What is a Bravely moment?

At Bravely, we’re on a mission to help people address whatever they’re facing at work—whether that means approaching a tough conversation with their manager, colleague, or direct report; or simply learning how to shift their attitude about a particular situation.

The truth is, no workplace is immune from conflict: and even if you have your “dream job,” chances are it comes with its fair share of difficult relationships and dynamics.

What Bravely Isn't

Like many startups, we spend a lot of time talking about what we’ve built and who we’ve built it for. I’m constantly being asked: “What is Bravely?”

The tricky thing is that it can be hard to describe what you are when you’re building something totally new. Especially when your product or service is something that challenges the status quo and forces people to think about things differently.

That’s why I’ve found that it’s often helpful to talk about what Bravely isn’t.

Bravely’s Boring Brand Values

I’ve been looking forward to defining Bravely’s brand values since we came up with the idea almost a year ago.
