Hi I'm Kevin Anthony Johnson--Coach KJ for short. I educate individuals, organizations & communities in the art and science of sustainable transformation. People trust me to ask the hard questions; to challenge their assumptions and poke at the status quo. I get people engaged & talking about the vital issues and translate those conversations into transformative action. I've been in this work in varying capacities for over 15 years and I'm still learning and hungry for more knowledge about what it means to "grow up" to "be human" and "belong together." I'm a voracious reader and regularly experiment with new ideas. I like evidence-based writing, but I will go all metaphysical and "woo woo" on you in a snap--there's "evidence" for that too. I've written for the Young Professionals of Chicago, was published in Heart & Soul Magazine, former Director of The Marketplace Learning Community that hosted nearly a hundred conversations on literally everything from 2009-2012 and I'm on quite a few social media platforms since that's where the crowds are....sometimes ;-)
I'm a single father of three, minister-turned-transformation-coach, singer/songwriter and I love Chicago! I'm interested in sparking rich conversations, so read, enjoy and engage!
