Hello! I’m Jodie Benveniste, a psychologist, author, and TEDx speaker.

I have over 20 years’ experience as a psychologist, author and speaker helping people to make long lasting changes in their lives. And this is what I’ve noticed:

Change can be elusive. We may know that we need to change, and even want to change…but that doesn’t guarantee that change will happen. Why can it be so difficult?

The answer, I’ve discovered, is simpler than we think.

To understand how to change, we need to understand our Selves.

A model for meaningful change.

Most of us don’t have an accurate and effective framework for understanding our Selves. That means that we don’t have access to our full capacity to change.

We actually all have the resources within us to move past our blocks, bring the most beneficial qualities to more moments, and operate from a place of calm confidence.

But we need a framework that helps us to understand and tap into these resources. That’s what Self Leadership is all about.

It’s a powerful way to understand your Self so you can live from a place of confidence, compassion and clarity.

That’s why I teach groups and individuals how to embrace and embody Self Leadership.

It’s more than self management. It’s Self Leadership.

What is Self Leadership?

Self Leadership is a powerful framework to understand your Self so you can live from a place of confidence, compassion, and clarity.

Step 01

You discover the framework you need for true Self understanding

Step 02

You bridge the gap between insight (I know what I need to do) and action (I’m doing it)

Step 03

You learn how to create meaningful and lasting change in your life

Self Leadership bridges the gap between insight and action.
