Developing great leadership in STEM, Biotech and Pharma 

If you're developing leaders and leadership teams in STEM, Biotech and Pharma, you are in exactly the right place.

The Clearworks Team specialises in working with scientific and technical leaders from these sectors. 

We know and love the idiosyncrasies of working with such smart, expert individuals who have lived and breathed science, tech, engineering most of their lives.


We understand that after a lifetime celebrating accuracy, precision and specific knowledge, it’s a heavy lift for smart technical experts and scientists to move to a more intuitive, whole-hearted, courageous leadership style. 

Developing flexibility, confidence and self-awareness in your leadership population will transform your organisational culture. Enabling your scientific leaders to relax into the bravest conversations and presentations, build the vision and engage their teams, will raise your whole performance, no question. 

This is the sweet spot for the Clearworks team, developing exceptional leaders and teams in this sector.  

We work with senior leaders in STEM to:

  • Build high performing teams more quickly

  • Develop leadership confidence at every level

  • Drive courageous conversations across teams and organisations

  • Change cultures by changing behaviours

  • Communicate vision, values and purpose with impact

  • Move up quickly from an operational or technical roles into leadership

  • Engage and motivate your star performers

Our aim is always to work in partnership with you, with great care and high calibre delivery.
