"I chose a retainer partnership with Nicoa to ensure she was available when I needed her most. Whether I am driving into work or need a quick role play prior to an important dialogue, Nicoa makes herself available either immediately or as quickly as possible. She really is both my coach and an extension to my human resources team - a professional and personal business partner that is focused solely on my success without any other corporate agenda. It works for me."
