“THANK YOU, thank you, T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U!!! I wanted to acknowledge you DID ask me a very powerful question and mirrored something to me on Friday. I was surprised by the question of enjoying entrepreneurship. I would never have seen that. It has been amazing to get into spaces and things I thought I could “NEVER” do…like sales and entrepreneurship. I was asked about the card I picked from the floor where the dad is helping the girl ride a bike. I told her about being like a mentor alongside and helping and allowing them to do the work, but then she asked me what it would be like if I was the girl being helped do it on my own. Mind blowing…especially after hearing Ann talk about shadowing a master. Just GREAT stuff. What a power-filled day!” -Amy Deemas

SHINE Retreat: Habits in March 2014

“I’ve always felt that learning new things, meeting new people and being open to experiences allows you to grow. That is exactly what SHINE does. Nicole walks you through the steps of self discovery. Her methods allow you to explore “who you are and how you can consistently deliver your best.” The SHINE process is developed to help each participant come to their own conclusions for personal growth. Nicole and Ann work together to guide you through the workshop, allowing ample time to provide each participant with actual tools you can use moving forward, and deliver solid feedback. It is worth every penny that you invest to gain from their valuable experience and positive energy. If you are seeking a way to grow professionally and personally then – SHINE is for you!” -Cyndi Caldwell, Certified Senior Advisor* Seniors Helping Seniors

SHINE Retreat: Habits in March 2014

“Setting aside time to attend the SHINE™ Retreat: Habits was truly helpful in identifying and addressing habits in my daily life. Nicole’s and Ann’s insight and resources were encouraging and applicable to my desire to develop the good habits in my life. Also, the setting, location, and serene atmosphere at The Farm created a peaceful time for self-reflection. I look forward to gleaning wisdom from all of the SHINE™ Retreats to live a Vibrant life!” -Teri Baltzegar, Financial Officer

“Good Morning Nicole, Pray you are well! Just thought I’d send you a quick email of encouragement. I’m taking another coaching class called Academic Life Coaching and loving it! During this class I’m finding myself thinking of you so often in reflection of our coaching sessions. It’s becoming increasingly evident how you continue to have significant impact in my life. Grateful.” -Elise Stanfield, PPCC

“I feel that Nicole has a great ability to translate a team goal that is recognized by all of those that attend. The message that I have taken away is that of having the ability to connect with other employee’s and to also understand that we all might have a different way of learning or understanding, a common goal is achievable. The group exercises prove that there is a way to get other employee’s from different departments to work together.” -Town of Mooresville: Public Works Department Feedback from Group Coaching Session on the Town’s Vision

“I enjoyed the training on excellence. I enjoyed the interaction of working together to accomplish a goal such as, when we learned to spin the buzz rings and pass it from person to person in our group. It was neat to see how each team encouraged other group members while they were learning to do the same task. It was also great to see teams reach out to other teams and share what they had learned. The speaker was well trained and versed and I enjoy listening to what she had to say.” -Town of Mooresville: Public Works Department Feedback from Group Coaching Session on the Town’s Vision

“Through the seminar it made me want to try hard on promoting excellence within myself and trying to get others to do the same. Learning the different mind sets of how people think will help with this on how we can embrace new ideas to move towards excellence.”

“It was an honor and a privilege to hear Nicole Greer speak last year in August 2013 at the Catawba SHRM Summer Workshop. The name of Nicole’s business is “Vibrant Coaching” and she delivered her program on Vibrant Leadership. Her presentation was very interactive, entertaining, and full of tactics and tools for the human resource professional. She was so passionate in her program that I invited her to attend our 1st meeting of the year for the Lincoln Area Human Resource Association in January 2014. The feedback was excellent. I highly recommend her as everyone present left feeling energized and refreshed with her presentation. You do not want to miss hearing Nicole! She definitely has the 3 D’s needed in the business world today: desire, determination and dedication.”

In God’s good time check out what I have found a series of studies & videos by great professors teaching for the wider public. In other words, accessible seminary for laity! God is indeed very good.

“Just wanted to say THANKS for the information, enlightenment and FUN of yesterday. You are AMAZING, and you have opened our eyes to see each other from a different and healthier perspective. I know I’m primarily a water, and I know that although there are things about myself that I would like to change I see more clearly now that many of these qualities I formerly saw as weaknesses can actually be strengths and can serve a purpose in my relationships with others.

Your teaching provides practical ways of valuing one another on a day in, day out basis, and I hope it was as meaningful for the rest of the group as it was for me. One of my colleagues, who was probably the most uptight about the seminar beforehand said the he truly enjoyed it and learned a great deal from it. I think he realizes and can appreciate the positive aspects of his element now, rather than focusing only on the negative.

If you hadn’t decided to do this for a living (which you clearly WERE meant to do) you could’ve been an awesome stand-up comedienne!!!

Thanks again, and I pray blessings on your work with AWESOME results!” -Debbie Wyatt

“Nicole, You are just brilliant! I have taken so much from your lesson without even reviewing my notes yet…
I love the analogy to putting on “these” shoes for each step you are taking toward your goal.
I’ve used the 3 B’s in conversation and that is so true!
I told my husband about it all, and even describing the circle diagram of what you are “given” and what you “choose” and then what your “core” makeup is. “What are you gonna do with that girl?” Ha! You are too funny, and that accent makes me feel right at home! I’m a southern girl too.
I would love to share more of my dream and goal with you one day. Thanks so much for your involvement. I hope to stay in touch.”

It was good for my staff to be a little outside of their element and in a new environment for training and to hear from someone other than a YMCA staff person. The resources that you passed on to me are also very resourceful and will put us in a good place moving forward as we have extensive training this weekend. I’m excited about moving forward with this staff development component throughout the summer. Thank you again for using your gifts/strengths last night to motivate and inspire myself and my staff as they embark on a long summer!” -Ashley Morgan, Family Service Director Lowe’s YMCA

“Thanks so much for teaching that class today. I could have sat through 8 hours of that, it was really interesting and you have a very dynamic and engaging way of instructing and motivating. Loved it! I think everyone got more out of you catering to their questions than if you’d been rigidly stuck to the lesson plan. Having recently been through General Instructor school, I understand how it feels now to be up front and trying to stay on topic. But I think today really helped some of those guys with what seem like real challenges in their daily lives. I also enjoyed getting to know some of the folks I never interact with, it’s amazing how fast you can get a deep glimpse into their lives by doing that one exercise!” -Lauren Childers, Crime Prevention Officer Mooresville Police Department
