"After a year of working together, I was thrilled to be graduating a cohort of employee-owners from our companywide leadership program. To conclude their program experience, I asked Jodee to lead discussion around setting productive habits and to explore the headspace of being a leader. Within minutes of Jodee’s introduction, the group was immersed in thought-provoking dialogue that had them exploring their personal leadership habits while encouraging and appropriately challenging their class members. Each moment of reflection and purposeful interaction can be credited to Jodee’s ability to create strong group dynamics.
"She offered a thought and quickly gave space for the group to reflect and engage with one another. Because of her experience, she knows when to lean in and 'play big' and when to let participants explore on their own. So often I find facilitators take up too much space in the room, which stifles the growing process. Jodee’s skills within the facilitation space are tremendous and offer learners the opportunity to grow themselves while supporting others through meaningful conversation.
"If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about the development of others and knows how to get the most from learning opportunities, I couldn’t recommend her more."

“I was on a repetitive cycle with my own limiting mindset when I reached out to Jodee for coaching. Now I get curious about things and I hear Jodee in my head. I don’t seem to worry as much. I am more aware and I start to attract positivity automatically. I am a leader in some ways, but I will follow Jodee wherever she goes.”
-- Dr. Ed LeQuire, Vitality Chiropractic, Rochester, MN
“Every now and then, if you’re lucky, you get the rare opportunity to learn from someone who really, truly believes in what she teaches. Jodee is one of these special instructors. After teaching to a sold-out group of top producing agents, lives and hearts were changed. Not only was the information Jodee gave us powerful, but the delivery and articulation of the information is what people continue to talk about. Thank you Jodee, for sharing your time and talents with us and we look forward to an annual class with you!”

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Jodee for several years and working with her as our Director of People Development. If you are looking for the boring, check the box standard training , Jodee may not be right for you. If, however, you are searching for a curriculum that challenges, engages and inspires your employees, then Jodee is the perfect person. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience yet is able to keep the dialogue simple so the group can absorb what is being presented.
"As a personal coach, Jodee listens and shares her thoughts and helps the individual find the right answer for them. Nothing cookie cutter about her approach. She meets each individual for a personal and relevant conversation that gets people thinking differently. With Jodee’s help, I was able to identify numerous blind spots in myself and change my approach and ultimately my attitude. With a never-ending supply of optimism, Jodee is a breath of fresh air and is insightful and energizing to any group she gets in front of."
-- Jeff Vanlaningham, Chief People Officer, BNG Team, Fargo, ND
"I attended Jodee's REAL Impact course and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I've attended many courses in the past providing insights on how to become more effective at communication with co-workers and resources on how to build strong and cohesive teams. Unfortunately, I often left feeling like there was something missing but I couldn't put my finger on it. That was, until I experienced the REAL Impact course.
"Jodee has a special way of tapping into how people feel and putting those feeling into words, clearly and eloquently. She has created a course that gets to the heart of the matter; that real communication starts with me. This course works from the inside out rather than the outside in. The exercises in this course taught me about how I communicate and show up in the world. I have noticed that I am more effective in my communication as a byproduct of what I learned about myself in this course. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for an effective communications course that will truly create change, to experience REAL Impact."

“As an entrepreneur, I know first-hand the power and joy that comes from a mastermind class. Jodee Bock is a beautiful human being, inspired leader/encourager, and I HIGHLY recommend her. Any group or course you take with Jodee WILL change your trajectory to straight up!”
-- Bryce Niemiller, Founder, Elevate Rock School, Fargo, ND
“The absolute best training I have been a part of in all my years here. The mindset presented is right along the lines that I feel we try to do with our staff and clients. Our clients come to us broken and oftentimes without direction. Through conversation, guidance and a safe place to reset that spark in their lives, we foster and encourage and build safety planning for those unforeseen situations. And our staff are our family. Those we want to invest in because we see their kindness and purity and generosity. We want them to move forward and reach goals and make their world what they want. This just gives us an even better foothold and platform to grow and challenge the world around us. Again, thank you. Awesome!! Uplifting … thought-provoking and all of those good words.”
-- Jill McDonald, DVCC, Minot, ND
“Jodee Bock spoke at our IT Summit. She was able to ‘read the room’ and get interaction from a group that consists mostly of introverts. She found a balance of getting participation and also keeping the audience at ease and receptive to the message. The message about perception and perspective to see other points of view was very appropriate for our group since we are frequently asked to build features and need to work with the users to help with the implementation. Jodee did a great job of engaging the audience and tying the message together for practical use. Thanks, Jodee!”
