“I have had the pleasure and the good fortune to have been
able to work with Dr. Brusman and I would, without hesitation, highly
and sincerely recommend him to any executive interested in growth
for their organization as well as for maximizing their own effectiveness
as a business leader. His skill in identifying and cultivating growth
potential in the individual as well as in building cohesion among
team members as they endeavor to set goals and paths for their company’s
future has been clearly and impressively exhibited to me in my experience
working with him. Dr. Brusman’s mastery of tact and his skill
in assessing the nature of the interpersonal dynamic, in terms of
the individual as well as the management team, are unquestionably
two of his many strong suits.
I have worked with Dr. Brusman
personally in his Executive Coaching program. Additionally, I
have retained him for a similar program with other members of
my senior staff. I have also worked with him on several crucial
leadership issues and problems as well as retained him as a moderator
in helping the management team devise and implement strategic
and key mission objectives at a management retreat that was held
during a critical time in the development of the company. His
experience and professional focus was clearly evident and was
an integral part in the success of the program. His follow-up
as well as genuine concern can be credited with keeping the team
on task and focused even after the retreat. Dr. Brusman’s
approach and style is clearly unique and not like typical programs
that quickly dissipate to the status quo within days of the conclusion
of the program.
There is clearly no question in
my mind that Dr. Brusman would be a valuable asset to any individual
seeking to achieve his potential as an executive as he would be
to any organization at any stage of their development. My recommendation
of Dr. Brusman could not be higher.”
Jerome Pintar, Chief Operating Officer
It’s been a while since we
worked together, and I wanted to let you know how things have
been going. The work that we did together during 1999 and 2000
has helped to put me on a path to doing what I have always wanted
to do: be a successful entrepreneur.
In 2002, I tripled the amount that
I grossed in 2001. I now have a successful corporate training,
coaching and speaking company and work with clients such as Microsoft,
Coca-Cola Enterprises, Charles Schwab, Cisco Systems and Levi
Strauss & Co. I set my own schedule
(though I work harder than I ever have before), do work that I enjoy
and see the benefit that I bring to people every day.
The work that you did with me helped me in many ways. The most
important was the confidence that you helped me to develop in myself
and my professional path. Over the course of several months and
some fairly rigorous work, you helped me to see the value in my
skills and what I had to offer the business community. You helped
me to create a vision and focus for my business and then acted as
a resource and sounding board once I got the ball rolling.
Last week, I landed a $60,000 contract
with an extremely well respected R&D firm in Silicon Valley and am expanding my business to include
international work and various products to supplement my income.
I attribute so much of my success to the work we did together. To
anyone who wants a firm, compassionate, insightful and experienced
business coach to help them move forward with their life’s
goals, I can’t think of a better person to work with.
Thanks again for all your help,
Robert Graham Founder - GrahamComm
I want to thank you for your contributions to my success this past
year. Our discussions of leadership attributes, modeling behaviors,
dealing with conflict and influencing others have provided me with
tools to achieve my goals. I really appreciate that in each session
you challenge me to focus on the real issues and provide suggestions
for reacting differently to given situations.
Your ability to understand the dynamics of relationships I have
with people you have only briefly met enables me to discuss issues
and strategies freely. With your constant encouragement, I have
come to understand and appreciate my role in these relationships.
I’ll also point to our discussion
of bringing the passion of the ball field to all I do. That was
a great eye-opener for me and has created an energy in my daily
I look forward to a continued relationship as we move on to greater
ED FAHEY, President - RINA accountancy
Dr. Maynard Brusman has been extremely supportive to me in my efforts
to improve my performance and advance my legal practice. He is easy
to talk to, understands things readily and offers helpful suggestions
in a positive way. Maynard has a good understanding of the legal
profession and is able to provide useful insights in the variety
of challenges that arise. He exercises good judgment and provides
his advice in a warm, friendly manner.
I would recommend Maynard to any
legal professional who wishes to improve their effectiveness.
He was very helpful to me in getting me to focus on the actions
that will have the most long-term benefits and manage the other
tasks that have less value. He makes sure to understand all aspects
of one’s life, so that his advice helps
to foster an optimal work-life balance.
Very truly yours,
Michael N. Conneran - Attorney
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been in the midst of a
kind of “career crisis” for
a couple of years and felt the need for professional assistance.
Dr. Brusman attracted me because he specializes in working with
lawyers who are in career transition.
Dr. Brusman has been counseling
and guiding me for the better part of a year. Through a combination
of testing, questioning, gentle encouragement and practical suggestions,
he has helped me to identify and articulate my personal and career
goals and to take steps to achieve them. He is not afraid to challenge
my assumptions or to push me to think “bigger.” Notably, he has not focused
narrowly on “job searches” or mere tinkering with my
law practice. Instead, he has encouraged me to think both broadly
and in depth about my personal and professional needs, with an eye
to bringing the two into harmony. I have greatly appreciated and
benefited from my time spent with Dr. Brusman and would strongly
Very truly yours,
