Working with Jodie Brenton
Jodie is known among colleagues and employees as a compassionate, caring and highly empathetic leader, with these qualities giving her the ability to inspire and move people to come together and achieve success in the face of adversity. Everything Jodie does is centred around helping people. She works to provide the Life Resolutions team with the skills and tools needed to provide the best mental health care.
One of the biggest challenges Jodie has faced in her career is helping educate the industry on the importance of commercialising the thinking to deliver better quality services and care.
Listening, learning, and improving have been the essential skills that have allowed Jodie to achieve what she has in her work with Life Resolutions and in her own life. In the face of opposition, a focus on these qualities has allowed her to keep a very ‘human’ and ‘people first’ approach in an industry that is centred on caring for people.
Anyone who has worked with Jodie knows that she is extremely hard working and expects her team to follow suit. She is also known to be very approachable, and always knows how to lighten the situation, have a laugh, and can understand when it is time to take a break and recharge.
