"It's not so much that we're afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it's that place in between that we fear... It's like being between trapezes. It's Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There's nothing to hold on to."
-Marilyn Ferguson

"Show me a person who has never made a mistake and I'll show you someone who has never achieved much."
-Joan Collins

"There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will be to treat others
with respect, kindness, and generosity.
-Nathaniel Branden

Jobs Are Different, Employees Are Different
Today's service driven society employs global cooperation in quest of it primary resource, knowledge. More than ever, jobs demand individual competence. Jobs now have greater variety. They often have built-in opportunity for learning and change. Jobs include discretionary decision making and may involve significant autonomy. People are performance assets. The work experience is being revolutionized.

Sleepless In America
Americans get less sleep that any other world population. Stress and speed are more present in work and personal life than at any time in our history. Addiction to stress impedes productivity. People are prime assets. Pay attention to them--their care is changing. Today's employee is every more multidisciplinary and has an average of eight jobs and three careers. Notice the demands of the changing workplace and seek creative solutions. Twenty-four hours without sleep reduces cognitive ability by 25%. When people break, so do their organizations.

Discover and Overcome Silent Cultural Obstacles
Brightman listens for what is no longer verbalized. but which everyone "understands". Most often, it is the things that no one talks about that are really holding the company back -- cultural beliefs that sabotage change and inhibit innovation. Disclosing these silent beliefs is the golden key that unlocks resistance to change and opens the door to possibility.

The Best of All Worlds
When people meet their needs by simultaneously doing what they believe to be right, the company they work for is greatly empowered. Act congruently with mission-based values. Periodically, course correct for skewed vision. Root out any culture of indecision. Confront partisan perceptions. Get people back on their path to greatness by revisiting their role-based, values centered identity. Ask Brightman about the power of the Social Contract® and how to institute one in your company.

How Much More Would Able and Willing People Accomplish?
Most businesses repeatedly avoid getting to the heart of problems and opportunities. They are in a hurry for a quick fix rather than a long-term solution. A symptom is treated, not the dis-ease. Avoidance sets up reactions that are destructive to all relationships — employee, supply, customer, community and society. Avoidance only makes things worse.

"You Ain't Nothing But A Winner"-Paul 'Bear' Bryant
Through listening and asking tough questions, BAI makes continued avoidance of chronic matters very difficult. Every company has prime low hanging fruit that is ripe for the harvest, but can be lost through practicing avoidance. People want to join a company because they believe that the environment will value all of their gifts and skills. People want to be winners and work for a winner.
