The traditional command and control structure is still very prevalent, despite growing demands in organisations for collaborative working – where leaders, managers and their teams have responsibility to make and enact decisions.   Digital changes and new organisational forms designed to increase the capacity for people to collaborate – to harness the intelligence, knowledge and commitment of everyone – have struggled with recent studies suggesting most revert back to command and control within a few years.  To prevent this, organisations need to create a culture that enables their people to be efficient and innovative at the same time – to learn and perform simultaneously.

Clear leadership is a unique leadership programme which enables leaders to do just that – to understand how to lead learning in the midst of performing – and not just how to lead performance.

By embodying the skills of clear leadership, participants will understand how to create learning conversations in which people clear out the mush, learn from their collective experience and build partnerships that lead to sustainable, high performing organisations.

Why you should attend this programme

You will:

  • understand what partnership is and why it’s the core of collaboration at work
  • learn how to learn from collective experiences
  • gain knowledge of the Clear Leadership model and how to apply this to your context
  • enhance your self-awareness and acquire practical skills which will provide clearer communication in your work and personal relationships.

Watch Clear Leadership creator, Dr Gervase Bushe, talk about the programme


I though that this could be ‘just another one’ of those leadership programmes. It wasn’t. It has and will be really useful and change how I think about myself and leadership.

This was an intensive and enriching personal development experience. I appreciated the variation in large group work, small group work and working with learning partners. I valued the people I was learning with and the transparency of our conversations. My personal experience was a developmental shift and an increasing understanding of self with greater clarity of what had been on my mental map but out of my awareness. For the first time in my life I saw a pattern that I hadn’t spotted before and became acutely aware of the impact that had on my daily being
