Since 2009, Nigel has dealt with a wide-range of internal disputes and dilemmas in his previous start-up roles as Founder, Co-Founder and COO. As a natural facilitator, Nigel understands how working relationships in startups can evolve over time and has a keen eye for identifying underlying issues that lie at the heart of external conflict. Above all, he understands that in a fast-paced startup environment, conflicts require action, and time is never on the companies’ side.
Nigel is passionate about identifying the triggers and root causes of negative judgments and hostility in the workplace that may undermine an organizations’ efforts to build effective teams and working relationships. Drawing from his past experiences, Nigel believes in creating a safe, open work environment to unlock for true collaboration and collective wisdom within teams.
