The journey has been like doing back to back tough mudder courses!! F*ck me! I’ve taken a battering along the way. It’s been a guilt ridden, messy divorce fest, littlest hobo house hopping adventure (and that’s scraping the surface)!
Violet Salt is my alter ego. She’s who I wanted to be when I was a kid – the name I wanted to be called. She’s the best version of me – the 4 year old version who is fearless and invincible. She can achieve anything she sets her mind too and she has an amazing zest for life. She’s who I tap into when I need to dig deep, when the going gets tough, because it inevitably does.
IRL, I’m Jodie Salt. I have 20 years corporate learning and development experience for blue chip companies, specifically specialising in leadership development. Some of my specialist topics are in the field of assertiveness, influencing, trust and credibility and presence and personal impact. I’ve been a qualified executive coach for almost 10 years and have spent much of that time coaching senior leaders, directors and board level execs.
In corporate life that was mostly men. I was overly familiar with the lack of women in senior positions and it really pissed me off. I worked with the few women who were playing in that space, to help them navigate and break through the ‘boys club’, help them really boost their credibility in order for them to smash through the glass ceiling or help them find their true authenticity so they no longer had to play the ‘alpha-female’ bitch from hell stereotype. This is where I found my passion! I knew then that I wanted to work with women to help them be successful.
So with my own personal life experience and professional expertise I can help you get your life exactly where you want it to be.
