Who is Jodie Rogers

Jodie Rogers is a coach, facilitator and skills trainer guiding professionals, individuals and corporate teams who need clarity, momentum and greater self-awareness to enable change to happen. A renowned business and lifestyle speaker and consultant in global companies, helping people demystify the workings of the mind and unlock latent potential. Her work is underpinned by 15 years of experience, science and empirical evidence as she works with clients to identify, explain and remove their ‘mindset’ obstacles and equip and inspire them to be braver in achieving ambitions in life and in work. In short, she helps people at life crossroads, career crossroads and workplace ‘standstills’ to find their purpose and act on it.

Jodie’s background is in Psychology and inter-personal communications. As well as working at Unilever as a consumer behaviour researcher and global insights manager, Jodie has worked with British Airways, Virgin Media, Reckitt Benckiser, Barclays and many other large corporations. She has guided their teams on the psychology of decision making, influence and communication and how to use this to understand consumer behaviour and apply it to business. In other words, how to understand the human mind, how we interact, what motivates us and what holds us back. She is a skilled qualitative research (conducting research in 27 markets and personally traveling to 63) and an accredited practitioner in Daniel Goleman’s Emotional & Social intelligence inventory.

What drives Jodie?
“We spend one-third of our life working. So it’s an understatement to say that we should strive to enjoy what we do, be energized by our work and have a greater sense of meaning and purpose as a result of it. But it’s not always the case, it’s my mission to change that. I faced my own ‘direction dilemma’ in 2010. I left the safety of corporate life to travel Central America alone, found inspiration in the wildest places and most diverse characters and returned determined to devote my time to helping others become unstuck. Those decisions felt like huge risks, but they were true to my own sense of purpose, and we should never ignore the role of purpose in making big life decisions. I speak regularly on business and lifestyle platforms and bring my personal stories and those of my clients to prove that given the right guidance and with the right mindset, we CAN make change happen.”

Intelligent Impact: Do your colleagues see you the way you see yourself?

This week I want to look where we can work harder on our ‘impact’ at work. It can be very confronting to receive feedback, especially if it’s ‘360’ (feedback from a number of different people), especially when it shows that perhaps you aren’t being ‘received’ quite as you intended! Look around you: are certain colleagues brimming […]
