“It was clear to me that, within weeks of working with Dr. Nick, his advice and analysis on KSA’s investment process was beginning to pay dividends…. I highly recommend Dr. Nick to anyone looking to improve their own personal or professional productivity.”

~ Dan Khoshaba

“I have worked with Dr. Nick and his colleagues on a wide range of projects on behalf of my company and our client companies.  They are brilliant minds and great people to work with.  The services provided by Performance in Mind® can be a game-changer for your organization.”

Dr. Nick and CCY have formed a “strategic partnership” in several areas including Assessments for our Executive Search team and HR Consulting areas, with Dr. Nick acting as a leadership consultant for many of our executive teams.

In my line of work, we are exposed to all sorts of personality assessments and tests and have used them in our Executive Search practices for assessing talent. To be very frank, until now, I have never seen a test that has absolutely nailed my personality and tendencies under pressure (both work and sports-related). I am constantly amazed by Dr. Nick and his team.

Dr. Nicks and the Performance in Mind® tools coupled with his vast experience has allowed our organization to identify employee motivational factors and have helped to create better leadership tools and diagnostics.  We now have objective proven data to make sound decisions. He has provided our organization with insights allowing us to select the right people for the right position.  We are no longer in the “try it and see if it works” or the “let’s take a chance” mode. I highly recommend Dr. Nick to any organization that is struggling with talent acquisition and leadership identification and development.
