Access a Clearness Committee

Facilitators Judy Hawkins and Nancy Edmundson, together with Leading From Within, invite the Courage to Lead (CTL) alumni and current participants to re-tap a  trusted practice and resource – especially in these times of complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty.  If you are interested in accessing a Clearness Committee, or learning more about this offering,  please fill out the form below.  Judy or Nancy will respond to you to discuss and assist with next steps.

When experiencing a personal or leadership dilemma,we know it can be challenging to ask for and organize a clearness committee. We want you to know that we’ve got you! We will help invite, orient and host your Clearness Committee.

We know you might ask the questions:

“Do I have time and energy to pull together a committee that could be helpful to me?”

“Others are leading full lives, dare I ask them for this time?”

“Is my dilemma significant enough to ask this of our network, particularly at this disruptive time?”

We invite you to set those questions aside, and fill out the request form below. 

The intention of the Clearness Committee is deep listening, holding space and the offering of Open Honest Questions to a focus person (individual CTL alumni or current participant) who are struggling with an issue, contemplating a shift/change, experiencing or planning a transition either personal or professional. This offering is designed to invite, encourage and support our Courage to Lead peer network to re-engage this shared practice.
