While working for a local law firm early in her career, Jodi Standke saw the need to shift the employee experience and help law firms deliver a more personal touch. She launched legal recruiting company Talon Performance Group in 1999, with a commitment to help law firms reduce employee attrition by diving deep into culture. In the ensuing years, Standke’s Bloomington-based firm has expanded its services to include executive coaching, consultation on culture and people, career navigation, and peer group circles for professionals across the industry. Standke facilitates a program through the Minnesota Small Business Administration designed to empower local small business owners. She also provides one-on-one career coaching to individuals.
