Reinforce and sustain your leadership impact across all dimensions of your organization, and your life
Cultivating Leadership Energy Through Awareness and Reflection (CLEAR) is an exclusive, holistic leadership journey for senior executives that spans 10 months, inspiring lasting change.
This journey challenges you to become a more responsible and engaged senior leader by building a Leadership Operating System that establishes trust, provides clarity and builds momentum, for yourself and your organization. CLEAR enables you to amplify your impact and influence across all spheres of your life and to build a leadership legacy that positively balances profit, people and the planet.
Working closely with an international peer-group, faculty and coaches throughout the journey, you will experience a truly transformative change in how you approach leadership and your life.
A holistic approach to extend your leadership influence to positively impact your organization and beyond
As leaders rise into more senior level roles, how they impact the business and drive performance changes. At junior levels, people can directly drive results through what they do but as people move into senior leadership roles, their job becomes more about helping others to achieve results. Senior leaders focus people, motivate them and set the tone. And in doing so, they create a working environment – a kind of operating system (OS) – for their people. So, to fully understand yourself as a leader and what you need to do to succeed across all levels of your organization, you need to understand the environment or OS that you create and how it affects your people and their performance.
Over the course of your CLEAR journey, you will focus on building your Leadership OS to embody the characteristics that are critical for success. Working with professional coaches, your peers and faculty, you will develop the foundational qualities that result in leadership that is built on trust, provides clarity and drives momentum across the organization, and beyond.
