Brian Bogert is a human behavior and performance coach who teaches clients to leverage self-awareness and intentionality to become the most authentic version of themselves: Who they already are. Brian helps executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and growth-minded individuals learn this transformative approach that cultivates perspective, motivation, and direction to help them align their lives with their true purpose and defy their own expectations. He teaches not just to accept change, but to embrace pain in order to avoid suffering. Brian learned the wisdom of resiliency through his own early experiences with pain: When he was just seven years old, Brian’s left arm was severed in an automobile accident. Instead of succumbing to suffering because of the injury, he fully recovered and flourished with a reattached arm, and he learned early how to move beyond what happened to him by creating an intentional mindset.
