Meet Brian from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.
The one word that best describes Brian's life today is "Busy." The reason Brian chose this word is because of the full schedule that comes with raising 4 children with his bride and managing multiple projects.
If Brian could change one thing in the world, he would "Create uncommitted time in his schedule so that he will have more free time." The way he will go about making this change is by saying no more often.
One year from today, Brian would like to be more settled about what the next 8 years will look like in his life.
If Brian's life were a movie, it would be about a man who devotes his life helping other people achieve all God has called them to be. The title of Brian's movie would be called "Present & Productive."
I met Brian several years ago while we worked together at the same organization. We haven't seen each other for quite a while so it was great catching up while sitting on the benches at Main Beach as the sun was setting.
When I first met Brian, I instantly knew he was a leader worth learning from. At the time, Brian was the Lead Pastor of a very large church in California and was a leader of leaders whom he was coaching to grow their churches and improve the quality of their lives.
Over the years, I've spent time with Brian as we were being trained and equipped as coaches. We've had long conversations about life and leadership while running the river trails of Bend Oregon. Brian has persevered through many challenges and changes. He has remained steadfast and has built a thriving coaching practice that reaches far and wide.
Brian is a master communicator and engages you in an authentic and personal way. His ability to ask good questions, draw out your answers and put them into a context that makes complete sense, is a gift. It's not a surprise that the name of Brian's company is called Context Coaching.
Today was a treat for me to spend time with Brian and learn what he's learning all the while, walking away enriched. Thanks Brian for allowing me to share a small slice of your story with our community.
