MOTIVATIONAL Speaking, Training and COaching
J2 Leadership Team
Welcome, we're glad you're here.
Hi, I'm Jay Johnson, Owner and President of J2 Servant Leadership, LLC, and a proud member of the John Maxwell Team. It's through the John Maxwell Team that I earned my certification as a Speaker, Trainer, Teacher, Facilitator and Coach. I'd like to briefly share a few things about me and how I can help you.
First and foremost, I want you to know I'm passionate about helping people grow professionally and personally and here's why. You see I grew up in a single parent home where there were very few expectations laid upon me and therefore I expected very little of myself. I believed life was simply about graduating from school, getting a job and then working the rest of my life making a modest living. Boy was I wrong. Life is not simply to be survived and it's not a dress rehearsal. We get one go at this thing called life and if we are going to maximize our opportunities then we must get intentional. Being intentional will require a plan and we'll need to put it into action. A plan on the shelf collects dust, but a plan put in action allows us to take charge of and lead our life.
The genesis for the change in my beliefs were a few individuals (now viewed as mentors) who entered in my life in my late teens and early twenties. These individuals genuinely wanted more for me than I wanted for myself. Luckily, their belief wasn't conditional and didn't easily waver; they also wouldn't accept or allow me to make excuses in my life. For them I'm eternally grateful.
The next big shift in my beliefs occurred in my late 40's. I found myself woefully unhappy with my job and this overflowed into every aspect of my life. Worst of all, the very people I care most about in life were affected as well and by proximity were equally unhappy. I literally built a wall up between me and them, as I sat and scanned my thoughts for a solution. I finally came to the realization that I was going to have to take accountability and action, I was going to have to choose to be happy. For me this meant putting myself in a position to utilize my gifts and quit making it all about me. There's an old saying that goes something like this, "it's hard to focus on your own challenges, when your busy serving the needs of others". You know what? It's absolutely true. My life purpose is now to help others find their purpose, and to help put them in alignment utilizing their unique gifts. I'm dedicated to helping people grow in their professional and personal lives, so they can achieve unparalleled success. I know beyond any shadow of doubt that when we grow as individuals, we help those we come in contact grow too. How do I know? Because I'm living it out daily by providing services outlined in the next paragraph.
