I’m Nicole Pavelka, and I started my first design company, right after college, where I landed BMW as one of my top clients. I spent 12 years working for them and other Fortune 500 companies, leading my team and developing skills in design context research, design strategy, brand development and project management.
I’m also a self-professed lover of all things self-development and have immersed myself in various philosophies and trainings throughout the years. Because of my design-thinking background and awareness of the new culture in business, however, I became acutely aware of major gaps in leadership development of the past.
When I decided to follow my calling to help other leaders navigate through these murky waters, I became a certified coach, but I knew I would need to bring a different approach to the table.
