Nikki Carpenter is a former clinical nutritionist and leader who discovered leadership development training and eventually coaching in the mid-1990s. She’s been a self-employed ICF certified coach since 2000. Her coaching focus is leadership development and career discovery.
Her first brush with the Principles was via the work of Joseph Bailey in early 2000 and then more recently she came upon the Three Principles in 2014. Since that time she has immersed herself in learning the principles from a variety of practitioners and perhaps a few too many courses and books.
Currently, she is dancing with the possibilities of supporting leaders to understand the principles as a means to move beyond their apparent stress burnout and overwhelm when this fits their desires for coaching. When the Three Principles are not an overt conversation they underpin her orientation to others as already whole wise and capable.
