Why should I choose the Clear Leadership program?


It is naive to hope for a better result if you don't change anything. However, over the decades, the research has shown that 2/3 of change initiatives fail. In past 15 years a new approach - dialogic change management - has emerged and shown consistently amazing results: 

  • 90% of change initiatives succeed.  
  • Changes that used to take 2-3 years are now implemented in 2-3 months.
  • At the same time the stress level of employees (and managers) and employee turnover are lower than before the changes. 

About the program

Most research estimates that only about 35% of change programs succeed (Eaton, 2011). 

The Clear Leadership program is specifically designed by Dr. Gervase Bushe, one of the most influential researchers and consultants of change management & organizational development, to equip managers with the mindset and corresponding skills to raise success rate to 90%. And as a result, to enable creating better organizations, that deliver excellent results for all its stakeholder (workers, owners, managers, customers, suppliers etc).
