Every single high-achieving individual has been stuck, frustrated, unsure, and angry as they start feeling their efforts barely move the needle forward on progress. They know they have much greater potential, yet they fall short of the end zone repeatedly.
Brian teaches leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals how to be acutely aware of their environmental conditioning, emotional triggers, and behavioral patterns, giving them a deep understanding of why they think and feel the way they do. This provides the framework for intentionally dismantling old emotional and intellectual narratives that limit their performance in the workplace and at home, thus enabling them to become who they already are- their most authentic selves. Brian’s inside/out methodology is a proven roadmap to ease the journey to self-realization. He ensures professionals understand the difference in using their time not in minutes but with INTENTION. He opens the door to perspective, motivation, and direction by sharing with leaders how to reprogram their brains, defy their own negative thinking, and how to stop making excuses. When we become who we are, we unlock what is within and leave “good enough” behind us.
Brian learned the wisdom of resiliency through his own early experiences with pain. As a child, he was run over by a truck, and his left arm was detached from his body. Instead of succumbing to suffering because of the injury, Brian embraced the pain necessary to fully recover and flourish with a reattached arm, thanks to his persistent and proactive focus. As a human behavior and performance coach, speaker, and business strategist, Brian disrupts the normative approach on how to create sustainable growth and lasting change personally and professionally. His philosophies on “how to embrace the pain to avoid suffering,” “people before profits,” and “who before what” has helped individuals and companies discover and activate their limitless potential. Brian and his team lead intentionally as they are driven by their vision to impact a billion lives by 2045.
