  • Leadership consultant Peter Bregman has worked with hundreds of managers in companies across the globe to help them foster emotional courage in themselves and the teams they lead.
  • As a leadership consulting CEO and the author of three books and contributor to five, he is a worldwide speaker and expert on the topic of helping people develop emotional courage.
  • Through hands-on exercises and case studies, Bregman’s audiences walk through the process of effectively managing change so they can help their team be a solution rather than a barrier.

Leadership consultant Peter Bregman believes everyone has the opportunity to lead, regardless of their role in an organization. As the CEO of Bregman Partners, Inc., his company strengthens leadership in people and organizations, working to close the gap between what leaders know about leadership and what they actually do as leaders. His emphasis is on helping individuals, teams and companies foster emotional courage, which helps make difficult decisions and effectively manage change.

Bregman began teaching leadership using the outdoors as his teaching tool through Outward Bound, and then moved into the consulting field with the Hay Group and Accenture, before starting Bregman Partners in 1998. Since then, Bregman has worked with all levels of management to help them recognize their leadership potential, exhibit leadership behaviors, model and stimulate change, and foster emotional courage growth in people and teams.

He is the host of the Bregman Leadership Podcast, conversations with thought leaders that focus on ideas people can use to become more powerful and courageous. Bregman is the author of three books, including his most recent, Four Seconds: All the Time You Need to Stop Counter-Productive Habits and Get the Results You Want, a New York Post top career pick in 2015. He also is a contributor to five books, is regularly featured on PBS, ABC and CNN, and is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review, Psychology Today, and Forbes. His articles and commentary have appeared in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Fast Company, The Financial Times, and on CNN, NPR and FOX Business News.

Bregman earned his B.A. from Princeton University and his M.B.A. from Columbia University.

ON SPEAKING
CORE Agency What do you want people to learn / take away from your presentations?

Peter Bregman
How the gap between getting what we want - and just wanting it - is usually surprisingly small. A few small changes in our behavior - in what we do and say - can make a huge difference in how productive we are and how effectively we move our organizations forward.

CORE Agency What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How to you prepare for your speaking engagements?

Peter Bregman
I always meditate - every day - and that is a huge help to being present for a presentation. I always look over my notes about the organization and people who will be there and I try to get in their heads. What are they thinking about? What moves them What keeps them up at night? What little hacks can I offer them that is exceedingly practical, highly implementable, and will make a huge difference to the outcomes they want to produce.

CORE Agency Who are some of your favorite audiences?

Peter Bregman

I love sales people. They are just about the most positive people on the planet! I also like HR because I think their work is so undervalued. And senior level audiences because I can suggest a couple of compelling ideas and watch the immediate impact it has on their organizations.

CORE Agency What inspired you to become a speaker?

Peter Bregman
I have ideas that I want to spread. I see the way we operate in the world - myself included - and I think we can do better. It excites me that I can connect with audiences in a way that motivates some kind of shift in their behavior so they get more out of life and their organizations perform more powerfully.

CORE Agency What are some of the successes you've helped clients make?

Peter Bregman
I’ve literally seen stock prices go up - I know that might sound like a tall story - but it’s true. If the right people are in the room, and they catch on to an idea, and they have the rank or personal power in the organization to spread it - it will impact bottom line results.

CORE Agency How much do case studies, personal stories and or humor factor into your keynote speech content?

Peter Bregman
Almost everything I write about and speak about is related to my personal experiences - failures (many of them) and successes. My personal stories - along with a healthy dose of research - factor in a lot.

CORE Agency What other projects are you working on currently?

Peter Bregman
I run a Leadership Intensive program which is about deep leadership impact - it’s four days and it has a powerful impact and I love it. It’s about emotional courage - the willingness to take risky actions in the service of high aspirations.

PROGRAMS

Peter Bregman’s audiences are encouraged to make simple changes that have an immediate impact on themselves and their organizations. From showing an innovative path to productivity that takes less than 18 minutes a day, to helping people get out of their own—and other people’s—way, to teaching strategies to lead change without resistance, Bregman does not just tell people how to improve teamwork, communication and productivity, he shows them how to do it.

Four Seconds: All the Time You Need to Stop Counter-productive Habits and Get the Results You Want

Drawing from his most recent book, Bregman points out the funny places where our intuitive—but counterproductive—knee-jerk reactions get us in trouble, and shows audiences how to replace them with counter-intuitive, but productive, ones.

Bregman shows how a few individual changes can transform an entire organization—moving it from a silo mentality to collective leadership. In this session, he offers practical ideas, tools and tips to help people work together in a way that benefits them and their entire organization. Bregman will show audiences:

  • How to build a foundation of strength that inoculates them from getting triggered by what others do and say.
  • How and why we often they say the wrong things, and what to do and say instead to build relationships and get the most important things done together.
  • A three-step process for transforming poor habits into productive ones.
  • 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done

    Drawing from his book, 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done, Bregman sets out new and simple rules for leading in a way that brings focus to an organization and makes the best use of everyone’s talents.

    In this engaging, story-based talk, Bregman offers ideas, practices, tips, mind hacks and gentle nudges to help leaders bring focus to their people and their organization. Bregman will show audiences:

  • An 18-minute plan to manage their day and empower them to get the right things done.
  • How to get traction, stick to their focus, ignore non-priorities, avoid the allure of unproductive busyness, and master their boundaries so they can resist distractions.
  • How to build a plan that places people at the intersection of their strengths, weaknesses, differences and passions to maximize their success and impact on the organization.
  • Leading with Emotional Courage

    Emotional courage distinguishes powerful leaders from weak ones. It means standing apart from others without separating yourself from them. It means speaking up when others are silent and remaining steadfast, grounded and measured in the face of uncertainty. It means responding productively to political opposition—maybe even bad-faith backstabbing—without getting sidetracked, distracted or losing your focus.

    In this engaging and interactive talk, Bregman not only shares real-life stories of emotional courage in action, he gives audiences a taste of it by showing them:

  • What emotional courage looks like and why it is so important.
  • What it feels like—experientially—to have emotional courage through fun and effective exercises.
  • How to grow emotional courage that will help them take bolder moves in their work, their lives and the world.
  • Managing Change without Resistance

    Bregman has successfully designed and executed major change efforts that involve thousands of people at some of the world’s most prestigious companies. The key insight he shares with his audience: “People don’t resist change. They resist being changed.” Bregman shows audiences how most change is executed poorly and why most change management is counterproductive, creating stress in the leaders and resistance in everyone else.

    In this speech, Bregman teaches the audience how to shift their thinking and implement some simple strategies that can completely transform the way managers and leaders lead. Change instantaneously becomes an opportunity to deepen engagement and ownership, and to create a workplace where everyone feels responsible for the success of the organization. In this lively, participative speech, Bregman presents a case study of a successful change that involved 2,000 people in a global financial services firm. He shares with the audience:

  • Three change rules that must underlie any organization change effort.
  • How to use the “engagement continuum” to diagnose and describe their own change initiatives.
  • Seven strategies to engage the workforce during change and shift the responsibility from leaders to the people who must take the daily actions to make the change successful.
  • BEST-SELLING BOOKS

    Four Seconds: All the Time You Need to Stop Counter-Productive Habits and Get the Results You Want
    In Four Seconds, Peter Bregman shows that the answer is to pause for as few as four seconds—the length of a deep breath—to replace bad habits and reactions with more productive behaviors. In his trademark style of blending personal anecdotes with practical advice, Bregman reveals some of our most common counter-productive tendencies and describes counter-intuitive strategies for acting more intentionally, including:

  • Why setting goals can actually harm your performance
  • How to use strategic disengagement to recover focus and willpower
  • Why listening—not arguing—is the best strategy for changing someone's mind
  • How taking responsibility for someone else's failure can actually help you succeed
  • Drawn from Bregman's hugely popular Harvard Business Review blog, this engaging and wise book provides simple solutions to create the results you want without the stress.



    18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done
    Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review columns (which is one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 MINUTES clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items which are truly the top priorities in our lives.

    Bregman works from the premise that the best way to combat constant and distracting interruptions is to create productive distractions of one′s own. Based upon a series of short bite-sized chapters, his approach allows us to safely navigate through the constant chatter of emails, text messages, phone calls, and endless meetings that prevent us from focusing our time on those things that are truly important to us.

    Mixing first-person insights along with unique case studies, Bregman sprinkles his charming book with pathways which help guide us -- pathways that can get us on the right trail in 18 minutes or less.
