NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.

I'm either lost or found - depending on your perspective. I don't have a 9-5 job, I don't have a daily schedule, I don't have my own income stream, I'm not really sure what my 'end goal' is and...
I recently read a fantastic article on being a parent - raw and honest observations from mums on their experiences. It was a breath of fresh air to read some unfiltered and hard-hitting truths about this subject. Most of...
Your career is often a core part of your life. It can be your structure and your meaning d’etre. If that’s the case, then it is critical to allow all of you to take part otherwise large portions of...
I’ve had a great career, I’ve been privileged to work with some fabulous people and witness some truly momentous events. But it hasn’t always been plain sailing. I would describe my worst experience of transformation as hell and my...
Creativity and problem solving I think creativity, the birthplace of problem-solving, is a vastly under-estimated skill, that all organisations will need to find a way to unleash if they are to stand any chance of survival, as we move forward...
My random observations on life continue. Each day I awaken with fresh ideas and insights - all driven by my desire to get behind the optical illusion of life, to really see people, to understand my own journey better,...
Agile, digital, diversity - all hot topics for organisations today. But what really needs to happen to enable us to embrace these concepts? A fundamental change in our culture is required. Our current working practices are reminiscent of the industrial...
Potentially, I am over half way through my life. So, I thought that it may be prudent to check my progress against the project plan and review my lessons learnt to date. My plan is made up of a...
