We help functional experts be strategic.


•  Who we work with  •



•  what we do  •


We provide a unique and refreshing style of facilitation to help executive teams challenge assumptions, define their strategic vision, and enroll the organization.

How we do it

  • Ask uncommon questions that lead to transformative thinking
  • Learn from other industries with relevant case studies
  • Leverage design principles to solve problems
  • Multi-track to solutions with small group activities
  • Rehearse to avoid surprises
  • Develop communication plans


The ability to solve increasingly complex problems defines an organization's growth. Left-brained thinking and analysis can rarely unravel these challenges alone. We teach teams to use both sides of their brains to identify, structure, and creatively solve problems.

How we do it

  • Introduce the concept of Innovation: Ideas + Action
  • Understand principles of design thinking
  • Learn to gather insights
  • Develop skills for on-the-spot creativity
  • Practice identifying, structuring and solving real problems


The most effective leaders get great results and build a strong culture for the future. We provide assessments, customized programs and coaching for all levels of leaders so they can perform at their highest level now, and in the future.

How we do it

  • Assess thinking & behavioral preference with tools like HBDI, MBTI, DiSC, Emergenetics
  • Engage participants with action-based learning
  • Dynamic storytelling and experiences
  • Personalized coaching conversations
  • Integrate with your company mission, vision, and values
  • Arm leaders with tools to apply and sustain learning

•  Our Story  •

What does it feel like to have butterflies in your stomach?


It’s that strange tickle that shows up just before you summon the courage to take the field, to go on stage, or to ride the rollercoaster with the 200-foot drop. When did you last have that sensation? When did you last have that sensation at work?

If you’re like most people, it’s been a while. Or never. Few of us have these feelings at work because we tend to avoid decisions or actions that require bravery. We naturally prefer the comfort of the status quo and the safety of the crowd. We play small just like everybody else. As a result, we seldom take opportunities to transform ourselves, our teammates or our organization.

At Bravium, we approach “butterflies” a little differently. We celebrate this magical feeling and believe it’s a sign that we’re about to do something remarkable. We embrace these moments of bravery as the truest way of achieving our highest potential.

With this spirit in mind, we design experiences and training programs that help individuals and teams bravely transform into more strategic, innovative and effective leaders.


•  Our Ethos  •

Get comfortable being uncomfortable.



We are capable of more than we realize. If we can be made to see it, then perhaps we will be unwilling to settle for less.



Inspire functional experts to transform into strategic leaders.





The urge to know is a powerful force. It keeps us moving forward, exploring, experimenting, and opening new doors.


In all that we do, may we do it with enthusiasm. No one ever moved the world without it.


Never underestimate the power to influence others. A simple act of kindness can change a life. Let us never miss an opportunity to be the reason someone believes in the goodness of humanity.


Obstacles will always interfere with our plans. However, we embrace the idea that what stands in the way becomes the way. We will endure, adapt and overcome.


Through which lens we see the world makes all the difference. With that in mind, we choose to bring happiness and excitement to everyone we meet.
