Strengths * Awareness * Synergy

Authenticity is key in personal and professional development. As the Relational Strategist, I help high-performing individuals and organizations restore synergy in and out of the workplace. Why is this important? Consider what self-care means for you, as an individual. How often does your personal life enter the workplace with you? Every time you go! The more you practice personal self-care the better you become. Just as there is personal self-care, organizations must exercise self-care as well. How does your team do that exactly? If you’re not sure, think about the invisible costs of attrition and let’s talk.

As a relationship builder who can support you in obtaining a higher level of performance and engagement, I understand the power of effectively using strengths awareness to unleash the energy, efficiency, and the potential within yourself and others. Leverage the power of the talent you bring to the table. Focus on developing what makes you uniquely YOU! Live a life of authenticity, power and purpose. For yourself and the impact you have on others!

    Teri McGraw Certified Master Coach -
  • “I got to know Necie personally and professionally while working with her on a major project she coordinated for my company, Nikki Woods Media. Our arrangement required almost daily contact with me and more than 20 others she managed for a literary collaboration.

    Necie dealt with the team as a group and individually with patience and kindness as she guided them through a variety of phases lasting several months. As a professional, Necie’s contributions were equally impressive.  She was entrusted with day-to-day involvement with my team and she was punctual, dependable, and performed her duties in an exemplary fashion. She has excellent written and verbal abilities and her organizational, planning and management skills are impeccable.  She performs with confidence and it is clear that she is serving within her passion.

    I am already working with Necie on a second project that is equally challenging and I have no doubt that she will perform as well as she did before. I would gladly recommend her based on her skills and her character.”

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Necie on several projects for Nikki Woods Media and witnessing her genius as she’s facilitated breakout sessions and key talks.

I highly recommend Necie for your next book project women’s retreat, conference, or corporate event; that’s if you want it done in excellence.”

If you’re looking for a Speaker to connect with the authenticity of your audience, hire Necie!”
