As Co-Chairman of the Terror Information New York Group, (TINYg) I would like to thank you for taking part in our Lecture Series in New York City and London. This Lecture Series has been in existence for over five years and it is because of dedicated academics such as yourself that it still continues to be such a success. Your talk on “Leadership and Organizational Strategies” was the most well received and discussed by our attendees. It was an honor for the TINYg community to be able to hear your ideas.
"I wanted to write and thank you for your presentation at the International Council of Shopping Centers’ Security Convention. Your Presentation, “Managing Generation Y Employees and Customers” received the highest ratings for excellence by our attendees in a post convention survey. Nicole, as you know, our audience was comprised mainly of former law enforcement officers and they can be a tough crowd to communicate with but you absolutely wowed them. Thanks again for making our convention a success."
Dr. Lipkin has spoken to our organization on multiple occasions. Each time, we receive rave reviews from our leaders regarding her ability to engage the participants and provide meaningful and insightful information designed to help our leaders and workforce. It is a true joy to work with Dr. Lipkin – she is extremely professional, witty & incredibly knowledgeable. I regularly recommend her to colleagues who are looking for executive leadership & coaching speakers.
"We hired Nicole Lipkin to speak at Contalento Conference, the biggest HR Brazilian conference about talent management, which focused on gen Y management in its 2010 edition. Nicole was the right person we could hire to achieve the event goals. The audience was really excited with her coming to Brazil and was surprised with the great content offered by Nicole during the meeting. She was the best evaluated speaker by the audience at the whole conference. I truly recommend Nicole’s work.”
"It was the pleasure of the ASTD Houston Chapter to have Dr. Nicole Lipkin speak at our January monthly meeting. Her topic focused on the “Y” Generation and was filled with current statistics, stories and examples. Our group got so engaged we had to ask them to stop interrupting with questions so Nicole could complete the presentation. Nicole willingly stayed after the event to answer additional questions. Nicole’s expertise is obvious and her enthusiasm for the subject undeniable. Her participation made our event a great success."
Personal and organisational resilience are key foundations to corporate stability, success and prosperity. The quality and clarity of Dr Lipkin’s presentations, supporting materials and follow-up mentoring, have led her to becoming a highly sought after presenter and coach within and beyond CSARN’s networks of security and resilience practitioners.
As someone who deals with high-powered GenY students every day in the classroom, I can only imagine what employers must be up against. Â But do not despair — help is on the way! Nicole Lipkin and April Perrymore have discovered how to bring out the best of this talented but distracted generation. It turns out that GenY employees actually work but they work differently. Read this book and find out how to coach them to success.
Understanding how and why people do what they do and what makes them tick is at the heart of leadership, negotiation and working together effectively. When you add self-awareness to the mix, you have a powerful combination. What Keeps Leaders Up At Night, written by business psychologist and consultant Nicole Lipkin, helps leaders and managers understand the dynamic interplay between the workplace, psychology and neuroscience and forces readers to take a hard look at their own leadership behaviors, beliefs and thoughts to enhance their leadership impact. Written in a fun, witty way, this is a must read for anyone interested in developing their own leadership capabilities and the capabilities of others.
Reading this book was something of a light-bulb moment for me. Suddenly, long held thoughts, concerns and curiosities about how and why we operate as we do, have been explained in a thought provoking, intelligently written and highly readable way. This book enables everyone to consider their own prejudices, opinions and professional behaviours. How they inform their own agendas and judgments, and indeed the judgments and behaviours of others, over whom they have influence. This should be compulsory reading and reference guide for anyone leading, or with aspirations to lead, any team, group or business.
"Boomers and Gen-Xers who shake their heads in frustration as they speak of Generation Y will be nodding in appreciation after reading this smart, fair-minded and extraordinarily readable explanation of what makes our future leaders tick."
Y in the Workplace is a must-read for managers, presenting a clear-eyed look at the generation now in their 20s. Too many other books focus on unsupported ideas of GenY as rule-following conformists, but this book tells the truth businesspeople need to know: that this is a generation of independent thinkers with all of the both bad and good things that go along with that. This is the first book I’ve seen that discusses the workplace implications of GenY’s true generational personality, in all of its individualism and desire for work-life balance...
Nicole Lipkin is a new, witty and refreshing voice in the world of Leadership Development. While she has the PhD and clinical background to back up her psychological theories and her guidance for leaders, her writing is hip, edgy and spot on when it comes to describing the joys and challenges of leading people. Nicole doesn’t just discuss theory and share illustrative stories. She has an uncanny way of providing suggestions and tools that encourage and motivate you to apply what you have learned and find ways to change your leadership behavior for the better.
