Brian Peterson

Brian is “wired” to be a problem solver – always wondering - is there a better way?   It is the pursuit of fulfilling a greater potential in himself and others that led him to leave an engineering career and become a Leadership Coach and DISC Consultant with Maxwell Leadership Team and a certified Dave Ramsey Financial Coach.  Everyone has more potential, but the challenge is whether or not to leave the safety of the comfort zone.  Brian is also a recovering perfectionist - learning to recognize when “good enough” is good enough.  That is why Brian ultimately wants to empower people to clarify what is important, get laser focused, and make better choices to unlock their potential.  His goal is to add value to others to become the best versions of themselves.  Brian’s areas of specialization are personal growth, financial freedom and leading self and others.

I believe that the secret of your success is determined by your daily routine. If you make a few key decisions and then manage them well, you will succeed.


Brian's favorite quote:

"You will never change your life until you change something you do daily!"    John C. Maxwell

More About Brian!

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, with the majority of Brian's life spent in Lincoln, he embarked on his career as an engineer. For over 33 years, Brian served as a rubber chemist, finding solace behind a computer, yet sensing a lack of genuine meaning. Seeking more purpose, he took on the role of a lay pastor for approximately 11 years. This endeavor not only allowed him to deepen and share his faith but, more importantly, to cultivate a profound appreciation for people.

​Brian's dual career as an engineer and pastor brought numerous growth opportunities and promotions. In 2015, he became a part of Maxwell Leadership. In his professional journey, he identified a gap in authentic leadership skills. Leadership, centered on people rather than mere processes, stood out as the missing link. While both management and leadership are crucial, it's leadership that not only breeds success but often elevates it to a level of significance. As an introvert at heart, Brian's passion for personal growth might just convince you that he's an extrovert at heart!

Outside of his professional pursuits, Brian cherishes moments with his wife, Kris, and their family - whether camping, sailing, enjoiying Nebraska Volleyball, movies, or simply relishing time in their favorite space - the back porch.
