The benefits of teams leading from your heart in a head-based world include:
As a leader in a business, inspiring your team to produce results they had no idea they could achieve is a key part of your role.
But you’re still human.
There are times when you doubt yourself, despite the evidence that you're doing well, and it gets as far as Imposter Syndrome.
You lie awake at 3am, scared they'll 'find you out' as a fraud. You worry that you don't know as much as you should - or as you think others do. You justify turning down golden opportunities, telling yourself you're too busy. You don't speak up when you have brilliant ideas, in case they figure out they made a mistake in choosing you.
But unlike your team members, you don’t feel you can tell anyone.
Until the day when you have to. And by then it can be too late.
Pushing down our secret 3am doubts and pretending it’s all ok can make us irritable, turn us into fire-breathing perfectionists and it even rewires your brain, making it harder for you to perform at the level that used to come naturally.
And I know I don’t need to go into what that could be costing your business. Or your career. Or your health. Or your relationships. You know that already.
I have spent 15 years specialising in mentoring senior business leaders to ‘get out of their own way’, without pretending, white-washing or ignoring how they feel, deep down inside.
But I don’t do ‘sticky plasters’. If you work with me, I teach you the techniques you need – for life. Clearing those hidden, out-of-date blocks can be fast, fun and forever.
This sets you free from having to push on through your hidden fears, cuts your stress levels and helps you to turn your inner critic into your biggest cheerleader.
And - the fun bit - you get to take off those masks you have been wearing to protect yourself. You get to become more of who you really are, no longer affected by others' opinions. No longer comparing yourself to them.
And that's the perfect way to step up to the next level on your leadership journey.
In this unique group programme, we'll spend ninety days learning how to spot and clear the silent saboteurs that have been getting in your way, then stepping into becoming the leader you were born to be.
In that short time, we'll achieve the equivalent of a full year's training, with just two days out of the office.
I'll guide you through the five-step process it has taken me fifteen years to create, with a combination of fortnightly video training (four modules), plus weekly then fortnightly group mentoring calls,
and a 2-day in-person retreat in Salisbury (UK).
February 3rd 2020
To kick us off, we'll deep-dive on your Big Why for this journey. Hint: it's the secret to staying motivated.
Plus we'll be busting the most common Imposter Syndrome and leadership myths, including well-intentioned advice that can actually make it worse.
February 10th 2020
Leading from your heart in a head-based world is about becoming more of who you really are - it goes beyond 'mindset' and positive thinking. The same goes for clearing blocks like Imposter Syndrome.
But the best place to start is with choosing which thoughts to feed - being able to stop negative self-talk, without going to war with your inner critic.
This module will teach you exactly how to do that. I've taught this stuff for nearly two decades to many thousands of people. It works like a magic wand.
You'll learn about the neuroscience of peak performance, how your self-talk affects your body, emotions and the actions you take, plus simple ways to cut your stress levels in under sixty seconds.
We take two weeks over this one, to allow you to master the techniques.
February 24th 2020
This module is about clearing out your hidden blocks, beliefs, fears and excuses - the ones that make our big decisions for us, without even realising.
It's a sticky-plaster-free zone.
And it's fun.
We take two weeks for this module, to give you plenty of time to clear out those hidden blocks.
Once that's done, we can deep-dive into the real triggers for Imposter Syndrome and head into our two-day leadership retreat!
Two Days In Salisbury (UK)
3rd & 4th March 2020
We can help you to arrange local accommodation in this beautiful cathedral city.
Having laid the ground-work in the video training and group mentoring calls, in these two in-person days we'll clear out the root-cause-level triggers for Imposter Syndrome, so you don't have to think about it any more.
You'll learn tools that work for life - to clear any block that comes up, without pretending, white-washing or forcing yourself to push on through.
Plus we'll lay the foundations for you to lead from your heart, in a head-based world, including:
16th March 2020
In our final module you'll learn my proven strategies for consciously creating your future, with no unicorns required.
Grounded and practical, you'll learn how to align with the 'future you', to become that whole version of you, right here, right now.
You can even use them for project planning and creating compelling presentations.
And you'll create your Massive Action Plan for the next five years of your leadership journey.
Until the end of April 2020
After the main teaching modules have been completed, we'll continue to have fortnightly group calls until the end of the 90 days, so you've got somewhere to:
It makes the difference between a 'nice idea' and lifelong change.
I am an international speaker and the author of five life-changing books. I have been a Leadership Mentor and Trainer since 2003, specialising in Imposter Syndrome and clearing self-imposed glass ceilings, and prior to that held senior positions in the corporate world, in engineering and market research.
I have been a certified NLP Trainer since 2003, which means I'm an expert in designing courses that work fast - getting you maximum results for minimum effort. It also makes me a pro at helping you to decode the 'user manual' for your brain.
You'll experience strategies that create breakthroughs in minutes, not months, with my unique blend of practical psychology, the neuroscience of performance, and demystified ancient wisdom, all combined with a generous dollop of humour and an engineer's common sense.
I love the way Clare explains things.
Her extensive experience of running her own business, writing her books, previous roles in market research and training in NLP and meditation seem to have been blended to create the perfect course leader.
I'd highly recommend Clare. I trust her authority as an author and an imposter syndrome expert.
You're passionate about making a difference, whether it's in your own business or someone else's. You're a business leader or established entrepreneur. This isn't for newbies. Sorry.
You're an action-taker, not a whinger. And you'll carve out the time to make sure you get the results you're looking for.
You've got good levels of self-awareness and you take responsibility for your actions, rather than looking for people or circumstances to blame, if the brown-stuff hits the fan.
You're hungry to make a bigger difference in the world with your team, and you have made the commitment to your future to clear out your hidden blocks, once and for all, so you can become the leader you were born to be.
Clare has a way of explaining things, so you create breakthroughs. Working with Clare has been the difference between being stuck and frustrated, and being on the path to creating my dream business and life.
MD of One Man Band Accounting
I have had so many a-ha moments with Clare's work. I now have clarity for how to leverage my gifts. Clare also turned on the lightbulb for me so I have the inner motivation to carry me all the way through.
To do this with me 1:1 would costs £9,995 for three months of support (you can sign up below, if that's what you're looking for). And I only take on a handful of clients for such intensive mentoring each year.
I want to make your Imposter Syndrome bootcamp as accessible as possible, whilst still giving you the quality of course and support you deserve. So the regular price for this 90-day group programme is just £2,995.
That's less than the cost of a day's 'pick Clare's brain' session with me. And you'll get a whole three months of working with me, getting answers to your questions, and sharing your journey with your fellow heart-based leaders.
When you consider the huge impact that Ditching Imposter Syndrome and becoming the leader you were born to be could have on your life, your leadership journey and your business results, I hope you'll agree it's a worthwhile investment.
If you join us by 5pm (UK time) on 30th September, you qualify for the super early bird rate, which is just £2,495. AND you get the early bird bonus of a 30-minute one-to-one mentoring session with me, too, at any point during the programme.

I have been leading the 2019 Global Imposter Syndrome research study and it showed that:
This 90-day programme can get you on track to make all of that - and more - a thing of the past. Surely, if you know you're secretly getting in your own way and you're hungry to become more of the leader you were born to be, there's no point in waiting?
You're going to be learning the strategies it took me twenty years to discover, research, refine and test. You'll learn them in just a few short weeks. That's quite a shortcut.
Are you in?
You will need to find 2-3 hours per week to get the most from this programme.
That will pay back every single day for the rest of your life.
If you genuinely 'can't' find the time, the bonus masterclass will help.
But only you can decide whether this time investment is worth it for you.
They will be on Fridays at 2pm UK (9am EST). They're all recorded, so you don't miss out if you can't make them live.
This way everyone gets a chance to join in, wherever you are in the world.
These sessions happen in a fabulous off-grid yurt. So they won't be live streamed.
The audio for each teaching session will be recorded, but it's simply not the same as joining us live.
If you're hungry to create the breakthroughs this bootcamp is offering you, there will most likely be a way to clear out your diary.
There's no expiry date on the training materials, livestreams and Q&As. They will be there for you in my online Training Vault for as long as it exists (I'm not planning on it going anywhere!)
The forum will also be there for you to get answers to your questions and to celebrate your successes.
The Facebook group will remain open for 3 months after the end of the bootcamp, at which point it will be archived. That means you'll still be able to see all of the posts, but won't be able to add new ones.
This is to help us keep our focus on this bootcamp, rather than allowing it to drift into being 'yet another Facebook group'. And it also helps to give you accountability for taking action on ditching Imposter Syndrome and your leadership dreams.
No. But we can help you to find local accommodation.
The two days of the retreat include break-out refreshments (including cake) and a vegetarian, gluten-free lunch each day.
Please let us know as early as possible if you have special dietary requirements.
Yes. If your application is successful, we can arrange to invoice your employer to cover payment. Delegates have also arranged with their manager to be able to reclaim this as an expense, which is often an easier (and quicker) option.
For entrepreneurs, this programme is considered a tax-deductible business expense in the UK.
Please note that all invoices must be paid in full before the start of the programme.
If we are required to apply for 'approved supplier status' before your employer will accept an invoice, we reserve the right to charge an admin fee for this.
Automated payment plans via secure credit card payments run for three months and you must make each payment on time.
