Hi I’m Nicola,

At Gen-i, I teach people the HOW Skill Set. I show you HOW to turn your ideas into actions, through improving your productivity, working WITH your psychology and HOW to use the power of your habits…

…to make change happen with ease.

Nicola MacPhail - Gen-i

Do you…?

Suffer from Poor Work Life Balance? Are stressed and tired?

Want to improve your productivity?

Attempt to start something but then… NEVER finish it?

You are in the right place…

I know we all have lots of ideas about WHAT we want to do – that dream trip of a lifetime, more leisure time, better health, fitness, financial peace of mind, mental clarity, lower stress, better lifestyle…the list goes on.

We gather great ideas from books we’ve read or events we attended, experienced those glimmering and exhilarating moments of inspiration from films and people we speak to. But after the inspiration fades, so does the motivation, as we start thinking about …. HOW the hell will I make it happen!

The struggle is real, HOW do we make it happen? HOW to turn ideas into ACTION.

This is what you will learn from here…

The HOW Skill Set

The HOW Skill Set includes the vital knowledge, tools, techniques and psychological concepts you can use to get things done. To take your IDEAS and turn them into ACTION.

I can teach you HOW to make the seemingly impossible, possible.

A bit about me…

I have attended multiple events, run workshops and run my own Weekend Retreats (check it out HERE), but felt that one of the most important factors that helped people actually make change happen was the consistent contact following the event – the accountability, support, community, reflection and continued learning.

So, I came up with the HOW Skill Set toolkit and developed the online Gen-ius Journal to teach it to people in an easy and effective way.

“…I’ve had a successful coaching and therapy business for 20 years.  And while I did a passable job of managing my finances, I never had real clarity about where I was at or, even more importantly, where I was going and how to get there. Well, after spending a few hours with Nicola, I got that clarity beyond what I could have expected!  Not only did I get clear about how to best organise my business and personal finances, I got clear about WHAT I really loved to do, HOW to implement that in 2019, and WHEN to do it.  I also got clear on how to make this plan way more financially successful than ever before, WHILE being way smarter about how many hours I worked!! Win/win/win/win!!…” Isabelle Tierney - Client


I speak at a variety of events about the topics within the HOW Skill Set. From the ‘Power of Intention’, to productivity, to the psychology of change and power of habits, I educate audiences on the power of the HOW Skill Set and sharing tools they can apply to their working lives.

I effortlessly complement a variety of talk subjects, helping audiences make the most of all event content and actually implement key takeaways into their lives. Further, I craft talks of any length, including interactive workshop-style sessions and Q&As.  >> CONTACT ME <<
