Brian Houp, PCC

When leaders with great responsibility find themselves in new or changing environments, clarity and focus are more important than ever.  This clarity combined with an increase in awareness and an ongoing accountability for action helps generate the results we seek.

Since 2103, Brian has been coaching key leaders to excel in many uniquely complex situations. As a result, Business First named Brian one of the 20 People to Know in Career Development field.

Coaching through chaotic times is nothing new to Brian. For nearly 15 years of his corporate leadership life, he led others through 5 mergers and acquisitions while performance increased along with way.

Brian believes prioritizing life away from business is key. He takes great pride in a personal commitment to his faith and family by making time for his two-time breast cancer survivor wife while raising nephews that lost their mother to substance abuse.

Never content with his results, Brian is constantly challenging himself to achieve at higher levels.  Although shamefully voted the office workaholic at a one point in his career, Brian has learned to use his personal life experiences and past business successes to coach others in a unique way that delivers both personal satisfaction and business results.

Peggy C. Hinds, ACC

I am a professional coach because I believe in the power of coaching to change lives. I believe this because it happened for me. At a time in my life when I was going through major transitions – divorce and career discernment – a coach walked with me and helped me discover my own wisdom and deepest desires. This same process works for groups, boards, and congregations.

I bring to the coaching relationship 20+ years of experience working with individuals, congregations and nonprofit boards. Guiding people, organizations and groups through self-discovery and renewal of purpose is a calling and gift that I have been honing through years of ministry and personal growth. I want to help you discover your deepest desires and live into them. My coaching specialties include leadership coaching, congregations, nonprofits and church leaders along with those listed below.

Coaching is future- and action-oriented. Creating new vision is only purposeful if it leads to action. Together we can discern vision, imagine possibilities, and create action plans that will move you, or your group, congregation or organization toward your desired future. I do not offer a “one-size-fits-all” package to tell you what you should do. I guide you through your own self-discovery and creation of a plan that fits your unique situation and call. I journey with you, supporting your vision, encouraging your dreams, and motivating you to achieve.
