Life is too short to wait for a promotion.

You want to be recognized for your potential, find your purpose, move forward in your career and live a vibrant, authentic, meaningful life.

Who is helping you get there?

which path 1

You know you have a lot to offer, but no one seems to ‘see’ you. You are optimistic and have big dreams but you feel anxious about important decisions, uncertain about the future, afraid to fail and under pressure to be successful.

There are hundreds of books, courses, and other resources out there on all these subjects…but even if you had time to take all that information in, how do you know what’s right for YOU?

What if you get it wrong? What if you miss out on the promotion or miss the best next steps in your career?

It’s all a little overwhelming, isn’t it?

The good and bad news is that there is no one right way to achieve your full potential, find fulfillment and enjoy success.

And whether or not you see yourself as a leader, determining your purpose, defining your values and developing essential leadership skills is the surest way to stand out, build a meaningful life and make a difference.

"I became interim CEO for an organization facing several crises. Genuinely, I didn’t know where to start as our board was a mess, distrust was rampant on our staff, and we were hemorrhaging money. Now three years later as CEO...
our board is an asset to our organization and future, the staff is healthy and growing, and the success in fundraising the past three years erased the deficit spending of the prior five years. However, working with Scott has been about so much more than just outcomes and a healthy organization. I’ve learned how to cast vision and lead change. I’ve become confident in who I am as a leader. I look forward to my coaching sessions because I always leave confident, clear-headed, and with a next step towards where I want to go and who I want to be. I’ve been a part of this community and experienced the impact of 1:1 Coaching from Scott, I cannot recommend being a part of this community enough.”
“I started as a Community Member before I became Community Manager! I truly believe in the power of this community for transformation – because I lived it. Brighton was a major player in learning myself...

more targeted leadership skills, and feeling empowered in my unique leadership style. In this community, I had other leaders who offered insight, coaching, feedback, and support. The more I aligned my leadership to my values, the more skills I learned and practiced, and the more support I received, the more I saw success – at work, but also in my personal life! One of the best decisions I made in my life and career was to join this community.”

"You belong here! For the practical support. Deep sense of community. And most importantly, you belong in this community where you can be your authentic self as you grow in your leadership. We like to have fun...
learn from seasoned professionals, and engage in meaningful conversation all at the same time! I knew I had something to contribute. That my insights would be valued. And, hey, even my own quirky sense of humor was appreciated. When you join this community, you’ll find others who care about leading well in their own unique way, and that makes all the difference.”
"My leadership journey can be defined as BD/AD. Before Donna & After Donna. Her ability to listen beneath what I am saying, synthesize my thoughts, and help me craft a life-changing plan has transformed my leadership and my life."

“The best part of this community is the learning and growth that happens. It has been a great experience to give back, mentor other leaders, and contribute ideas and insights...
There are so many opportunities to support each other in learning and development. There is no other place quite like this community within the leadership development space.”
