Bryan joined the Top Mental Game team to help athletes, leaders, and organizations improve performance and optimize their potential to succeed on or off the field. An Idaho native, Bryan was a multisport athlete at Buhl High School (football, wrestling, track & field) where he earned 11 varsity letters, two state champion titles (wrestling & 300-meter hurdles), and an All-State First Team selection in football. Bryan’s positive individual and team experiences in high school helped shape his decision to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point.

While at West Point, Bryan studied mechanical engineering and was a member of the Army wrestling team. A varsity wrestler in his junior and senior year, Bryan’s team success culminated with a dual meet victory over the United States Naval Academy in 1997, breaking a 36-year winning streak for the Midshipmen. Bryan graduated later that spring and was commissioned as an aviation officer.

After completing flight school and transitioning into the Army’s primary assault helicopter, the UH-60 Black Hawk, Bryan embarked on a 27-year Army career where he led and commanded aviation units of all sizes in dynamic, fast-paced environments. He established positive, solution-oriented climates that encouraged and rewarded initiative and positive communication, built around standards, discipline, values, and ethics. Domestic and global operations allowed Bryan to lead America’s sons and daughters while commanding aviation units at the company, battalion, and brigade levels, accumulating over 3,000 flight hours on six different aircraft.

Bryan’s late father, Tom Chivers, taught and coached Bryan throughout high school and was his first advocate for improving mental performance in the classroom and competition. As a cadet, Bryan was the benefactor of West Point’s Center for Enhanced Performance, and as a soldier, Bryan had positive experiences while conducting pre- and post-deployment resiliency training sessions. Mental performance has been a significant part of Bryan’s athletic and professional success and a critical capability he honed to perform and lead during stressful, mission-critical situations when success was demanded.

Bryan lives in Kalispell, Montana, with his wife, Alicia, and their five children, Lane, Brett, Anna, Morgan, and Evan. He volunteers as a youth wrestling and football coach and is working towards certification in the Montana Officials Association. Let Bryan mentor and coach you to perform at your best when it matters the most.
