Rodney Jackson founded The Caleb Consulting Group, an organizational development firm with a mission to build influential leaders and align organizations to get better results.  Rodney is credentialed by the International Coach Federation, with ten years of evidence-based coaching, primarily with executives, directors, and managers.   He brings two decades of experience as a highly effective facilitator of groups, providing innovative approaches that allow groups to quickly identify problems and develop plans to execute upon.  Using proven methods of adult learning, participants are always fully engaged, reflective, and able to take what they’ve learned immediately back to work.

Although Rodney’s approach differs based on the specific needs of the client, most of his work involves coaching leaders to build trust and create a more compelling vision that others are willing to follow, thereby producing greater results.  Clients learn to have more authentic and productive conversations that increase their own spheres of influence. 

Prior to starting his own consulting practice in 2006, Rodney’s career included roles as Executive Director, Training and Organizational Effectiveness Director, Human Resources Director, and National Training Manager.  His work crosses many sectors, including technology, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, animal science, medical devices, insurance, defense, and faith-based organizations.  His work has taken him to Asia, Europe, Australia, and 30 states locally. 

In addition, Rodney has a passion for equipping our next generation of leaders, especially those involved in engineering and science fields, where human relations skills are seldom taught. For the past seven years, he has been adjunct faculty with the University of California, San Diego, teaching skills of building personal influence for these new leaders, and at Cornell University’s program for current leaders in animal science fields.
