Leadership Learning, at your leisure in 2018!
In Deloitte’s “Global Human Capital Trends” Report in 2015, they note, “Today, driven by shifts in both work ethos and the transparency of the job market, employee retention and engagement are now the #1 problems companies face.” The #2 trend? Creating a Global Leadership Pipeline.
To round things out, the #3 trend was learning.
If this leaves you speechless and filled with anxiety, we understand. Leadership development matters to any organization feeling the strain of keeping talented people in today’s competitive marketplace. On an individual level these issues matter to professionals who want to grow their career trajectory by stepping into leadership. A robust trading and development strategy feeds your organization’s leadership pipeline with talented and high-potential employees (like you!) by providing the best learning opportunities to those team members who are motivated and excited to learn and grow.
This master class series from Bravo cc is here to help! The Bravo cc team has facilitated learning programs for the last thirteen years and we know what leaders care about.
We chose topics that participants bring up in our classroom over and over. We hear comments like, “I wish we had more time to talk about empathy,” “I know that vulnerability is important for me as a leader but I don’t know how to do it,” “I know I am supposed to motivate and show my appreciation to my team, but what works?” or “I am a terrible public speaker, help!”
We also know the challenge in finding the time for leaders to step away from the challenges of their day-to-day responsibilities to invest in their own learning. This series is designed for the busy professional who wants to learn but can’t find the time in their calendar to attend a class.
This Bravo cc master class series is the answer! Each series is made up of individual modules. For each module you receive:
- PDF Slide Deck
- Narrated Slide Deck
- Full Color Participant Handout
- Bravo cc #Printables to reinforce learning
- 7 “Thinks” to Do Handout for extended learning

Series One: You've Got Style Baby! Master the Four Social Styles
Launches January 3rd, 2018
“Why did she do that?” or “How do I get this person to raise their performance?” and “My people are not engaged! What do I do?”—sound familiar? Writer and researcher, Daniel Goleman, in his book Social Intelligence, notes that part of our human experience is to “tune in” to one another by building rapport and connections to each other. But, let’s be honest—when you have a number of challenges all vying for your attention, this can feel like one more thing to add to the list. What if there was a methodology you could use to build better relationships with your team, resolve conflict and circumvent misunderstandings? The good news: There is an answer. By understanding the four social styles of your employees, colleagues, leadership, and clients you will feel empowered to lead with confidence and credibility. Social styles determine the how and why of our choices and actions. Becoming fluent in each style creates a deeper understanding of values, motivations, needs and how each style reacts under stress.
Over time, as you master the four social styles you begin to see that you feel more capable and competent.
When you master the four styles you see the difference in yourself and your team. A socially intelligent professional is successful because he/she knows how to built trust, earn respect, listen to understand, create a collaborative environment and engage with others. As you get better at applying social style research in your everyday experiences you will start to see both personal and professional opportunities come your way!
Module One: What is a social style and why does it matter?
Module Two: Master the Four Styles: Social Style Profiles
Module Three: Master Versatility
Module Four: Social Styles and Leadership
Module Five: Social Styles and Conflict

Series Two: Stand UP and Speak: Master Public Speaking
Launches February 5, 2018
Your ability to stand up and speak (whether face-to-face or virtually) is critical to your success as a professional. In our highly competitive marketplace, where capturing the attention of any audience is more challenging than ever before—it simply isn’t enough to be knowledgeable on your subject matter. If you cannot communicate your thoughts, ideas, strategies and opinions in a way that resonates, prepare to be rendered obsolete.
The professionals I work with tell me that hands down, speaking skills are what challenge them the most and as you would imagine, they also report that this is one of the most important skills they need. We all speak in public, why not learn how to do it in a way that people put away their phones, listen intently, and come back for more?
A quality presentation requires a kind of thoughtfulness that we don’t bring to our daily interactions. While incorporating elements of conversational style into your presentation is a great way to start, the art and science of public speaking requires a methodology that appeals to your audience. We can show you how to do this and grow your confidence.
At the end of the series you will be LOOKING for opportunities to Stand UP and Speak!
Module One: Start with Audience Analysis
Module Two: Create content that captures their attention
Module Three: Develop a persuasive and powerful structure
Module Four: Now add Story
Module Five: Practice, Practice, then Practice again
Module Six: Deliver like a Pro

Series Three: The Triple Threat: Power, Persuasion, & Influence
Launches March 26, 2018
Series Four: The Well Rounded Leader
Launches May 7, 2018
The perfect follow up to Stand UP and Speak, The Triple Threat tackles three areas of professional life that we don’t talk about enough—Power, Persuasion, and Influence. What is it about certain people that they seem to easily sell their ideas and make BIG things happen? Were they born with it? The answer is NO. These “naturals” simply learned that Power, Persuasion, and Influence is a MINDSET you develop and then build proven skill sets to get more of what you want.
No matter your place in the organization, your ability to influence people to see your point of view is critical to success. “How you show up in a room,” no matter the situation, is a testimony to your triple threat potential. In this series, we assert that your PPI (power, persuasion, and influence) potential is a worthwhile area to work on and build skill sets. To do that, we start with the premise that PPI is not a bad thing. No! It is a GREAT thing, when grounded by a strong sense of ethics and integrity, PPI can be the game changer in any situation.
You will learn how to name, grow, and activate your power. From there you will master the methodology of persuasion and influence in order to captivate, compel, and capture people’s attention. Learn how to change minds, influence decision makers, and grow your confidence.
Module One: Define PPI, What does the Research Say?
Module Two: Become more POWERFUL
Module Three: Become more PERSUASIVE
Module Four: Become more INFLUENTIAL
Module Five: Put it all together—The Triple Threat formula

The art of leadership is one of the most investigated areas of communication research. Forbes estimates that more than FOURTEEN BILLION DOLARS is spent annual on leadership development!
Like most areas of human behavior, how we conceptualize leadership changes with the times—as cultural values and beliefs shift and more people are invited to participate in the conversation on leadership, our understanding of what makes for a GREAT leader has evolved (for the better). The “command and control” style of leadership that worked for our parent’s and grandparent’s generation is now “so not cool.”
Treating our people like a line item labor cost won’t cut it anymore. Our employees and team members don’t just long for a better kind of leadership, they demand it. In this series we tackle the these issues and lay out a vision for a new style of leadership—the well rounded leader. This leader prioritizes her people first, knowing what companies like Southwest Airlines has known for decades: When you put your people first, profit follows.
Where then do we begin? We offer you FIVE qualities of the well rounded leader that are not luxury but necessity for today’s organization.
Module One: We need a new leadership paradigm, here’s why
Module Two: Leaders have EMPATHY
Module Three: Leaders are VULNERABLE
Module Four: Leaders LISTEN
Module Five: Leaders ENGAGE
Module Six: Leaders MOTIVATE
