Nicole Johnson-Scales

LSI Founding Instructor & Executive Coach

For over 20 years, Nicole Johnson-Scales has worked to climb the ladder in Corporate America. Throughout these years, she found the best way to thrive as an executive was to be ambitious in the climb and develop professional joy along the way. This is why she created NJS Consulting Group; to help executives find courage, confidence, and a powerful strategy to lead with impact.

When working with executives, Johnson-Scales helps them get out of their own way, develop a strategy to get to their next level of success, and find more purpose in their careers. Outside of her one-on-one work with executive leaders, she facilitates team leadership workshops to help the team show up as more impactful leaders and deliver positive change to their organizations. She also offers consulting services to businesses to mitigate risk, supports growth initiatives, and creates positive transformation with their leadership teams.

Johnson-Scales holds an MBA from Olivet Nazarene University and is a certified coach through an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited program. She is an Adjunct Professor at Loyola University, Chicago, and Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, where she teaches courses on Values-Based Leadership, Leading Organizational Change, and Corporate Social Responsibility. She is a Founding Guide at Chief (Chicago), the social network dedicated to women’s leadership.

When Johnson-Scales is not serving her clients, you can find her watching a movie with her husband, shopping with her daughter, or laughing on the phone with her son, who lives out of state. She loves to travel and spend time with friends and family.
