about

Thanks for visiting!  My name is Brett Blair, and I am the founder and president of the Blair Leadership Group.  We are an executive and life coaching and recruiting company.

My passion is helping people. It is a simple as that!

I am a life coach, author, speaker, recruiter and entrepreneur.  My executive search firm, Sanford Rose Associates–Blair Leadership Group, has been recognized as one of the top 10% of retained search firms within the SRA network for the past nine years.  Prior to opening my business in 2007, I worked for over 20 years for 3M and at Alcoa in a variety of leadership roles.

As an executive coach and life coach, I enjoy helping professionals who desire to grow and achieve balance in their personal and professional lives.  I love to write, and I enjoy sharing my personal stories, and helping folks overcome patterns of thinking that can limit their potential and success. I thrive in an environment where I can help people reach their goals and live the life of their dreams.

I am originally from Blue Springs, Missouri. I attended the University of Missouri (MIZZOU!) where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. I also hold an MBA in Finance from Tennessee State University and studied at Sophia University in Tokyo. I’m currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Psychology, with my dissertation topic being the study of human resilience.  I’m a graduate of the Arête High Performance Advisor academy, as well as an active member of the International Coaching Federation.

I’ve published several books, including From Autopilot to Authentic, and Living at the Summit – co-authored with Dr. Tom Hill.  I am an active blogger with a large social media following, and I’ve recently launched my first online course aimed at helping others live an authentic and purposeful life. Several other courses are in the pipeline, and I’m excited to be launching these over the coming months.

My wife, Kim and I live in wonderful Durham, NC, and we are active members of Newhope Church. We are also both avid distance runners, active volunteers in the local community, and we really enjoy travel and time with family.

I am actively designing and living the life of my dreams, I am blessed beyond measure, and I know that the best is yet to come!
