Women + Tech Meetup – Why did I do that? How understanding behavior changed my career and can change yours too

Why did I do that?

How understanding behavior changed my career and can change yours too.

In this talk Nikki Evans discuss the journey of her career, critical conversations that shaped her career and how not understanding her strengths led to a huge challenge and eventually to a role that she loves.  She will use these stories to help you connect dots in your own journey and help you see how to build your own confidence to ask for what you want, predict what others will do and influence your environment for better results. Nikki invites you all to take a complimentary communication style discovery where you will get a glimpse of how you like to communicate and how you may need to adjust to connect well with others.

Nikki Evans believes that work should be a place where we can thrive.  She helps leaders and teams identify strengths, see what is getting in the way of success and create actionable plans to get more of what they want. She is on a mission to make workplaces work… better.

Nikki Evans spent more than 20 years in various software development leadership roles before becoming a coach and speaker.  She has been studying human behavior for many years and loves helping high achieving women keep their seat (at the “table”) and their sanity to have careers that they love.

She is owner of Ridgeline Coaching and holds an MBA with concentration in IT from Georgia State, a BA in Psychology from University of Georgia and earned a PCC accreditation with the International Coaching Federation and is a Certified Practitioner in Team Coaching and Certified DNA Advisor and Consultant.
