Who We Are

Jody Jacobson, PhD, MSBA, MS, is an internationally recognized author, consultant, executive coach, and speaker. She established the Human Skills Institute™ in 2018 to help advisors cultivate a growth mindset and the skills to deliver on it with confidence and ease.

With her strong backgrounds in business strategy, neuroscience, and learning theory, and change management,  Dr. Jacobson helps financial advisors and firm owners, and other technical business owners, create meaningful growth by optimizing their human skills and aligning their business and marketing strategies and mindsets to attract and retain ideal clients and talent.

She believes the best way to get the biggest return on growth effort (ROGE™) is to do more of the right things, not just more, more, more. Having survived a near-death experience as a child, Jody knows that each of us has the power to choose what to focus and act on—optimism or defeat, confidence or fear, strengths or weaknesses.
