What they're saying

The presentation to our recent Best Practices conference was thought provoking, insightful, not to mention hilarious. Jody kept an audience of hard-nosed operators, and sometimes cynical human resource officers, engaged, challenged and informed about the seismic shift in workplace values that will ultimately impact everyone in the service sector. ROWE is a concept that may be slightly ahead of its time, but she is right in time to deliver the thought leadership that can change organizations.

This was a great thought-leadership session as [Jody Thompson] is ahead of the curve in HR practices. There was probably more buzz created by this – lots of conversation and debate – than any of the other 15 or so sessions at this conference. It was, without a doubt, a worthwhile addition to the conference agenda.

Jody kicked off our State SHRM Conference with great energy and thought provoking ideas for the workplace! She knew the world our members work in, and spoke to common problems we all see in organizations around separating contribution (results) and ˝time in chair˝. I would recommend Jody whole-heartedly if you want to get your audience thinking about real solutions and maximizing talent!!
— Jill Bridges, Co-chair of the Tennessee State SHRM Conference
Thank you Jody Thompson, for your brilliant facilitation of our Leadership Seminar. The buzz hasn’t stopped! Your management training is a complete game changer for today’s workforce. The philosophy of managing the work and not the people will help our organization engage the RIGHT people for the RIGHT roles and will no doubt help us reach our goal of being THE place to work. With growing expectations, the principle of completing our work when and how we need to is life changing for many.
