My most valuable takeaway from working with Jodie was her ability to help me break down seemingly complex or intimidating situations. Instead of simply reacting, I learned to have the confidence to slow things down and make intentional decisions. We also achieved multiple goals in a short time from my “wish list”. Very happy with the experience, highly recommended.
I had such a good session with Jodie. She really took the time to make sure she understood what I wanted to work on and what she could help with. She asked some questions that I really needed to think about but had been avoiding, but she did so gently and with respect and encouragement… it actually opened up a whole new area that I hadn’t even thought about! I had a great vibe from her and I came away buzzing from the session. If you’re setting up your own business/project or thinking of switching careers, I would definitely recommend giving her a try. I wasn’t thinking about getting a long-term coach, but after my session, I’m trying to see how I can set aside some money to work with her! I really think it will boost my new business much more than I could ever do on my own. I felt like Jodie truly cared and wanted the best for me, and having that support is fantastic. It’s what sets you apart from other people, having someone on your side like that!

I was at a major cross road in my life. I had been with the same company for 18 years – doing a job that I was good at but did not see or realize the value I was bringing to the organization. I was drowning in the toxic environment and energy around me. My spouse and I had discussed me moving to Calgary but had not finalized a date for my move. I was happy but not happy at the same time. I felt like I was living two lives and also functioning in a holding pattern as well. I was STUCK!
I believe in the power of the Universe and went looking for guidance in how to move my life forward in the direction that I wanted. That is when I found Jodie! At the time, I had NO idea that she lived in Calgary. I knew it was the Universe bringing our paths to cross because how could someone living on the East Coast find a life coach living in the City of Calgary – the very city I was planning on moving to!
Upon my first interaction with Jodie, I could sense that this was a connection that was going to leave a positive mark on my life. I looked forward to our weekly meetings via telephone and in person. I looked forward to the challenges that I was faced with and being held accountable on finding the answers instead of just pushing them aside.
I am ‘thankful’ for being able to work with Jodie – she was supportive while asking the hard questions and causing me to dig deep to find the answers within. She helped me set goals, timelines and see the value that I held within.
As Jodie and I had discussed, I will be finishing my 18 year career and moving to Calgary at the end of 2015. I will be starting 2016 in a new city full of hope and possibilities as this new chapter of my life unfolds. I have no idea what the future holds but I do know that I am holding the pen and control what I get to write in this next chapter – the pages are blank, fresh and new!

My path ended up crossing with Jodie’s at a time when I felt like I was turning in circles and standing still all at the same time. It had been a year since I had left behind a career that I no longer felt excited about and I had made little progress in figuring out what was next for me. I was beginning to feel very overwhelmed by my feelings of uncertainty. I was unsure of where or how to direct my energies moving forward to the next chapter of my life. At the time, the Universe must have been listening and thankfully I was listening to the Universe. Because along came Jodie!!
She is an amazing person with a very understanding and giving nature. She was invested in helping me to navigate my way through the fog and come out the other side with a clear idea of where I wanted to focus my energies. Her insights helped me to filter through and conquer a lot of my uncertainties.
Hands down, without a doubt, I am grateful that Jodie came into my life and that she is the person/cheerleader/coach that she is! I am very appreciative for all her support and encouragement along the way!

I came into my first session with Jodie with an open mind and spirit but was a little skeptical as to how anyone could “really” help me to find out what my true path in life should be.
I was very surprised and impressed that within just one session, Jodie had guided me to reflect upon my true passions in life but more importantly, how these activities that I enjoy could be tweaked and taken to the next level in terms of a new career.
A fire has been lit inside of me and I have not felt this excited about a project in a long time!
Thank you Jodie for your openness, reflective learning and great introspection.
I have never felt so confident that my dreams will soon be realized and feel lucky knowing that I will be loving and living life to its fullest (instead of simply going on with my day to day routine).
Thank you for having shown me that one can find passion and fulfillment in their work!
This was the first step that I needed to take so that I can love what I do and do what I love 🙂

Jodie’s winning spirit gives her clients the confidence that they have hired the “right coach”. I am impressed with her ability to uncover the moving parts that are within each of us; and push them to the fore. This in turn creates a positive synergy that drives action. I trust Jodie with my goals and simply because I am certain that with a little time, they WILL grow results!

Working with Jodie was the first experience I had working with a coach. I found her presence to be amazing. I immediately felt comfortable and safe to share my issues and quickly discovered some of the underlying beliefs that were holding me back from living my most authentic life. I just want to say thanks again for everything and I’m still loving my new bold look!

I knew from the very beginning of my work with Jodie that she was truly passionate about coaching. Blanketed in the warmth of her care, the answers from my heart freely bubbled to the surface. Her intuitive and powerful questions helped me discover new insights into what I really wanted. If you desire to learn about yourself and move towards your greatest dreams, call Jodie now!

Jodie studied at World Coach Institute at which I served as one of her Instructors. I found her to be skillful and innately sensitive in her ability to Coach both within her niche and outside of it. She is a very competent Coach who possesses the most important characteristics: skill/mastery over core competencies as recognized by the I.C.F., intelligence, an above average intuition, and a genuine caring. I feel confident her future clients will be well served by entering into a professional coaching relationship with Jodie Hebbard.
