- Tired of being dependent on
vendors for participant materials every time you are wanting to
run a training course?
- Unable to customize your own
participant materials or would it cost "an arm and a
leg" to have the vendor do it?
- Little or no flexibility in the
use of current consultant/vendor supplied training materials?
- Do you not have the time or
resources to design and develop appropriate interventions?
- Little or no vertical and/or
horizontal integration? Different models, skills, behaviors etc
for different levels in the organization. Different core skills
in different interventions - selling, negotiating, conflict
handling, performance management etc.

There are 5 behavior clusters that we have identified as critical to
the success of any interaction. These clusters make up the CLEAR

clear understanding of the topic or issue being discussed.

ensuring implementation of agreed actions.
Each of the CLEAR Skills clusters are further broken down into
identifiable and easy to learn behaviors. We should also note that
these skills are used as and when necessary and should not be seen
CLEAR™ Collaborative Problem
underlying objective of all our interactions should be to enhance
the relationships between those involved. The only successful
way to achieve this is to approach interactions in a collaborative /
With few exceptions most business related interactions are
of problem solving nature. A sales call, for example, should
be viewed as a process of helping both parties solve their
respective "problems". The seller needs to
sell. Buyers make "buying decisions" based on
a desire / need to resolve dissatisfactions / problems. Sales people
help buyers in this decision making process.
The CLEAR Process Model provides you with a process against which to
plan and conduct your interactions. The
process "steps" are not necessarily sequential, but each
is, as with the CLEAR skills, essential if you are going to achieve
your objectives for that interaction.
