Nicole completed her Organisational Psychology Internship through Schuitema Human Excellence Group, where she was seconded to a Schuitema client within the construction industry for 12 months. This client’s rapid growth and expansion was accompanied with a series of vulnerabilities and challenges, which she was able to experience first-hand. Through some change management Initiatives, coupled with the careful Implementation of the Care & Growth™ thematic, Nicole was able to work closely with the leaders to help them on their journey of transformation. Since then, she has worked with several clients in augmenting the key aspects of Care & Growth™ – specifically personal, leadership and team excellence.
