What Participants Learn

The Bregman Leadership Intensive is a highly experiential, four-day workshop that immediately increases your ability to skillfully handle the most pressing challenges that senior leaders face, including:

  • Mastering difficult conversations
  • Taking smart risks
  • Managing conflict
  • Connecting with people in a way that inspires their commitment
  • Responding productively to opposition
  • Managing unwieldy politics
  • Building bridges across people, departments, and silos
  • Building trusting relationships, even with difficult people
  • Communicating skillfully
  • Showing up in critical leadership situations with confidence

In the Bregman Leadership Intensive, you will make real progress on real issues that will help you develop your skills and move your organization forward.

There are Four Pillars of Great Leadership. How strong are you in each one?

Take the full assessment here.

There are Four Pillars of great leadership, and developing these is what we do at The Bregman Leadership Intensive. Most leaders are strong in one or even two of these pillars, but to be a truly effective leader you must be skilled in all four simultaneously. Read on to assess where you have opportunities to strengthen your skills:

1. Confidence in self

Do you:

  • Delay critical decisions, especially if they may upset other people?
  • Stay silent when you have something important to say?
  • Struggle with difficult conversations?
  • Shy away from important leadership moments?

Without confidence, your leadership will be unstable and unsustainable as you hold yourself back from taking the actions you know you need to take.

2. Connection to others

Do you:

  • Get frustrated that people don’t hold themselves accountable?
  • Struggle to connect with, energize, and inspire the people around you?
  • Feel misunderstood?
  • Need to push to get people to do what you want them to do?

Without an outstanding ability to connect with others, you’ll feel like you are constantly fighting others to get the most important work done.

3. Commitment to a purpose

Do you:

  • Feel like you’re pulled in too many directions?
  • Have a clear vision, but struggle to get others to align their efforts behind it?
  • Get frustrated with politics that get in the way of what’s most important?
  • Struggle to build bridges and break down silos?

Without a clear, collective commitment to a larger purpose, you’ll feel like you’re spinning your wheels - working and working, but never getting your most important work done.

4. Emotional Courage

Do you:

  • Over-think decisions before making them?
  • Procrastinate on important actions?
  • Allow the fear of failure to deter you or slow you down?
  • Have things on your plate you know you should do but don’t?

The willingness to take risks underpins the Four Pillars of great leadership. Without a willingness to act in the face of discomfort - what we call Emotional Courage - you’ll fail to step fully into your most powerful leadership.

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then there are gaps in your leadership. The Bregman Leadership Intensive is designed to address these gaps, teach you how to access your deepest resources, and find powerful solutions to your most pressing challenges.

Our work during the Bregman Leadership Program will be guided by the specific needs of the participants. That may include any of the following and more:

Leading change and gaining ownership. How can you get the right people to take accountability for the change you are leading?

Managing conflict and difficult situations. How can you resolve conflict in ways that build commitment and enthusiasm amongst everyone involved?

Creating a culture of self-motivation. How are you leading to get the most out of people’s internal drive?

Building an independently capable team. How can you help people learn, think, and act for themselves?

Clarifying the roadmap for success. What are your explicit and implicit expectations and how can you best communicate them?

Influencing strategically. Who do you need to persuade, about what, and how can you approach it most effectively?

Flexing your leadership style. How do you show up and how can you flex your style to be most effective?

Getting the right things done. How can you reorganize, re-prioritize, and react more efficiently to achieve your objectives and the needs of the business?

Conveying the right messages in the right ways. How do you you communicate with the right people in the right way with the right timing to achieve your desired impact?

I’ve had the advantage of working for a few very large companies, and each had huge funding budgets for leadership programs, most of which were classroom based. Everything about the Bregman Leadership Intensive was wildly different than any type of class I had previously attended.

During the Intensive, I found myself in places where my normal leadership skills simply didn’t sustain me. That’s where the real learning started for me.

In those moments, with Peter’s support, I discovered how to deal with situations where I had no clue what to do. I was able to feel incredibly uncomfortable and yet stay grounded and present and powerful. The confidence that came from this was real, and it has persisted.

My organization benefits from me being more courageous. I’m more capable of just stepping in and not being afraid of the things that used to stop me: fear of confronting people or failing or not being good enough.

In just a few days at the Intensive, I took in messages that I still think about all the time and that change what I do on a daily basis. I had never attended any kind of training that did that, that provided actual lasting impact.
