I am so honored to write this testimonial for Nicole Spracale. Over the past year or so that I have known Nicole, I have been amazed by her industry knowledge and willingness to share it with students to assist with their professional development. … While watching Nicole present to a group of students about how to interview effectively I was particularly impressed at the immense knowledge she possesses about searching for the ideal career, demonstrating professionalism, and advancing in the workplace. However, she is also extremely knowledgeable about starting and running an effective business. She can coach and train on the entire spectrum. .. Nicole is very easy to connect with and creates an atmosphere that makes others feel comfortable. I am excited to continue working closely with [her].
Nicole is a mentor and our go-to resource for anything relating to People, Processes, or Systems. She's our outsourced COO. Nicole comes in, handles a project outside of our internal capabilities, and the end result is a timely and functional deliverable.
Nicole is exceptional in her field. She is an excellent presenter…professional, composed and eloquent. I am constantly surprised and delighted by Nicole’s level of knowledge! She understands the business process from inception to exit, and all phases in between. Her experience in Human Resources and recruiting helps her clients understand how to choose the right people, in the right way, with the right results. Nicole clearly understands the changes in our business climate and remains relevant with her information. She blends her expertise with an insatiable passion for helping business owners succeed.
Nicole Spracale has the 'sparkle' we needed for our session on Overcoming Obstacles and Challenges for the mentorship program. She delighted us with her colorful presentation and well-organized illustrations. Nicole's stories and examples are impactful and prescient. She covered basic to complex resources and gave us tools to work in our personal and professional lives. I highly recommend Nicole as a speaker and educator."
... One of the aspects I respect most about Nicole is her honest approach to coaching. She gives feedback that is to the point and can easily be implemented. Nicole has expertise in helping people have more executive presence and confidence, she has specifically helped me in this area.
Nicole is brilliant at creating the right infrastructure and systems to start, grow and scale a business. She has extensive experience with managing projects of all sizes and a track record of success. Nicole is smart, savvy, supportive and solution-driven. You will be grateful you decided to hire her to take your company to the next level and beyond. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Nicole for more than five years now and she’s been a blessing to me both personally and professionally. You need Nicole too!
I had the honor of being represented as a candidate by Nicole on a C-level search. Nicole was a consummate professional throughout the entire process, keeping both me and the client engaged and informed every step of the way. She was deeply knowledgeable about the organization's unique needs, and quickly earned my trust and confidence. She guided me to articulate my purpose and helped me land a win-win offer. Nicole's talents go well beyond search, and her passion for helping executives find their purpose is infectious.
... One of Nicole's greatest assets is her willingness to be flexible around projects, focusing on how she can contribute and add value. She is always quick to respond, thoughtful in her strategic approach, and committed to her belief in the long-term view of our purpose and goals. It is clear that she has the passion and grit it takes to help support the growth of a business through the startup stage.
Having recently moved to the Valley and after a traditional job search was proving unsatisfactory, I decided to venture out on my own in the HR/Talent Management consulting arena. I saw Nicole speak at Phoenix Startup Week in Feb of 2019, sought her out after her incredibly engaging presentation, and set up a meeting. I quickly realized that Nicole could help me achieve what I was unable to do alone. Working with Nicole has been transformational for me! She held me accountable, she gave me great ideas and believed in me when my belief in myself was wavering. Thank you, Nicole, for keeping me on track and showing me how to dream big!
I've been working with Nicole for years and it has been a huge blessing for me and my business to have her assistance in keeping me focused. As a Financial Advisor, my day to day can often be described as a "whirlwind." Any given day I may have a client who has passed away, someone who was let go from their job, and/or a client who found out they are pregnant and adding to their family. All of these life events happen amongst my 200+ clients while also conducting annual reviews, portfolio rebalances, and all of the other important tasks that we take care of on a daily basis. The whirlwind is all very manageable but can make it difficult to maintain focus on the growth drivers that we strive towards in this office. That is where Nicole comes in! She has an amazing ability to take a mountain of a goal (and our goals are very ambitious!) and breaking it up into small bite-sized morsels each month for my branch team to focus on. She pushes me to accomplish those small steps each month and does an amazing job of helping me clarify what is important to my business and my clients and what is getting in the way of us achieving what we have said we want to achieve. The level of accountability she pushes me towards has improved every aspect of what we do here. Honestly, I owe her a great amount of gratitude for helping my branch become one of the fastest-growing Edward Jones branches in the Phoenix metro and would highly recommend her as a business coach to anyone that wants to push themselves, their business, or their team towards higher peaks.
I've been lucky enough to have Nicole as my coach and mentor. With her strategic coaching methodology, she's helped me refine my skills, core values, and abilities as a career coach so I can assist my clients. She's positive, personable, driven, and focused! Nicole only has your best interest at heart, so if you're ready to put in the work, Nicole is the coach for you. Thank you, Nicole.
I know Nicole as an energetic, enthusiastic, and caring professional with voluminous knowledge in business, Human Resources, Coaching and Training, and everything related to people and talent acquisition in business. You can't go wrong relying on her expertise and high-level of execution.
