Leaders who attend to the needs of their heads AND their bodies, hearts and gut will surely thrive.

This is whole-human leadership and it will change the world.

STEM Leaders who work with us feel better, more satisfied, healthier, and on track for high performance and success, however they define that.

Organisations that work with us build communication and collaboration across their business, retain high performing leaders who feel valued.

Clearworks is on a mission to bring about more healthy, happy, high performance

in the senior teams of STEM, Biotech and Pharma.

Leaders who are working in fulfilling and balanced ways will stay longer with their organisations, perform at their best and deliver great work for  clients.  We all know that humans need particular conditions in order to thrive and achieve great thinking, and at Clearworks, we help organisations, teams and leaders to build high performance, connection, support and challenge - on purpose, and at an affordable cost.


Pause. Breathe. Be Heard. Think Better. Collaborate. Communicate. Move. Feel Better. Deliver. 

Current global pressures will weigh heavily on your senior leaders and we place great priority and attention on the wellness and balance of the humans behind the leadership stories. Resilience and leadership courage can be supported at the same time as delivery, and we’d invite you to have a chat with us, about how we can help you to achieve that.

Are you a leader in STEM, Biotech, Pharmaceuticals or Medtech?

If you're a leader in STEM and you're feeling as if you need to stop, breathe, think and ask yourself some big questions, we can help. For the last few years we've been increasingly concerned by the increase in the use of clients' language around exhaustion, overwhelm, juggling, drowning and burn out - both individually and in teams. Something is breaking slowly and we're committed to helping leaders hunt down the factors, behaviours, habits and beliefs that are making their world spin too fast.

Clearworks Coaching's HQ is in rural Northamptonshire, in the middle of the UK.  As well as being a beautiful place, it's handy for London, Oxford, Cambridge, The Midlands & Birmingham, as well as Heathrow, Luton and Birmingham Airports.  

The team delivers direct coaching to busy leaders face to face & online using Zoom and Skype.

In normal times, all coaches are happy to travel to work with national and international clients..nearly anywhere..

We have decided to stay grounded (in every way) for the rest of 2020, to be reviewed in the New Year.

As our awareness of the climate crisis has been growing, we've been driving more of our business to the virtual platforms and welcome efforts from our clients to be impact aware too. 

We hope that one positive outcome of the global response to this horrendous pandemic will be a huge reduction in travel.

All our programmes are designed for virtual delivery first.

The Clearworks values 

  • Happiness First

    We do the work we love because that's the work we'll do best. We believe that great outcomes will come if clients and colleagues are enjoying what we're doing. Wellness, positivity and kindness are key to every day working here. We aim to make every client glad they chose Clearworks.

  • Quality

    It's critical to us that the work we do is effective.  We'll never agree to do work we're not experienced and skilled to deliver and we'll keep learning all the time to ensure we're at the top of our game.  If we think the work you're planning won't make the difference, we'll say so.

  • Trust

    The cornerstone of all our work is mutual trust with clients. We'll only recommend known experts, we'll explore your options.

    We'll pass on the work to trusted allies if it's not our bag and we'll flag it if we have any concerns.  Your secrets are safe with us.

  • Fair Exchange

    We'll price fairly and deliver our very best work.  We'll avoid unnecessary extra charges and work in agile ways. We won't hold back if we can see ways to deliver more without charge.

    In return we ask to be respected as partners and paid fairly as agreed.  We also ask you to handle our IP with care.

  • Care

    We'll be aiming to excel as we work with your people.  We'll look after your records, your data and your confidences.  If we mess up, we'll apologise and find a way to make it up.  Our aim is long term partnership with our brains and hearts on full.
