Nicklas has a rare ability to cut to the chase - it is straight to the bone, as in STRAIGHT to the core of the bone. He says things as they are - but at the same time his message is being delivered in an unpretentious and very personal way. It is clear that he spends time understanding the people and the organizations he is facing - and that makes the collaboration easy, inspiring and trusting.
