Play • 21 min

Brian Nelson, a retired Army Major and combat veteran, served as Deputy Director, Joint Services for the Washington National Guard Special Ops, and Operations Officer of Task Force Dagger in Afghanistan. A Russian-speaking Intelligence Officer, with a Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership, Brian was early the early adopter of resilience training in the military, and he later founded Grit360, a consulting firm for mental skills, character, and leadership development.

He and his wife, Kelly, co-founded an animal rescue called Kindred Souls Foundation, and Brian directs a race called “Unleashed at Stadium Bowl.” You can catch his TEDx Tacoma Talk called 1 lb Stronger for insights based on his cognitive neuroscience studies and his experience in the weight room and running steps at the stadium.
