The “Good Dog” Approach to Self-Improvement

Ever watch a skilled dog trainer work with a puppy? The trainer never ever punishes the sweet beastie for not sitting on the “sit” command, but rather rewards the dog with praise and treats the instant his furry butt hits the ground. The dog—smart pooch—gets the idea real fast, and proceeds to sit on cue with remarkable consistency. It’s no different with employees. Any good manager knows that catching employees in the act of doing something right is far more effective in improving their…See More

When You Look In The Mirror, What Do You See?

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? That you’re too short, too tall, too fat, too skinny? That you somehow grew a pimple overnight, or a new set of crows feet, or maybe it’s time to go shaved-head considering that ever-expanding bald spot? Or do you see your wonderful smile, the sparkle in your eyes, the confident set…See More

HALT: A Masterful Technique for Working with Yourself and Others

My German Shepherd-mix rescue pup, Baer, is a great dog. He’s all legs and energy, so sometimes I think of him as Fred Astaire, and sometimes more as the Energizer Bunny on steroids. Especially near mealtimes. I feed my dogs twice a day, and I’m convinced they have clocks in their stomachs, because right around 5:30 p.m. (a half hour before their 6:00 p.m. meal), they get antsy. In particular, Baer. But around 5:30 p.m., I may very well still be working—as I am today, and Baer shoving my arm up…See More

The Best Valentine’s Gift Ever: “I Don’t Care”!

No, not “I don’t care about you” – that would be awful! Just “I don’t care.” By itself. As in “I don’t care that you left your socks on the floor.” “I don’t care that you over/under-tipped the server.” “I don’t care that you were five minutes late.” Because here’s the thing: nothing kills romance faster than getting bugged about every little thing that’s different about how the two of you go about life. Certainly, there are major differences, critical differences, that must be addressed. If you…See More

Don’t Settle: Get Inspired With New Year’s Resolutions for What You Really Want!

Atlanta’s Homeward Choir, a group of 26 homeless men from Atlanta’s Central Night Shelter, was invited to sing at the White House in December of 2015. When the group got the invitation--and how that came about is a wonderful story --among the many questions the choir members asked of their…See More

The Holidays: “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Really?

The Holidays! You’ve made your list and you’re checking it twice. Let’s see: not enough money in the budget to get the kids what they really want. Not enough for a quick two day get-away for you and your S.O., given the cost of transportation, accommodations, and a sitter who will put up for that long with the kids and your menagerie of 2 cats, 1 dog, 3 hamsters and 1 and ½ lizard (tail missing). Relatives who are thrilled to announce they’re flying in for a nice long visit, of course staying…See More

What's your best marriage advice?
Never take your spouse for granted, focus on all that is wonderful about your sweetheart, and let them know, time and again, how much you appreciate all they are and do - for you, for your family, and in the world.
About Me:
My mother named me "Noelle" because, being French, she wanted me to have a French name that couldn't be mispronounced in English. Didn't work. I've been called "No-No," "Noellie" "the First Noel" (among others). Poor woman, she meant well . . . Meanwhile, growing up in California with a French mom and a Cincinnati, Ohio, born-and-bred Dad was an adventure: European discipline, Mid-West values and organic foods before anyone knew what organic was. My stylish Parisian mother would have loved fashion-plate children, instead she got my tomboy sister and a bookworm - me.

My not-very-straight-line path took me to Wellesley (briefly), UCLA (BA), the Sorbonne in Paris (Doctorat), United States International University (Ph.D.) with assorted jobs along the way: medical receptionist, 2nd stage manager at the Lido (Paris), acting coach, clinical psychologist, trial consultant, relationship expert, and mixed through it all - author! The thing I love best to do. Well, along with giving seminars, speeches, creating videos.

The one outstanding lesson life has taught me, and that runs through all my writings in a variety of ways is this life, and everything that is in it - you, me, our friends and families, the animals, the earth, our planet, the galaxy, God, all of it - is most present, most fulfilled when it is grandly, genuinely, thoroughly appreciated. Appreciation is the cornerstone of love, for only when you value something, cherish it, do you come to love it.

Now, here's the serious stuff:

Personal Growth

As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nelson has empowered countless individuals to be happier, healthier and more successful at work, at home and in relationships. Dr. Nelson shares her proactive and positive outlook in her books, articles, workshops and seminars. Dr. Nelson's popular monthly newsletter, "A Note From Dr. Noelle," and her book, The Power of Appreciation: The Key to a Vibrant Life (Beyond Words Publishing) give readers the skills to use appreciation's energy to impact their lives. Dr. Nelson is also the author of Everyday Miracles (Prentice Hall Press), Winner Takes All (Perseus Publishing), Dangerous Relationships: How to Identify and Respond to the Seven Warning Signs of a Troubled Relationship (Perseus Publishing) and, most recently, Your Man is Wonderful (Free Press).

Dr. Nelson has appeared on national and international radio and television including CBS's "The Early Show," ABC's "The View," Montel, Fox News and CNN. She has been in publications including Redbook, Cosmopolitan, Entrepreneur, People, Bottom Line/Personal and the Los Angeles Times. Dr. Nelson has spoken on appreciation before audiences in the U.S., Canada, England and Australia.

Business & Legal

A business trial consultant for 20 years, Dr. Nelson works closely with attorneys, company management and corporate executives.

Dr. Nelson has extensively studied how people think, make decisions and how they commit to those decisions. As a trial consultant, she helps attorneys enlist the cooperation of 12 perfect strangers (the jury) to get the results they want--all in the face of opposing counsel trying to convince the jury to come to the opposite decision. Since 2000, she has helped win more than $500 million for her plaintiff clients. Her defense clients have saved hundreds of millions more.

Dr. Nelson's background as a business trial consultant and psychologist requires the study and understanding of people--real people--not the theoretical customer or employee discussed at business schools. Her book, The Power of Appreciation in Business: How an Obsession with Value Increases Performance, Productivity and Profits (MindLab Publishing), takes the appreciation concept and applies it to the workplace.

Dr. Nelson is a member of the National Honor Society of Psychology, the American Society of Trial Consultants and the American Psychological Association.
