CEO ActionCOACH Team Sage
Miami native, Jody Johnson, has dedicated her life to making an impact on the community around her. It was this dedication to making a difference that led her to co-found what is now South Florida’s leading business coaching firm, ActionCOACH Team Sage, in 2006. Together with her partner, Douglas Barra, Jody established the vision for her team – transforming the economic landscape of South Florida – and has devoted her time, energy, and passion to working with local business owners to help them prosper.
Recognizing the economic changes in our community Jody has put together a team of experts to make sure that small businesses are ready for the wave of opportunity coming their way. “We have a window of about two years to be fully prepared for the massive changes in our community. With the opening of the Panama Canal, the Port of Miami expansion and upgrades, the Miami Airport expansion, the Metrorail expansion and the Florida East Coast Railway expansion the public sector is getting ready for the increase of commercial growth in Florida with Miami at the center, the hub of this growth. If your business is ready, the opportunity for massive growth and wealth building will be at your feet, if not, then be prepared to be swept aside by those who are. ”
Jody guarantees client results and under Jody’s watchful guidance, businesses throughout South Florida – everything from professional services and retailers to logistics companies and manufacturers – have experienced record growth despite the down economy.
Jody is only able to help her clients achieve these results because she truly understands the importance of working on herself, and building her skills and knowledge base to then pass along to her clients. In order to expand her ActionCOACH firm’s offerings, Jody became a Certified Coach with Gazelle’s International, trained to lead Mastering the Rockefeller Habits 4 Decisions Workshops, a program designed to address the 4 critical areas of people, strategy, execution and cash flow, unique to rapidly growing companies (>20% growth). Jody is consistently ranked in the top 10% of coaches within the ActionCOACH community (among 1300+) both nationally and worldwide and is a Fellow at the International Business Coaching Institute.
When Jody isn’t busy working with her clients and growing ActionCOACH Team Sage, she dedicates her time to pursuing her many passions. She mentors young women, and works with other organizations close to her heart through Coaching for a Cause, ActionCOACH’s philanthropic arm that assists non-profits in growing the business aspect of their cause.
Closest to Jody’s heart though, is her family. As the oldest of six she loves spending time with her son, Ron Jon, her husband Douglas Barra, her partner in business and in life and her extensive family. When she’s not busy with her work or family, you can find Jody sailing, reading, studying, cooking, entertaining or somewhere in the community making a difference.
