Prior to forming his own independent consulting practice, Brian led the education design team within Andersen Worldwide Organization’s Performance Consulting unit, and delivered world-class training as master facilitator for interpersonal skill programs serving Arthur Andersen and Accenture. Brian formed his company to focus on improving the quality of work life for individuals and teams through training and team interventions. He served as the Practice Leader of Organizational Learning with St. Aubin, Haggerty & Associates and Director of Learning and Development with Thailand’s APM Group (now SEAC). He also provided transition coaching for job seekers with Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Most recently Brian led all talent development-related programs from on-boarding through succession planning for TTX Company. Throughout his career Brian has offered expert coaching services to business leaders and their teams to enhance success and effectiveness in their chosen career.
Brian’s coaching philosophy is based on a strong belief that professionals motivate themselves, and that the energy required to achieve optimal success comes from tapping into the deepest aspirations and natural strengths of the individual. Mr. Carlsen takes an inside-out approach, seeking to achieve crystal clarity on what drives the individual, and how he or she is perceived by others through data-gathering, confidential dialogue, assessment and feedback. Strengths and aspirations, as well as self- limiting patterns and preferences are explored resulting in targeted plans and realistic steps to overcome environmental noise, monitor progress and achieve desired outcomes on the individual’s terms.
