It's hard to believe it's been 20 years, but time flies when you are having fun. I have been coaching and training since 1998 and have worked in corporate board rooms, the non-profit arena, institutions of higher education, and one-on-one with people all over the country. I have great insight and when my Empathy and Communication talents start working together clients frequently tell me that I am able to put their thoughts into the words they "just hadn't been able to find."
I am a life-long learner and hold national certifications through • The Gallup Association • Association for Talent Development (ATD) • Talent Smart • The Center for Teacher Effectiveness • Institute of Organization Development (IOD) • American Council on Exercise (ACE).
I have a degree in Broadcast Management from the University of Kansas and a MBA from Georgia State University. Here's a fun fact about me – I am a travel- adventure junkie and when it comes to food- the spicier the better. I am looking forward to working with you or your team to uncover your possibilities for success.

Personal HIghtlights I have been married for nearly 30 years to my wife Angela. We have five children. Since 2015, we have been living far outside the city on 72 acres where we raise grass fed Dexter beef and the kids are entrepreneuers in training managing their own egg business produced by free range chickens.
Grow with Strengths - Growing People Growing Companies As an HR professional of a rapidly growing company in 2010, I fell in love with the philosophy of Strengths. I decided to lead the efforts in building a Strengths-based organization and never looked back. I was surprised at some of the things I saw early on in the process. Very quickly, people built strong relationships at work where they gave each other the benefit of the doubt. Over time, they challenged and supported each other more. We wove Strengths into the onboarding, performance systems, and everyday conversations and meetings - people and teams grew stronger, listened more effectively, and asked for help more. We built a culture that was so strong and obvious, both internally and externally. It helped our recruiting and retention. Managers became Coaches for their teams and gave feedback in real time.
What I believe to be true: When we pause to give each other the benefit of the doubt, we open up the opportunity to connect, understand and find the true value in ourselves and others.
I take the time to get to know each individual on the team - and we all dive in together. My style is energetic and thoughtful. I believe that we learn through practice and we have a lot of fun while we’re learning. I’ve been fortunate to do work that I’ve really loved for over 30 years in HR, talent development, coaching, employee engagement, and wellness.
Here's what I do well - please let me know if I can help you and your business. 1. Develop managers into great coaches that win. 2. Build a nimble organization poised for growth and change. 3. Build the culture you want to get the results you want. 4. Keep the great talent that you worked so hard to acquire.
Here's what people are saying about working with me as a coach or facilitator:
Cindy and I worked together from 2013-2017. In that time she exposed me to the wonderful world of StrengthsFinders. It was part of our on-boarding to take the assessment and learn about our strengths. As I learned more about the strengths I have, Cindy was there to help guide me and my team through team building workshops to see how these strengths worked together across the team. Cindy is very knowledgeable in StrengthsFinders and the work we did in her workshop changed the course of our team dynamic for the better. We were able to communicate more kindly to one another and utilize our strengths appropriately in the tasks and projects we were assigned. Cindy's work is beneficial to any team whether they are in rough waters or not. They will come out better than before with Cindy leading the boat.

Small business development is our JAM! “What does a best day at work look like?” This is the question that helped us launch True Stengths in 2018 What is the answer we are ALL seeking? Profitable…..inspiring….fulfilling….ENGAGED! A place where not only do the employees want to be there- but so do the owners! How are YOU wired? That is what the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment and Gallup Business Profile 10 (BP10) , along with our coaching, is designed to help you out with. Not only will it influence WHAT you build but HOW you build it! The next BIG THING could be….and should be YOUR THING! What are YOU going to build? We would love to meet you and learn what YOU are BUILDING
My secret sauce? Yep. I have one...
1- My team strengths and expertise in different areas.
2- My leadership training and employee development programs consider the symbiotic nature of the mind-body connection and its impact on performance, leadership, and decision making. Because of this, I can guarantee that transformation in relationships, results, and revenue will happen.
3- I have learned how to access my "inner-tools." As a Mindfulness practitioner and my own personal journey to enhance my health, energy, and performance, I understand how to "hack" our biology and psychology to meet the challenge of living a "productive" life, fight back the effects of stress, and self-lead to become an effective leader. I bring those tools to a robust and whole-self training program that will shift a person and a workplace environment.
All training, coaching, and retreats for Strengthen-TheTeam™ | StrengthenHER™ | Strengthen-TheLEADERSHIP™ | Strengthen-TheSalesTeams™ and LeadershipBIOHACKING™ integrate evidence-based strengths psychology, emotional intelligence, health and wellbeing principles, alongside the neuroscience of multiple brain integration, and mindfulness.
My business mission statement: To provide our corporate and individual clients with the most powerful, innovative, cutting-edge and applicable strengths-based development program, improving ROI, relationships, and well-being to boldly influence, execute, and purposefully live.
Bottom line: I facilitate a more effective leader, interdependent collaborative team, and company-wide strengths-based culture shifts, including diversity and inclusion initiatives, that improve engagement, retention and a happier more productive workplace environment.

The question I am most often asked is, "Why do I do what I do?" The most honest response I can give is that I wish there had been a me for me when I was starting out as an entrepreneur back in 2007. I spent a lot of money on all the wrong things thinking it would magically give me the answers – or at least get me a bit closer to success. Frankly, it was frequently the opposite. And even though I knew my CliftonStrengths, I wasn’t making the most of them or using them to their advantage.
In 2015 I had a revelation. I was 42, still no closer to knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up. Couple that with a cancer scare along and a one year old little boy and whoa! It was my wake-up call, my big A-HA! I knew I had to make a change. With a good bit of reflection and honesty (with myself most of all), I realized the one thing that had stayed constant was my love for Strengths. I picked up the phone, called Gallup and 8 weeks later was in Mexico City certifying (in Spanish!) as Peru’s first and only Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.
I dream of creating a world where everyone can live to their full potential, talents aren’t wasted and happiness is contagious. As a mompreneur and expat living in Peru, I understand the challenges and rewards that both entail. When I’m not helping others boost their confidence, craft their message and create extraordinary lives, I am often found at the sewing machine, at the movies, enjoying a glass of wine with friends or horsing around with my terribly precocious little boy, affectionately known as O.

A recent organizational client shared, "I have never been a part of an exercise that seemed to get people more excited and willing to commit than Brent’s CliftonStrengths-StrengthsFinder Coaching program. I was quickly amazed at the things we were all learning about, not only our fellow managers, but also about ourselves. The most common expression from the group was "Ahaaaa! Now I understand.
It's Monday morning and instead of being excited for the week, or even excited to get out of bed, you're wishing it was still the weekend. I too have struggled with this feeling but it doesn't have to be that way. I understand what it is like to be in a job you dread...I've been in that exact position! You may think..."the problem is my manager", but sometimes it can be the way we're approaching our job responsibilities.
Allow me to coach you through your CliftonStrengths assessment results and help create a path on how to achieve your goals, whether that is becoming more engaged in your current role or starting to look for positions that align better with your talents. As a coach with Developer in their Top 5, I can see the potential in others and get excited when they overcome challenges.

As a Soar Global Strengths Evangelist I help fellow coaches scale their practice with tools and community.
As a Strengths Illuminator, my mission is to help people illuminate their strengths so that can shine their light and be a beacon for others. Everyone has talents and strengths, but not everyone is comfortable with them. I help people own their talents and strengths so they can use them for higher levels of engagement and happiness. Using the CliftonStrengths assessment, which identifies your main areas of talents, I help people connect with their strengths and give them the knowledge to leverage their strengths. I don't have all the answers; I help guide people to solutions and greater self-awareness and how to connect those things to your everyday work and personal life. As we work together toward your goals, we will have routine check-ins and conversations about your goals.
As someone who has felt lost, with their light getting dim by having my strengths dismissed, I hope to help people understand how to shine their light and be a beacon for others.
Roger is a great source for advice. I consider Roger a trusted advisor, and I highly value him as a friend as well as a mentor. Josh Case - CEO @ Energy Capital Group, LLC
Roger is one of the industry’s best when it comes to launching and accelerating startup’s growth. A few minutes of his time could provide a lifetime of valuable advice. David Przybyla, Marketing Professor at Utah Valley University
Roger is my hero for all the reasons that you also value. He keeps a very low-key profile and has a wicked-bright mind. Roger has launched, advised or invested in literally hundreds of startups. What makes Roger a role model for me is his humility and goodness. He has always extended a helping hand and advice whenever I have reached out to him. Roger is an honored member of the community and represents the values that build solid communities. Rajeev (Raj) Rawat - Author, Speaker, Consultant at Reverse the Chase Project ------------------------------- For almost three decades I've helped thousands of business owners and founders secure the content, capital, and connections they need to accelerate profitably.
I began my career as a credit analyst for one of the largest SBA lenders in the country at the time. However, in recent years, I've been coaching CEOs while growing business accelerators and incubators; more specifically helping companies to accelerate revenue growth and optimize their business models.
This passion for helping others has led to the founding of TechX - Mentored Acceleration, a cutting-edge program designed to help companies scale. So far, the TechX program has helped more than 100 companies increase combined revenues exceed $150+ million. Participants report more than $145 million in liquidity events of exits and follow-on capital infusions, with one company selling for 30X revenues. On average companies have experienced a valuation increased more than 17x. Participants strongly credit the program with helping them succeed. On a scale of 1-to-10, they rate the impact of the TechX program on their success as 8.3+.
Through the years, I've led several national commercial lending institutions, including franchise financing divisions. In 1996 I founded Commerce Capital Corporation; a venture lending company which provided funding for companies all over North America. Locally I've been actively involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem; serving in a number of organizations and Boards including the Technology Center @ Novell, the Business Development Corporation of Provo, Utah Valley University's Business Resource Center, Provo Labs Incubator, Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum, UtahAngels, Utah Angels 2, Boomstartup, and founding utahTechX.com.
Upon graduating from college, I set off on the corporate path with a career that included jobs as a corporate trainer, operations/service manager, and systems designer. Along the way I added an MBA to my resume. In the early 2000s I took a much needed career hiatus to care for my parents and children and to serve my community. During this time, I did something for me - I completed an MA in Theology (did I mention "Learner" is one of my strengths?).
After my break from the paid workforce, I decided to embark on a career where I could help people feel good about themselves ("Positivity" is also a strength). I wanted to set people on the path to self-awareness and personal improvement.
I am a Certified Gallup Strengths Coach and College Admissions Coach. I lead workshops and work one-on-one with individuals from high school through retirement helping them identify and leverage their strengths in their personal and professional lives. I also lead workshops and work with businesses and non-profits to build employee/volunteer engagement and increase job satisfaction and productivity.

Imagine a life where you spend most of your day doing what comes natural – leading from your strengths! This describes my work. I am a Gallup-Certified Strengths coach helping small business owners and Insurance Agents build strong engaged teams that maximize production.
During 26 years in the insurance industry, I studied multiple aspects of the financial services business earning designations such as Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC), and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU). I saw distinct differences in the energy and productivity levels during hundreds of agency visits and immersed myself in motivation and mentoring research culminating in a Master of Adult Education with an emphasis in Human Resource Development and Leadership. Continuing my studies with the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), I earned the Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Master Practitioner designations.
I help Insurance Agents and small business owners identify natural talents, turn talents into strengths, and focus strengths on key activities that drive profitable business outcomes. Clients identify the most productive use of their time and I help them stay focused in these key areas. One of those key ares is employee engagement! Clients cannot reach their desired level of success until they create an emotionally engaged workforce. It’s good for the company, good for customers, good for the owner, and it’s certainly good for each employee that becomes fully engaged in their work.
Life is short – uncover your talents, turn your talents into strengths, and be who you were designed to be!
