Make your own reality
nikdavis.com is a work in progress, a combination of all of my diverse facets - mother, wife, management consultant, writer, coach, change maker and a passionate believer in the potential of the human race.
nikdavis.com is about transformation, at an individual and organisational level.
It exists to help us all define a truer reality, to embrace our weaknesses just as much as our strengths, to connect at a much deeper and more meaningful level with our fellow human beings and to find a way to live, work and play in a sustainable and humane way.
It's a seemingly diverse combination of management consultancy, individual mentoring and personal story telling, all brought together by the common thread of humanity - putting people at the heart of everything I do, from delivering large scale business transformations, to simply showing up and owning up as transparently and honestly as I can.
Everything always comes back to people, we may weave our skills and experience into environments, challenges and opportunities, but none of that will succeed without the sturdy foundations of people.
Helping organisations achieve the 'seemingly impossible', think the unthinkable and deliver genuine transformation, driven by engaged and motivated people. Facilitating open and honest 'rumbles', in a psychologically safe culture, to enable people to bring their whole selves to work.
Supporting individuals to become whole, to discover what 'makes their hearts sing' and bring it to life via a combination of coaching, consulting and life experiences.
Creating some time out for people to simply have a conversation, create some headspace, connect with new people, let of steam or to simply 'show up and own up', in a safe and welcoming environment, where mutual respect, kindness and honesty are the driving principles.
On the last Friday of every month, I host a virtual coffee session - there is no monetry cost, only your time, trust and honesty is required. This is not a big event, just 5/6 of us having a chat about life and experiencing human connection.
I'd love to see you there, just follow the link below if you would like to pop along.
Showing up and owning up, sharing my stories with raw, unfiltered honestly, via public speaking, blogging, vlogging and podcasts to help others embrace theirs too.
I am happy to share both my personal and professional experiences and perspectives, good and bad, in the hope they can add value to someone, somewhere
These stories are shared on my blog, you tube and via social media.
Being a student of life and sharing all that I learn, to encourage us all to be more curious and empathetic.
Check out the the library for the curious, random inspiration, my blog and follow my vlogs on you tube.
I try to live my life as fully and authentically as possible and as part of that quest, I observe many things - about myself, about others and about life. And I like to share my thoughts, honestly and in the moment.
Some weeks are more fruitful than others, you never know when a thought, a realisation, or an epiphany will hit, but when they do, I write it all down and then I share it.
There is no rhyme or reason to them - I guess they are my own personal journal or as I like to think of them, love letters to you from me.
Sometimes I add several a day and sometimes none for several days - it just depends when the thoughts come, because I do not write, or think to a schedule, a brand, or even an audience, I just write from my heart, in the moment, in the hope that it will help someone, somewhere.
Please do take a peek and see if my words can help you too.
"Someone once told me the definition of hell; on your last day on earth, the person you could have become will meet the person you became" Anonymous
So, I spend my days trying to be the person that I am going to be happy to meet.
And that means being honest with myself about myself - the good, the bad and the ugly.
It means not being defined by a label, a job, a failure or a success, but being defined by the very essence of me - my values, desires, strengths, weaknesses, hopes and fears.
It means not being afraid to share who I am with the world - because it is my quirks, my imperfections and my truth that makes me worth having.
And that is why I do not cultivate a professional versus personal brand. Because I am all of those things and more. I do not want to turn up at work pretending or hiding, or carrying the heavy burden of shame. My personal experiences do no limit my ability to perform my profession, they add to it, because they make me more real, more able to connect with others through our shared experience of human messiness.
So, my world is a mixture of all that I am and all that I do.
And once we can accept and embrace that, for ourselves and for others, our world will be more diverse, more equal and so much nicer to be in.
