Brian is excited to be part of the CRG team helping organizations improve their culture of connectivity, competency, and credibility. With an evidence-based framework at the core, CRG’s suite of assessments powers the ability to move forward in life from basic self-awareness to a self-empowered level of embracing personal leadership and responsibility. This trajectory is achieved by moving through a continuum of personal style literacy toward the goal of style fluency. Through that journey, individuals come to better understand their style strengths and to appreciate those of others. Brian’s motto, “Be more than just yourself, be your best self – growth is the goal, life is in the striving”, guides balancing his other important roles of husband, father, grandfather (“bubba”), and fan of country music.
