and tangible action items but also a great hunger and passion to continue working on my personal growth. She has a very natural and unforced way that makes one feel at ease and helps to be open for the process. Throughout the entire journey she is flexible and can adapt to you in a way that makes the experience truly individualised as opposed to running through a framework in a standardised way. With an underlying realism and pragmatism she empowers you to develop actionable goals and plans that feel do-able rather than overwhelming from the get-go. Finally she always brings loads of fun and warmth to the sessions which make them truly enjoyable!
Marina is a masterful coach. We have worked together on a variety of leadership topics such as leadership presence, communication and emotional intelligence. Marina's coaching style is empowering and challenging at the same time - combined with her strong strategic business background this makes her an invaluable partner for leaders who want to elevate their game and change the way they show up in their professional life.
The Leadership Alliance Culture Model and Coaching Process provides a clear roadmap to bring teams together around a compelling vision, comprehensive strategy and relentless implementation plan to create effective “working together” to deliver value for all the stakeholders.
Our decision to embark on an executive team coaching process with Nicole and Marina to re-invent the future of InterApp and re-wire for success has been the best decision ever. As a team, we have learned the value of group coaching and not only did it help us evolve as a team, it has also started a growth process in each individual leader. Through fostering peer support within our executive team, our transformations at the top are now a collective effort made visible in all parts of our organisation. In a short period of time, our change was real, experienced and visible on many levels. We highly recommend Heimann Cvetkovic & Partners for both executive team coaching process and individual coaching processes.
Marina did a keynote on the future of the boardroom and specifically board's role in strategy and innovation for my network of innovative business leaders. After having Rita McGrath at our previous event, expectations were pretty high - but Marina did not disappoint! Her insights on the boardroom dynamics and dynamics between the management and the board were spot-on. Engagement and feedback received from the audience was excellent. Looking forward to partnering with Marina again in the future!
I invited Marina to be a panelist at The Conference Board executive coaching conference in NYC. Her insights and practical examples on what team effectiveness means in the boardroom were highly valuable to our audience. There are very few coaches out there who possess both a deep business and C-suite understanding, coupled with exceptional coaching capability. Marina is definitely one of them!
Nicole is one of the most authentic, developed and reflective people I have ever come across. She is and has been a true Inspiration in my private as well as professional life. She is one of those people who could change your life forever after one conversation! Her skills and professional competence are accomplished and profound. Her natural kindness, patience and curiosity are inspiring. Working with her will stick with you forever.
