About A. Brent Brower
Brent Brower is the owner and founder of ABB LifeQuest. He is a Personal and Business Coach and Consultant with over 27 years of professional experience helping individuals and organizations achieve success and be their best. 
As a leader and coach, Brent has demonstrated his effectiveness in many settings including: Fortune 100 Corporations, Small Business, Entrepreneurial / Intrapreneurial, Technical, Church, Spiritual, Family

and Community
In each of these settings Brent has learned that two things are paramount for individuals and organizations to experience success, joy and fulfillment: 
  1) Clarity of purpose / mission / vision and
  2) Achievement of bottom line results. 
But where do we go to obtain the clarity we need and to answer the questions that close the gap between strategic plans and actual results? 
From both his life and business experience and from years of studying business, leadership, human behavior, psychology, and theology, Brent has concluded that the clarity and the answers we seek come from deep within each of us at the individual level. For organizations it comes from deep within the individuals and teams that comprise the firm. Brent’s coaching facilitates both the accessing and actualizing of this inner wisdom. 
In his individual coaching practice, Brent works in an interdevelopmental fashion that seeks the deepest level of meaning, purpose, and passion in a person as the foundation. From that point every activity, relationship, behavior, and decision can be evaluated and aligned with that foundation. Many find that choices they have made in life are not consistent with the purpose, passion, and meaning of their life and experience very positive bottom line results in their lives as they make deliberate shifts. 

For organizations Brent’s practice focuses on the top executives and their management teams. Strategic, marketing, and operational information is blended with a deep level of agreement on values, purpose, vision, and the passion of the top executives and their management teams to form a foundation. Every activity, relationship, behavior, and decision can be aligned with this foundation. Since most organizations have many individuals and teams, achieving and maintaining alignment becomes more complex but produces efficiency and effectiveness that grows the bottom line.
