Nicola Shergold

Business Psychologist

Nicola is a Chartered Business Psychologist. She has over 17 years of experience working in the areas of people selection, leadership and development, with all levels of seniority from shop floor to senior executive level. She has enjoyed working with clients from both the public and private sectors. Her background in assessment and development provides her with a unique understanding of resilience and wellbeing, and how individual contributors, leaders and teams can grow, develop and enhance these areas to become more satisfied, productive and fulfilled at work.

Nicola is a certified Wraw practitioner and has extensive knowledge around the use of psychometric assessments to support clients in their personal development, growth and resilience at both a team and individual level. She is a qualified trainer for the British Psychological Society Test User and Personality (TUA-TUP) Test Accreditation as well as for a variety of tools including the Hogan HPI, MVPI, and HDS, the EQ-i2.0 and EQ360 assessments of emotional intelligence, and the Risk Type Compass. Nicola is also a certified practitioner in these tools and others including the OPQ (Occupational Personality Questionnaire).

Nicola’s involvement in the development of Wraw has primarily been reviewing the research evidence around the 5 Pillars model of resilience, as well as trialling and testing the tool. Nicola is thrilled to be a member of the Wraw team at TWP, and enthused about the possibilities that the tool will deliver:

“Building individual, team and organisational resilience is increasingly important for organisations, as we seek to enable more effective responses to the constantly changing and advancing modern business world. Wraw’s unique model of resilience draws on the latest scientific thinking and research from fields as wide-ranging as neuroscience, developmental and positive psychology. Resilience is a dynamic and interactive process, and the output of the Wraw assessment offers participants an insight into their current levels of resilience along with tangible suggestions for targeted development, to help enhance the resilience and wellbeing of individuals, teams and organisations.”
