Dr. Brent Carter | Owner & Lead Consultant

…is first an incessant student of leadership. He is also an optimist, author, speaker, and practitioner who has discovered remarkable patterns of team behavior that can predict workforce outcomes and drive clarity, cohesion, focus, and engagement. These patterns change everything in organizations, and you need to be aware of them.

Brent has provided leadership consulting to Fortune 100 and military organizations, taught at the doctorate and graduate level in human and organizational behavior, and is the author of multiple books and articles. He is able to translate complex ideas into pragmatic, usable tools to improve how people communicate, think, and collaborate.

In Untamed Leadership, Brent provides evidence that even humans have biological instincts. They shape who we are as leaders, and they control the functional and dysfunctional behavior that secretly pushes and pulls power-levers within our organizations. Using simple tools to discover how these neurological and sociological systems work, Brent provides pragmatic actions that every leader can use to grow fulfillment, inspiration, trust, and more engagement within their teams. 

In Intrepid Professionals, Brent had the honor to co-author this book with Special Operations Chief Warrant Officer Chris Schafer (U.S. Army Green Beret) to equip executives, managers, entrepreneurs and self-improvement seekers to understand and leverage principles of the military mindset. With real-life stories of suspense, heroism, and power of the mind, this book equips leaders to actualize intelligence and create more agile, innovative, and financially competitive organizations.
