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.

Programme outline

The programme is split into two, two-day modules enabling participants to consolidate their understanding and practise the ideas and methods during the time between modules. Participants are given reading before the programme which enables them to understand the underlying theory so that time together is spent working on real work issues and practising skills.

Day 1 – The Aware Self

On the first day we’ll develop your skills and ability to improve your awareness of your experience, so that you know, on a moment by moment basis, what you are thinking, feeling, observing and wanting.  We’ll then develop your skills and knowledge of how to make sense of your experience and the experience of those around you.

Day 2 – The Descriptive Self

During day two we develop your ability to be clearer in how you describe your experience.  We’ll explore how to describe difficult, confrontational aspects of your experience in a way that doesn’t make others defensive, but elicits a willingness to listen and understand.

In-between modules

Participants are asked to consolidate their learning and practise the skills of clear leadership on a daily basis.

Day 3 – The Appreciative and Curious Selves

After reconnecting and sharing the experiences of their practice since module 1, participants begin to grow their Clear Leadership skills by being more able to observe question and probe others to understand what they are thinking, feeling and wanting.

Day 4 – Conflict and Learning at Work

The final day brings together the skills of Clear Leadership to enable you to lead organisational learning conversations. This is highly methodical way to understand and be clear about the experiences people are having and, as a result, change problem patterns and work differently together in the future.
