Effective Leadership Is Open to Outcome
Leadership is about realizing potential. It is about producing positive outcomes not otherwise possible. Successful leaders adapt their behaviors on an ongoing basis. Effective leaders are open to outcome. They doggedly pursue effective communication. Brightman mentors leadership on how to do the right things with the right people at the right time in the right ways.

It's Really Something Else
Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline, offers a transformative view of creative conflict and positive outcome: "In great teams conflict becomes productive. The free flow of conflicting ideas is critical for creative thinking--for discovering new solutions no one individual would have come to on his/her own." The present business era is seeing the emergence of business process as the central management focus. Today's business is about fast, fierce and frequent transition. Having process in place to meet the challenge is not an option.

Transition Is Most of the Work of Management and It Tests the Best
Business is change. Yet change itself is only an event in time. Change begets transition . Managing transitions is most of the work of management. In the midst of transition, the obvious is not always visible. Transitions test the best. No matter how well something has worked in the past, more is always being revealed. Brightman's observation and objectivity can trump frustration with innovation.

Honor Your Confusion
If you don’t get confused, you’re not growing. Honor your confusion. It always precedes learning. Learning comes when we pay intimate attention to our business relationships. There is no short cut to wisdom. Wisdom comes after learning. This cannot be reversed.

Honesty Without Fear Discloses a World of Hope and Possibility
Brightman believes that success in business relationships is an inside-out job. This means that answers lie inside the business relationships--inside each team member. Brightman's process provides a safe space, objective encouragement and focused opportunity for exploring critical relationships. Honesty without fear opens a world of hope and possibility.

Invest Yourself in Work Worth Doing
Mentoring is a co-creative process. It's an exchange of wisdom in the absence of fear. Everyone contributes to solutions. Business mentoring, after all, is not about giving a person a fish – it’s about teaching one to fish.
