I was introduced to Jody as a Life Coach several months into my retirement. She was a wonderful help to me as I struggled to make this season meaningful. Jody came alongside me with an attentive ear, insight and kindness with professionalism. She helped me “unpack” the rewarding possibilities that were awaiting me. I am currently engaging retirement with more confidence and direction because of her personalized attentiveness and care.

Jody empowered me to move forward in a purposeful way when faced with my empty nest. She is a thoughtful listener, gently helping to focus my thoughts and identify new goals. Together we developed a doable, organized plan that suited my strengths and personality. Time spent with Jody is joyful and productive!

I began working with Jody at a time when I was wondering what I was going to do in that “next stage” of my life. Little did I know at that time I would go through many life changes. What started out as a life coach relationship quickly became a lifeline relationship. Jody’s wisdom and encouragement along with her faith and devotion to Christ have been quite literally life-saving for me. No matter where you are in life, Jody is an amazing coach to walk with you and guide you through whatever life may throw at you.

The enneagram in parenting workshop was so helpful in learning how to parent each of my kid’s unique personalities. I left feeling excited to try new parenting techniques and empowered to be a better mom to my kids. Jody sparked great conversation within the group, and we were all able to learn from each other. It was a fun night!

Natalie Hopper

Our employees raved about the workshop, stating it “helped me see why certain clients get to me” and “now I understand why I tend to react a certain way when stressed.” Several employees have expressed feeling more aware of how they communicate and relate to others, not just at work but also with other relationships. If you are hoping to build stronger communication and trust within your teams, you will want to talk to Jody Cates about her workplace workshop.
