Name: Jodi Low
Age (optional): 47
Occupation: Founder and CEO of U & Improved, a leadership training and development company
Why you chose to work in your field: I love inspiring people to see their greatness, and to experience what it feels like to live “all in”! When I can speak to or train companies and watch their teams emerge more unified, and more passionate, that is what lights me up!
What I like most about what I do: Watching the ah-ha moments occur and hearing the “you won’t believe what we’ve accomplished since attending U & Improved!” Those moments, and those authentic, heartfelt stories, are the BEST!
Where did you come from: Binghamton, NY
If I had picked a different occupation it might have been: I don’t have the talent for it at all, however if I did, I would love to be a singer or dancer...some kind of entertainer.
What is a challenging aspect of your job? It’s difficult for people and companies to understand the impact of what we do until they actually experience our classes. Once they do, they immediately see and feel the impact, so there is a lot of trust that new clients have to have with us, and I don’t take that lightly. My team and I ALWAYS strive to over-deliver, and I feel like we do a good job of that.
People who inspired me (and how): My paternal grandparents really instilled the value of compassion in me...always reminding me, since a young child, to think of others and how I can help and serve other human beings to make their lives brighter. Other people whom I don’t know, yet whom I admire immensely are Princess Diana, Ellen DeGeneres and Michelle Obama. Strong women with giving hearts...
One thing I want my clients to know about me: U & Improved truly delivers life and business-changing training and development, and I will always give 100% to be certain that our clients have an outstanding experience!
My advice to today’s youth: You can be, do and have anything you want in this world as long as you work hard, believe in yourself and are kind and compassionate toward yourself and other people. I say this same phrase to my two daughters every single night at bedtime because it’s what I want to anchor in for them as their truth before they venture out into the world on their own!
