Be Brilliant – Enjoy the Journey with Brent O’Bannon, Gallup Certified Coach
32 minutes · 2017
My life as a coach started at seventeen when I felt a calling to inspire people. I began serving in my church and speaking to our small congregation where I honed my skills as a leader and speaker.
Later I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters of Behavioral Science. During this time I married my college sweetheart and now it’s been 33 adventurous years. We launched two adult children but no grandchildren yet. In 1993, I started a private counseling practice which multiplied to 5 office locations, 13 counselors and more clients than I could handle.
I was studying positive psychology and a business coach introduced me to StrengthsFinder. Just reading my customized report ignited a transformation in my personal development, my career, and my purpose. Over the next several years I then built a niche as a strengths-based coaching business.
In October 2012, I got a phone call from Gallup CIO Phil Ruhlman followed by several brainstorming calls with Gallup talent development guru Dean Jones, and strengths evangelist and founder of Ancestry.com Paul Allen.
I have facilitated more than 27,000 coaching sessions and spoken to more than 100 organizations across the globe. I thrive on coaching people just like you to breakthrough with strengths.
