Our team

Nichola JacobNichola Jacob

Nichola has over 25 years’ experience in development. With a business background in the Independent Broadcasting Authority, Logica, Coopers & Lybrand and PwC, Nichola knows what organisations are like and appreciates their challenges, frustrations and opportunities. She has also led her own HR and OD teams and draws on this knowledge and experience in her client work

Nichola has a breadth and depth of experience from one-to-one coaching to team development, and the facilitation and design of many different interventions, with both an individual and an organisational development focus.

As important is her approach, which is thoughtful, very client-focused, and very engaging. She is passionate about working in an appreciative way, from strengths rather than a deficit perspective.

She is a pragmatic practitioner, a great listener, insightful in her challenge and sensitive in her perception. Her facilitation is excellent, showing great judgment in knowing when to intervene, when to hold back, and appreciating just what support is required.

She connects well with all her clients; offering a supportive yet challenging space for development. The relationships she builds and the depth and warmth of the connections she makes with people enable her to bring challenge and new perspectives to individuals and organisations.
