AWESOME speaker and extremely motivational with a fun, humorous, interesting, insightful delivery! I enjoyed his 2 sessions taught at our Amarillo TRAPS Regional convention, Transformational Leadership and Building an Effective Team! I so wish he could help us develop our summer camp team/staff! I left feeling optimistic and armed with some good ideas on how to make changes in my own little niche, my own small community center. Highly recommended!
Jody thanks for your facilitation, insight and inspiration through the Leading Age Texas Conference! I've had the pleasure of hearing you present on multiple occasions and I always leave with something new. Thanks for sharing your passions and gifts!
I remember the first day I was a supervisor. I had been friends with the people I was now going to supervise. That moment that I crossed the threshold from coworker to supervisor, the view my friends had of me changed. It wasn't that I changed. I hadn't even had the chance to change. It was that they began to see me differently, as a threat, or an outsider. That was the moment I vowed that I would learn all I could about managing and leading others. The book is the culmination of my experiences in coaching supervisors, managers, and leaders since 1994. I have taken the things that work and get results and distilled them into a book that is easy to understand, easy to read, and readily applicable in any industry. In this book, you learn the 12 core skills of a great leader, the difference between leading and managing, and how to continue to enhance your leadership journey.

Every leader in business or life today has to learn how to develop into their greatest potential. The word "Evo" represents a continuous growth toward success. In this book, you will learn the skills of an evolved leader. Choosing to master these skills will likely mean the difference between a lifetime of leadership success or continuous frustration. If you are looking at this book now, I believe that you are the kind of person that truly desires to make a difference in the world and in your organization. You will learn... --How to create a rhythm of success for your life --How to communicate in such a way that others are virtually hypnotized by your style --How to turn your team and your customers into evangelists for your cause --What the stages of leadership evolution are and how to recognize where you and your team are now --How to become truly magnetic as a leader, so that others cannot help but follow you --How to create clarity of thought and action with your teams --How to create accountable and engaged followers --And, how to solidify the transformation of your organization By learning the key skills of an evolved leader, you will be able to replicate your own success by developing these skills in your managers and team. There is a rhythm that each of us falls into with our lives. Bruce Lee talked about this rhythm in his book The Tao of Jeet Kune Do. We can create a rhythm of success or a rhythm of failure for our lives, but we will have a rhythm either way. Each of us must master the progression of learning from unconsciously unskilled to consciously unskilled to consciously skilled to the highest level... unconsciously skilled. The objective is to make your success characteristics a natural extension of who you are. This book is a practical guide that will get you where you want and need to be in order to attain success at your highest level in life. As you read this book, get an image in your mind of the leader that is perfect. Take a moment to blend that picture of the perfect leader with the picture of you living into your highest self. Once you have created your image of personal success, focus on living into that image and becoming the person that you are truly capable of being. That is my desire for you, that you live into your most evolved version of self.

Judo, in its origin, was about the redirection of negative energy into one's chosen outcomes. It is more than physical self-defense, though. It is a way of thinking about life, challenges, and obstacles.
In My Judo Life, the main character, Cody Stephenson, takes us through the challenges that life throws at us in a way that helps expand our possibilities for success. His struggles end up being the very thing he needs in order to live the life he has always wanted. Not everything that is a struggle ends up being negative.

Living a Judo Life is about facing your challenges head-on and using the momentum of the challenge itself to propel yourself and your success to much higher levels.
