    Scott Uhlenhake

    Vice President / Community Loan Officer at First United Bank

    Truly enjoyed this experience(Intentional Living MasterMind Group)... If you are looking to develop yourself as a leader or person, I highly recommend coaching sessions with Brawn Lide! Brawn is truly gifted in this area and will definitely add value to your life.

    Brian Davis

    Owner Freshine Window Cleaning

    What Brawn does changes lives. We're grateful for everything he’s done to help us grow. His programs have helped us become better listeners and leaders in our professional and personal lives. Thank you Brawn, you're a great man!

    Account Manager

    Brawn's passion for helping people is very evident in his coaching style. Even though I have been a student of personal growth for 15 yrs, Brawn was able to expose me to new techniques and self-discoveries that have been transformational to me.

    RD/LD, Nutrition Community Consultant

    Brawn's impressive knowledge of leadership and personality training along with his ability to deliver the material in an easy to understand and fun way, was priceless for us. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a top quality trainer and speaker.”

    Host and Creator of The Daytripper on PBS, Attorney, Dream Catcher.

    I can't speak highly enough of Brawn's coaching and how it has empowered me to get the most out of every aspect of my life, including my career. As the owner of a production company and the face of a successful TV show, life is busy. Very busy. I can easily get caught in the endless cycle of business fire drills and draining deadlines. However, Brawn's coaching helps me break the cycle and gain invaluable perspective so that I can run my business, rather than have my business run me. His coaching helps me attack every day with intention and purpose and has been a catalyst for game-changing growth. I can't recommend him enough

    Executive Director for H.A.N.D.

    Brawn provided a leadership mastermind for our staff along with personal coaching for me. Within 2 sessions, there was a significant change in the confidence, thinking, and energy of our staff. I highly recommend him both in a corporate and personal setting with individuals and groups. The outcomes are amazing!

    Area Director at Fellowship of Christian Athletes

    I recently met Brawn through a friend. I have heard his name around town and have been intrigued by his profession. 2 weeks ago he invited me to be apart of a group of men who would be growing through John Maxwell's "The 15 Irrefutable Laws of Growth." It's amazing the growth that can occur with a little intentionality and effort. If you haven't already sought out Brawn to become your Life Coach, I would do it now!

    Lead UI Designer

    Brawn has an amazing talent in asking those insightful questions that lead you to be able to step back and clearly see a bigger and more exciting picture.

    Sara Orellanna

    Executive Director at Cities In Schools

    Before working with Brawn, I was struggling with my leadership skills . It was really frustrating and discouraging. I lacked hope and motivation. In the past 11 months of working together, I have been stretched personally and professionally, allowing me to grow as a person. I have been able to clear away the cobwebs of preconceived ideas and notions, to clearly see the full range of my potential. It is amazing what a clear vision can give you, a true sense of hope rooted in the knowledge that personal growth is a very real possibility. Brawn supported and guided me every step along the way. Through participation in master mind groups, personal coaching sessions and attending the L2 trainings, I have been able to embark on a journey that resulted in stronger leadership that grew my organization. I couldn't have done it without Brawn - Thank YOU!

    Becoming a Person of Influence

    How to positively impact those around you

    Everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high-profile occupation to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do – at home, at work or at play – has an impact on the lives around you. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster; you can be more effective; and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence.

    15 Invaluable Laws of Growth

    Live them and reach your potential

    The deepest desire within you is simply to reach your true potential—to become the person you were created to be. Now you can act on that desire as never before and jump-start your journey forward—with The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth

    Everyone Communicates Few Connect

    Connecting increases your influence in every situation

    If you can connect with others – one on one, in groups and with an audience – your sense of community improves; your ability to create teamwork increases; and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.

    REAL Success

    Learn the four elements to R.E.A.L. success

    Success is not a destination. It is a process – a lifelong strategy of building on strengths, minimizing weaknesses, and focusing on the people and points of life that are most important. How to be a REAL Success, will help you understand the keys you need to succeed in life. Whether you are a civil servant or a corporate executive, you will achieve great things by understanding four very important success building areas: Relationships, Equipping, Attitude, and Leadership.

    Developing the Leaders Around You

    How to help others reach their full potential

    Supremely practical, this training is crammed with strategies that help you effectively transform your dreams into reality by building up your people.  Emphasizing that your organization can't grow until its members grow, encouraging you to identify and train potential leaders. You'll learn how to foster productive team spirit, how to make difficult decisions, what to look for in promising leaders, ways to nurture, encourage, and equip people, how to handle confrontation, and much more.

    Put Your Dream to the Test

    Don't leave your dream to chance

    Whether you've lost sight of an old dream or you are searching for a new one within you, Put Your Dream to the Test provides a step-by-step action plan that you can start using today to see, own, and reach your dream. This course will expertly guide you through the ten questions required of every successful dreamer.

    "It's one thing to have a dream. It's another to do the things needed to acheive it, " says Maxwell. "If you're willing to put your dream to the test - and do what's needed to answer yes to the ten dreams questions - then your odds are very good for seeing your dream become reality."

    Don't leave your dream to chance. This curriculum is a must-have and can make the difference between failure and success.
