I have wanted to drop you a note for a while now, to share my experiences of working with Executives who went through the Clear Leadership course. From the limited time that I have spent with the VPs several of them have commented to me on the impact the program has had on them, both personally and in terms of their leadership style.
One VP shared that "that program really made me think about myself in a way I haven't before... I got a lot of value out of it". Another VP shared that he had a conversation with one of his colleagues during the program that was extremely open and trusting...unlike any he'd experienced before.
In a meeting yesterday the CFO asked one of the Directors involved with the major reorganization: "So tell me Roger...what has this process been like for you personally?" When I shared the CFO’s comment with his coach, she said it’s the first time she's heard of him asking a question like that. I've heard this comment several times in the last few months...that our leaders are showing up a bit differently, asking different questions, and overall seem to have an increased awareness of the personal impacts stemming from executive decisions. I believe this is due in large part to the work you have done.

"Clear leadership is an important part of our leadership development strategy which we call Leading in a Learning Organization. I have personally used clear leadership dialog and practices to improve communication and have experienced it being used by our managers trained in these techniques. I would recommend this program for all levels from senior management to supervisory managers".

Clear Leadership had a very profound impact on how we operated as a company and kept us going where we could keep the fly wheel of performance turning faster and faster to the point where now - I won't say the organization runs itself - but there's a lot of power under the hood.

"Clear Leadership is a practical and theoretical education for all leaders. The change between theoretical lecture and practical exercises make the course clear and understandable. The method is very interesting and exciting and it opened new thoughts about communication and behavior. As a leader I have been so much better at communicating as well as understanding others".

Gervase Bushe's Clear Leadership program is, without a doubt, the best leadership program I have ever experienced or worked with. Clear Leadership was a life changing program for me. Through the program I gained significantly more self-awareness and acquired powerful and practical skills which have resulted in much clearer communication in my work and personal relationships. Living the principles of Clear Leadership has now become a way of life for me.

This four day course is designed to teach the skills necessary to create effective partnerships through clear communication and understanding with anyone, at any level within an organisation. ..While challenging, thought provoking and sometimes even confronting, the overall content of the program is not only educational and essential, it creates a very rewarding experience.
Stewart Craig, Team Leader
Training Services, HRM Group, IP Australia
Gervase Bushe's methods help people to dispel the corrosive effects of poor communications, effects that uncorrected can sap the life and joy from the task of leading an institution and which always reduce performance. His methods open the door to accurate communication and productive relationships. I have had the pleasure of working with Bushe to implement Clear Leadership and I can testify to its powerful and positive effects. At last, an effective and human way of improving organisational working culture and team effort.
