 Some of the people you may see around the Transforming Teams office often are:

Nicki McKenzie

Nicki is driven by her passion and desire to assist people to increase their self confidence and self esteem, to bring out their best which translates to a better achievement of goals, both on a professional and personal basis. She has a genuine empathy for others and enjoys all aspects of communication and problem solving with the working team and individuals.

Nicki has more than 15 years experience in training and development, people management and experiential training. She holds her Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Life Coaching and her Diploma of Life Coaching. Since 2007 she has been studying Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) which focuses on superior communication skills both for personal, professional and business development.

Nicki feels privileged in her coaching role with International scholars from the Asia Pacific region which is an Australian government leadership incentive.

Working with groups and individuals to focus on self awareness and awareness of others is her favourite area as she strongly believes that these areas need to be worked on for any change to be lasting. 'To provide a fun learning environment where people can truly grow is what it is all about, we are all unique and when we come to acknowledge and appreciate these differences we can get the most out of everyone.'

Nicki believes that everyone has positive intent and she is always exploring with this in mind. She is on a continuous journey of discovery and growth and loves Mahatma Gandhi’s quote 'Be the change you want to see in the world'. In her spare time you will find her at her favourite beach house spending quality time with family and friends.
