Effectively Living and Working Within a Diverse World
In today’s diverse work, our professional and personal experiences often require us to work effectively with diverse populations – whether that diversity is economic, racial, gender, etc. This unique training will allow participants to become conscience of and better understand their personal experiences while also being open to the complexities of other’s experiences.
Participants leave with a very practical understanding of how to work effectively with diverse populations to help them better manage, supervise, or volunteer within their organizations or communities. Contact Jodi’s office at 612-339-5217 to schedule this presentation.
Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities
This workshop is a comprehensive approach to understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic level. Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty.
Participants will review poverty research, examine a theory of change, and analyze poverty through the prism of the hidden rules of class, resources, family structure, and language. Throughout the workshop, participants will receive specific strategies for improving outcomes for people living in poverty, but the focus of the workshop is to provide a broad overview of concepts. Learn about proven concepts, strategies and approaches. This training assists employers, community organizations, social service agencies, and individuals gain insight and strategies.

Applying Bridges out of Poverty
This workshop is designed to take the constructs introduced in the Bridges Out Of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities workshop and begin embedding the constructs. Time will be given during the workshop to think about changes that can be made to break down barriers that are sustaining poverty within an agency, organization, and community. Participants will learn more about: language experience, cognitive issues, barriers to change; how to use mental models to communicate effectively; how to assist clients from poverty to learn quickly, explore options, and develop future stories; skills of mediation; relationship building and Mentoring.
Applying Bridges Concepts also introduces strategies for changing program designs, policies, and procedures to improve outcomes. Participants will use case studies and an examination of the client’s lifecycle to identify principles of change.

Strategic Planning for Organizations and Communities
This training helps the team of your choice (an entire staff, community or management team) examine the current reality and create a future reality. Jodi helps participants verbalize their passions, skills and sense of urgency to help create a three-year strategic plan to achieve that future goal. The plan is broken down to one-year objectives as well as 90-day work plan so participants leave with clear action items to accomplish their three-year vision.
