Working with Nicolas was an extremely enriching experience. Nicolas has an ability to ask thought-provoking questions that allow you to reflect and come up with your own solutions to various professional and personal challenges. His inquiry and guidance was particularly helpful to me during a time of transition into a new role in a new country. I would highly recommend Nicolas to anyone looking for insightful, objective, and real-time career support.
Nicolas has great expertise with carrying various types of conversations. He always makes me reflect on what I propose. I want to say that he gives good advice, but that’s not really it - he just enhances my ability to reflect deeply so that I can distill all my thoughts and issues clearly.
While Nicolas has years of extremely valuable experience, he never makes me feel that he is superior to me. He is simply an equal conversation partner who helps me recognize that I’m not yet where I want to be, but that I can take the right steps in the right direction with his support. I have never felt like I am standing still, nor that the steps we take are too big. We always discuss the right things at the right time in the right dosage. To me, the process is wonderful.
The experience [of working with Nicolas] was very good for me. He is able not only to address things without avoidance, but also to articulate things very well without hurting others. He worked exactly as an external director of the company should, and added the true value of helping us work faster and smarter, and with the objectivity that people in positions of power struggle with.

The Ontological Approach
At the leading edge of coaching worldwide today, Ontological Coaching is “an extraordinarily powerful methodology for effecting change for individuals, teams and organizations. It is highly effective because it is based on a new deeply grounded and practical understanding of language, moods and conversations for behavioral and cultural transformation” (Newfield Institute)
