As director of a $500M business unit within the highly regulated financial industry, Jody built a reputation to emulate as someone who created an inspiring culture of leadership. Her people excelled and revenue grew. She rose steadily, ultimately overseeing a workforce of 2,200.
Jody’s results led the executive office at her Fortune 250 employer to tap her strategic, leadership and presentation skills for the C-suite and key senior management. She calls balls and strikes as she sees them with an uncommon candor and refreshing grace that resonates with executives across industry sectors.
Today her clients report their realization of business goals, conviction to bold changes, and personal fulfillment.
Jody brings highly developed expertise in two areas of leadership coaching that are rarely if ever, found together:
Equine Guided Educator
To broaden her expertise, Jody earned a specialized behavioral science certification as an Equine Guided Educator. Through this skill set, she helps clients identify patterns around the roots of their personal thinking process, including unconscious physical behaviors or energy that can propel or impede them. NaturaLead Momentum Coaching has shown that even the most esteemed leaders find continuous growth through attention to their presence.
Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)
When decisions fall at the intersection of money and life as they often do, Jody’s ancillary background as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) uniquely equips her to offer an educated opinion about her client’s financial preparedness and strategy. This expertise can include insights to maximize the value provided by her client’s professional advisors.
As the counterpoint to her coaching life, Jody challenges her physical and mental game as a competitive equestrian and avid sailor. She finds that a common thread of accomplished leaders is a keen dedication to sports or hobbies that propel self-improvement and can require physical power, presence and committed practice. Her passions require a trust in leaving one’s comfort zone, often without the luck of natural talent. Whether in a business context or out, she relates to the challenge of pushing boundaries with the quiet reward of personal accomplishment.
