Founder, Achieve Peak Performance
Brian Blake has been at the forefront of the coaching/training industry for well over a decade. Through his work with J.P. Morgan Chase on organizational/employee-level performance enhancement, career mobility initiatives, networking/relationship building, personal branding, conflict resolution, and more, Brian has cultivated a reputation for enhancing business success.
Brian has coached/trained wide ranging populations (analysts up to executive director, IT professionals) across multiple types of businesses (Investment Bank, Asset Management, Business Banking, Technology, Finance, Legal & Compliance). His work with employees has focused on a multitude of issues, including skills enhancement, adding value through initiative, communication capabilities, career planning, team building and leadership, among others.
After working as a legal recruiter early in his career, Brian expanded his career management experience as a career counselor at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. In this role, he provided all facets of career action planning ranging from beginning law students as well as seasoned, practicing attorneys. Brian further strengthened his expertise in conflict resolution/mediation while managing a dispute resolution organization for the City University of New York and providing pro bono mediation services for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. These unique experiences lend to Brian’s uncanny ability to help businesses and individuals identify problems as they arise and provide solutions before issues escalate.
For six years, Brian also played a vital role at New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. He was instrumental in developing and teaching a conflict resolution foundations course—a class designed to teach students how to solve disputes, influence decisions, and smooth out interpersonal relationships.
Brian has a law degree from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in political science and philosophy from New York University.
