Exceptional leaders build cultures of clarity that support true collaboration and partnership at work
Develop greater awareness of your influence. Reflect on how you contribute to the 'mush' that gets in the way of interpersonal and organisational clarity. Throughout this program, you will embed the positive behaviours and practical skills of Clear Leadership, increasing your effectiveness as a leader and challenging yourself to make a developmental leap to the next level of your growth.
No other leadership course offers the opportunity for such a large step in vertical development in such a short period of time.
What you'll learn
Transforming your leadership, emotional intelligence, self-reflection and communication skills, this program will fundamentally change how you show up at work and in life.
Clear Leadership will provide you with the ability to achieve relational mastery and give you a new, unique perspective on:
- The underlying social and psychological processes that keep you trapped in relationships that are unsatisfying and unproductive.
- 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 a 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 organisational 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.
Learning outcomes / themes
Throughout your learning journey, you’ll explore an integrated combination of research, tested theory and, most importantly, a unique experiential method that moves people out of their comfort zone. They learn to interact in ways they never have before and experience success in real interpersonal encounters (not role plays), making it possible to take those skills back to the job. The program focuses on the four key areas of:
The Aware Self
The three main objectives are to provide you with skills to raise your awareness, on both a cognitive and an emotional level, of your sense-making process, and to raise your awareness of the variety of different experiences that are possible in any situation.
The Descriptive Self
The main objective is to provide you with the skills to make your experience and sense-making clear to others in a non-threatening and relationship-enhancing way.
The Appreciative and the Curious Self
The main objective is to provide you with skills to get others to be descriptive, to fully understand their experience and avoid the kind of reactions that stop people from telling you their truth.
Conflict and Learning in Partnerships
The two main objectives are to cement your understanding of and ability to lead organizational learning conversations and to show you how to use these skills to reduce unproductive conflict in your partnerships. You will also prepare to leave the course, ready to work on improving your partnerships.
Participants will partake in a series of interactive and experiential sessions, working with peers on issues pertinent to their leadership challenges. Each session builds on the next, culminating in the development of skills to lead conversations that increase effectiveness and collaboration in the workplace.
Clear Leadership is offered in two formats – choose the one that is right for you:
