They say that actions speak more and louder than words.  It only follows that if you want to judge Jodi Standke’s character, you look at more than what she says; you look at what she does.  Instead of complaining about the lack of effective leadership at law firms, Jodi did something about it.  She evolved her traditional placement and talent management practice to include leadership development, business development, competency modeling, and emotional intelligence assessments.  Today that organization is called Talon Performance Group.  Jodi is an advocate for the profession and frequently shares her knowledge through publishing, presenting seminars, and giving keynote addresses on management and leadership.  She has been recognized with a myriad of awards, including the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Women to Watch; Finance & Commerce’s 40 Minnesotans on the Move; the National Association of Women Business Owners Illuminary Award; and the Business Builder Award presented by Upsize Minnesota. And to that list we congratulate Jodi on becoming a member of the College of Law Practice Management.
