Unleash your leadership energy. Deepen your impact on business and society

As a leader, you may know how to be effective in theory, but it is all too easy in a pressurized environment to slip into habitual, less helpful behaviors that quickly drain your energy. It is different knowing what you need to do and actually doing it. This is the knowing-doing gap.

CLEAR is an exclusive, intensive and inspirational program for senior executives. Focusing on Cultivating Leadership Energy through Awareness and Reflection, this 10-month transformative journey helps you realize your full potential and become a better version of yourself as a leader.

It accelerates your ability to unleash energy and engagement across all levels of your organization so you can enhance business results and deepen your impact on society.

You and your class

You are a senior executive operating at or near the top of your organization. You are already successful, but you know that what got you here will not necessarily get you there.

You join an exclusive group of peers who face similar challenges and levels of complexity in their work. Your class will be limited in size so you are guaranteed the best possible environment for maximum learning, commitment and engagement.

After graduation, you will be invited to join the CLEAR alumni group and connect with other graduates who meet on an annual basis to broaden their learnings and have frank, confidential and inspiring exchanges.
