About Jay Johnson

In an effort to understand himself and his actions, Jay Johnson fell in love with the study of human behavior. Jay knew he had a fierce competitive drive from his early days of hockey, college debate, and mixed martial arts. However, Jay learned quickly that this may not always produce the most effective behaviors in leadership and business. He had to learn to manage his drives, but how could he find a way to choose the best behavior for a particular circumstance? The journey of behavioral exploration began.

Today, Jay has established himself as a premier expert in behavioral intelligence and managing people. His passion is to help people #BehaveIntelligently, which he believes could help the world solve its most daunting challenges. Jay’s delivery style is engaging and fun. Audiences receive immediately usable skills to build stronger relationships, enhance influence, and overcome their challenging behaviors.

Together we can overcome difficult people and behaviors, transforming the way people communicate, engage, and lead.

“By focusing on behavior, businesses can benefit from a better understanding of their customers, their employees and, ultimately, their organizational culture.” – Jay Johnson, Forbes 2021
