Meet your lead facilitator: Jodi DeRoo

Jodi has mastered a variety of roles, from treasury management to operations to talent management. She has worked both with start-up companies and tenured organizations to drive culture change in a way that inspires organic growth, momentum, and team engagement.

Through a journey with cancer, Jodi became passionate about brain science and how the power of a healthy mindset can impact one's overall well-being. She is certified in Brain Science-Based Coaching Skills from the Neuroleadership Institute.

"My passion is people. I believe most people have untapped potential, and if businesses invest in unleashing that potential — then the numbers will follow."

Imagine you've been asked to hold a glass of water...

Jodi talks about just how workplace conflicts that, without the skills and perspective, can start out small and steadily grow until they fully dominate and deteriorate relationships.
