He incorporates experiences from his professional and personal life into each one of his presentations. Bryan has been happily married for over 30 years and a dedicated father for 35 years of three wonderful children and definitely understands the need for professional and personal life balance.

Professional History

After graduating from the University of Nebraska in 1980, he accepted a position with Elanco where he earned the prestigious “Mac Award.”  After seven years with Elanco, Bryan started Results, Inc., a company to promote educational seminars throughout the United States and Canada. As his company grew to over 100 employees, he relocated to Dallas and added another division called Results Educational Network, which filled stadiums in six major cities and featured the most sought after speakers and personalities.  The knowledge he acquired and relationships he built from working with top executives evolved into delivering an increased number of in-house training and coaching sessions. After 12 successful years, Bryan sold Results, Inc. to pursue a full time professional speaking and coaching career.

Professional speaker

Bryan Dodge probably holds the record for being the busiest communicator in America.  His inspirational keynote covers professional and personal development, success habits of the wealthy, and leadership principles. The underlying thesis of all of Bryan Dodge’s teachings is that “Life is too short not to be happy, and life is too long not to do well.” His programs are designed to accelerate professional and personal growth and produce the favorable results people look for in life both at work and at home. He clarifies your thinking process so that good decision making skills come easily. At all of his events, he stresses the importance of managing and maintaining professional and personal life balance.


The Good Life Rules: 8 Keys to Being Your Best at Work and at Play, published by McGraw-Hill and a Borders Books Best Seller, is his latest book release. He is the author of three professional development audio programs, How to Build a Better You, How to Build a Complete Sales Person, and How to Build a Purpose Guided Life. He is also the co-author of the book, Becoming the Obvious Choice, which sold over 200,000 copies.

Radio Personality

For 8 years Bryan was the host of the “Build a Better You” radio program. The show airs on Dallas/Fort Worth’s premier radio station, KLIF570 every Sunday and has been featured on WBAP as well as No Boundaries Business Radio.  During his show Bryan reaches out to his audience, inspiring them to strive for their goals and aspirations.

Originally from Colorado, Bryan and his wife Margaret currently reside in the Dallas – Fort Worth area where they have made their home for past twenty years. They have raised three successful children that have grown and matured into thriving careers of their own.  Although everyone has moved their separate directions and are molding lives of their own. Bryan now a proud grandfather, his wife Margaret and his family still create time for each other, building on their philosophy that family comes first.


The Construction Leadership Network (CLN) was formed on the principal of bringing together top construction entrepreneurs and their key personnel to exchange ideas and share best practices to improve the industry, themselves, and their organizations.

This sharing, learning and winning environment continues throughout the year with the Member e-Forum, an automated email discussion group facilitating interactive conversations with peer members, and the e-Catalog, a document library of forms, policies, manuals, and other important resources shared by member companies to help each other succeed.

The success of the Construction Leadership Network is incumbent upon having members who believe in the philosophy of a win-win approach, are trustworthy and are committed to creating a supportive environment for sharing best practices.

We welcome you to become a valued member of the Construction Leadership Network.
