The Brightside Core Values

Delivering Results

Karran is passionate about delivering results, and through Brightside she and the team love to support customers to achieve the outcomes they desire. Up front conversation about your objectives and what you are looking to achieve is essential, by setting a clear intention up front we commit to deliver the outcomes you want, there will always be challenges along the way, we are there to support you with these.


We place importance on trust, honesty and integrity in all parts of our business from suppliers, partners and customers. We do not work with anyone who we do not feel works in a similar vein to ourselves. We treat our customers’ businesses as if they were our own and confidentiality and professionalism are maintained by Karran and throughout Brightside. In coaching session you may share something that makes you feel uncomfortable, this is protected by confidentiality boundaries, we are here to support you and there needs to be a trusting bond established for us to do so.

‘Life is short’ is not perhaps your normal company value. We truly believe that life is short, all any of us have for sure is this day. We aim to help individuals to find their happiness, what puts you in high spirits and drives you to be your best self. In a self, leadership, team or wellbeing context it all boils down to helping individuals to have confidence to be their best and to truly be grateful for the life and opportunities they have in front of them.
