Ira Webbe Jr. MBA (Coach Ira) created the process called Journey Of Champions™ (JOC) from his “Psychology Of Sports” course that he taught as an adjunct professor @ Nyack College.

Being around a DII athletic department for 7 years, Coach Ira witnessed programs being built from scratch and the efforts taken to affect buy-in and mental strength.

Through what was learned from those experiences and his Performance Psychology knowledge base, Coach Ira boiled down all that insight into a simple, evidence-based yet conversational model that is easy for coaches to embed within their programs – The Core 4 Sequence®.

He has earned a B.A. in Psychology & an M.B.A. with a specialization in Sport Psychology.

“I’m all about trying new things outside of my comfort zone. I’ve tried mountain biking (not that good), surfing (need more work), golfing (too stressful), deep-sea fishing (didn’t have the stomach), camping (I loved that!) and even some things that I still have to do. I got the list. In December 2009 I took a comedy class and did a stand-up routine…twice! Anxiety provoking but I did it!”

“I’m also working on finding my writing voice through the blogs I write for this site. The blog has 3 categories: Faith, Excellence, and Leadership, and those 3 categories together is equated to One Mile – I’m attempting to blog for 1,000 miles.
The journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step, right? I’m not an excellent writer but I’m working on it. Check some of the blog posts…see you inside!
