Jody Bickel

Founder, Chief Coach & CEO


For more than 25 years, Coach Jody Bickel, Founder and CEO of Creekbank Associates, has coached sustainability leaders to achieve their most important goals. Jody is deeply passionate about empowering sustainability leaders to break-through the circumstances that hold them back from achieving their full potential. Her goal is to build strong 1-1 connections with sustainability leaders she coaches so they become even more successful than they’ve been in the past. 

Jody says: “I’ve had a vibrant connection to Nature since I was a child. My daily walks are both a source  of peace and a push to do more good. For years, I struggled to make an impact on the natural environment by working inside organizations, companies and even consultancies that focus on Nature-based Solutions. If there’s one lesson I’ve learned, it’s this: no one can do this alone. The problems that we face are too big, too intransigent and too systemic for any one person to solve on their own. That’s a recipe for burn-out. That’s why my mission is to make my greatest impact by empowering others to make their greatest impact. Every day, I bring my insights, experience and commitment to bear for sustainability leaders across the globe.”

Jody Bickel makes that impact today through two types of services. She works directly with sustainability leaders by offering coaching services that include Sustainability Outcomes Visioning, Communications Coaching, Project And Initiative Coaching, Teams Coaching and Leader Coaching.

Jody also leads the Creekbank Associates’ team of experts to offer technical services that include Strategic Business And Project Solutions For Ecological & Sustainability Issues, Environmental Performance For Compliance & Voluntary Programs, Environmental Mitigation & Restoration, Stakeholder Engagement Process & Project Management and Messaging Solutions.

Jody serves as an advisor to the Global Environmental Markets and Finance Summit and the Environmental Markets Conference. She is a member of the Soil and Water Conservation Society, the Society for Ecological Restoration, the International Society of Sustainability Professionals, the Ecological Restoration Business Association, the American Chemical Society, the American Exploration and Mining Association and other industry specific organizations.
