Jody coaches leadership professionals and consults with organizations working to solve vexing challenges. He also taught elementary and middle school kids for a decade. ""I am committed to environmental, economic, and emotional sustainability,"" Jody said. "I believe equipping people in families, groups, and teams connect more deeply with themselves, with each other, and with what is possible is the key."
What we really trained in was a language of connection (verbal and nonverbal) so that where we were once limited, we are now expansive, where we were once stuck we are now spacious, where we were once paralyzed by fear, we are now ready to lean into discomfort.
