Leadership SUCCESS is a behavior, not an activity 

Hi, I'm Nikki Trotter, CEO and Founder of IO.
I am an expert in leadership, team and organizational effectiveness.
I believe that Leadership is broken, not the LEADER! That's why I'm 100% committed to challenging and changing the landscape of leadership and  helping leaders achieve greatness by redefining how they lead and what it means to lead in a 21st-century workforce.

As a leader in human behavior and coaching psychology, my services are designed to accelerate leadership performance, and bring forth the potential, and well-being of leaders and their teams. This is the WINNING and success you have been seeking for a purpose-driven life and high-performance leadership and organization

Kenny Hosey, Software Engineer
Walt Disney Company

When I began my first leadership role, I was starving for education and guidance to become the best leader I could be. Nikki was one of the first people to ignite a passion for leadership in me. She brought a professional and real approach to leadership coaching and training. Nikki also lives what she coaches and it is apparent through the examples she shares. She’s a trusted coach and someone I will always feel comfortable seeking guidance from.

Nikki brings a wealth of knowledge to put into practice regarding a large spectrum of areas. As an empathetic and strategic leader, Nikki partners with stakeholders to devise and execute on a shared vision. She engages high performing teams to deliver business impact and galvanize culture. She is an expert communicator and facilitator, which has been a benefit for global organizations looking to move the needle. Nikki is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend an opportunity to utilize her expertise.

Tony Qualls, Director of IT Service Delivery, AdventHealth

I had the privilege of working alongside Nikki as she collaborated with our Technical Services leadership team on Covey's Laws of Trust. Nikki is an empathic leader and demonstrates a wonderful understanding of both the material that she teaches as well as the real-life experience that she has gained in her career. Additionally, I was able to work with Nikki in an ongoing basis for several months as I worked to help develop not only myself but my leaders to become better communicators, utilize our strengths, and build relationships across our enterprise. I recommend anyone that needs an authentic IO Psychologist to work with their organization to reach out to Nikki. You will recognize the value and benefits immediately.
