Nicole Coustier

Coaching professionals and teams in demanding environments to navigate high-stakes decisions.

You make thousands of choices a day. But when you face tough decisions, you may feel anxious and lose sleep, worried that you won’t make the right decision.


The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way – 100% of your decisions can be made with absolute confidence. 


I'll show you how to do it.

Creator of the D.A.R.T. Method®

My clients are high achievers working in demanding roles, just like you. They are ready to finally make confident decisions, resolve lingering problems, and get everything they need.


You are a smart, accomplished professional... yet you might find that the usual strategies for success are now leaving you frustrated or uncertain, even while you’re doing all the “right” things.


Sometimes, you find yourself navigating a situation that feels very high-stakes and high-consequence, and you want the insight and confidence to make the best decisions. 


The solution is not what you might think.


Professionals like you don’t need more time – you’ve already spent enough time on the issue without a decision. You don’t need to do more research or gather more data.

Instead, you need to remove the blocks to your own expertise. Let go of the limitations that hold you back from leveraging the talent, training, and experience you already have to get what you want.


The key is not managing information. They key is managing your mindset and emotional response.

Before I met with Nicole, I was feeling kind of lost, not knowing my next step to take or at least not feeling my next step to take, to move forward. I felt like I was beating my head against the wall, going around in circles chasing the shiny objects. I figured I had so many things I need to do that I didn't know which thing to start next.


In a very short time, Nicole helped me to make some good decisions, and she help set me on a clear path. Through her methods, I discovered the tools that I need. Most of my life I told myself that I didn't have any fear, but I have come to realize lately, that I have more fears than I was willing to admit to. But, I do have proof that I can and have made great decisions, and can continue to do so.
