The Course

The Clear Leadership course will transform your leadership, emotional intelligence, self-reflection, and communication skills and provide you with the possibility to achieve relational mastery.

Clear Leadership is one of those rare courses that offers participants both a well-integrated set of skills to make them more effective leaders and, for those who are ready, to challenge themselves and make a developmental leap to the next level of their growth.

No other leadership course offers the opportunity for such a large step in vertical development in such  a short period of time.

clear leadership walk the cube

Clear Leadership will allow you to show up differently at work and in your personal life by giving you a new, unique perspective on:


  • The underlying social and psychological processes that keep you trapped in unsatisfying and unproductive relationships
  • Why well-intentioned people who want to collaborate pull the rug out from underneath themselves and get in their own way
  • The personal choices leaders and professionals have to make if they want to sustain real partnerships where everyone feels responsible for the success of their common purpose

Clear Leadership will teach you a set of skills that will allow you to


  • Ensure the people you lead feel fully engaged in real partnership with you, enhancing all aspects of team and organizational performance
  • Create an inclusive environment where everyone can learn from the team’s collective experience.
  • Handle difficult conversations with ease and turn conflicts into positive learning experiences
  • Lead in a way that creates full engagement, real alignment around decisions and full commitment to the team’s purpose

These outcomes flow from an integrated combination of research, tested theory, and most importantly, a unique instructional method that moves people out of their comfort zone, learning to interact in ways they never have before and experience success in real interpersonal encounters (not role plays), making them much more able to take those skills back to the job.
