Every business interaction is a communication.

We help leaders and their teams achieve more — by transforming the way they communicate by increasing their Communication Intelligence (CQ).

What the other person thinks you said is your reality.

SSL provides consulting and coaching to empower leaders and their teams to thrive THROUGH effective communication TO build healthy culture.

Ineffective communication is at the root of poor leadership, unhealthy culture, failure to realize opportunities, unsuccessful risk management, non optimized use of technology and tools, and high turnover. When the team is not well connected and collaborating, or listening to customers, or working in a culture where they feel safe to raise their hands, communication is broken. 

The Sailor’s Sweet Life approach combines science backed strategies with research proven tools to help you and your team increase performance. Think of this as a crash course in understanding yourself and others to do better, easier.  Nicole quickly assesses your team’s unique struggles and then facilitates a customized strategy forward.
