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.

|What do you want people to learn / take away from your presentations?
|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.
|What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How to you prepare for your speaking engagements?
|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.
|Who are some of your favorite audiences?
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.
|What inspired you to become a speaker?
|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.
|What are some of the successes you've helped clients make?
|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.
|How much do case studies, personal stories and or humor factor into your keynote speech content?
|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.
|What other projects are you working on currently?
|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.

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:
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:
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:
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.
