Bright Future Consulting has a research-driven best practices approach to developing a strategic plan. For our organization, Nebraska Educational Technology Association (NETA), the approach involved and engaged the NETA membership in the creation process. Dr. McCann walked the NETA board through a thought-out and detailed process to outline the organization’s plan. The process included research of best practices, membership feedback, in-person discussion and goal setting to develop NETA’s strategic plan for the next five years. His hard work and dedication to the process was superior!

Working with Bright Future Consulting is building my capacity as an individual and a school leader. I am learning abut myself through Dr. McCann’s coaching with the Gallup Strengths. By understanding my talent and strengths, I am becoming a more authentic leader able to embrace the vulnerability of leading diverse and complex organizations.

Bright Future Consulting combines 35 years of educational leadership experience along with current research to coach individual leaders and leadership teams. Dr. McCann provides advice in the areas of strategic planning, personalized learning, and systems leadership. Through their skillful use of questions and coaching strategies, I have been able to create an action plan to leverage my strengths to specific leadership situations relevant to me. I highly recommend the Bright Future approach to working with an individual or a team that is committed to taking that next step from good to great!
