TESTIMONIALS

  • -Desiree Adaway, The Adaway Group

    Nicole Lee’s coaching was just what I needed and the best part was I did not even know I needed it.  She helped me get crystal clear on what I wanted, what I needed and helped me create an action plan that totally supported accountability and growth.

  • -Tanay Harris, Mommy Up

    Nicole’s wisdom, insight and wittiness have been invaluable to my motherhood journey. She is a wise soul who fuses together her passion for justice with raising our parent consciousness and creating a better world and pathway for our children. Her lively discussions and truth telling, are a must for any parent who has ever doubted themselves. You will feel deeply understood and empowered. Nicole is truly a beacon of light.

  • -Brian Concannon, Executive Director, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti

    Nicole is highly skilled at leading constructive, respectful discussions on controversial issues. She is also very good at helping others develop the empathy and strategy they need to discuss issues they care about with people who care about them differently. I regularly prepare for difficult meetings by channeling my inner Nicole–her advice and strategies invariably make the discussions more enjoyable and productive.

  • -Ericka Hines, Every Level Leadership

    Sometimes empathy does have boundaries. I just got off the phone with Nicole Lee who coached me on an uncomfortable situation in my personal life when I had the chance to teach someone about racism and stereotype but I opted out of confronting them. Nicole framed my response in the best way: she said in your work (as a diversity,equity and inclusion practitioner) you have to be highly empathetic to help people like you do… But you need to have a balance and a choice that you don’t always have to be that person in your personal life.
