Is CLEAR the right leadership training for me?

This program is ideal if 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 may be CEO, managing director or executive vice president in a large or medium-sized corporation. Alternatively you may be a senior partner in a professional firm, senior executive in a not-for-profit or public organization, entrepreneur, owner of large family business or board member. You will recognize yourself in one or more of the following situations:

  • You are successful, but your success has come at a high personal cost and you wonder if there is an easier way
  • You are on track but want to boost your understanding of human behaviors and organizational dynamics, and give yourself time to reflect and recharge with people like you
  • You are considering a transition in your life and need a supportive space to explore your options and build new skills
  • You have just started a new phase in your career. You need help with the changes you want to make in your organization, your team and your own leadership


The program extends over 10 months in three modules, including 20 days spent in rejuvenating, retreat environments in Europe and Asia. You also receive pre- and intermodule learning and executive coaching throughout.

Module 1
Your journey starts at IMD’s state-of-the-art campus on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland and continues at a mountain retreat chalet in the village of Champéry in the Swiss Alps.

Module 2
Your second residential experience takes you to the tranquil garden pavilions amidst the rice fields of Bali, Indonesia.

Module 3
You return to the IMD campus in Lausanne where you conclude your journey.
