Taking an evidence-based approach to extraordinary leadership.

Ordinary leaders answer the questions. Extraordinary leaders question the answers.

What would help your leaders reach a new level of positive impact? Our team here at CLA (CogNative Leadership Advantage) are no ordinary consultants. We are hands-on strategic partners. We deliver proactive ideas, curating a solution drawn from our extensive suite of evidence-based leadership tools. We really care that our work with you creates a measurable difference. We leverage data, experience and relationships to shape cultures of leadership so that organisations can thrive in today’s world.

Extraordinary leaders are everyday humans… lucky enough to have had someone invest in their capability along the way.

How will you invest in leaders less ordinary?

Why us?

CLA is a team of organisational psychologists, coaches and transformation specialists working together seamlessly to help organisations take an evidence-based approach to extraordinary leadership.

Leaders today are balancing high pressure with high performance, often without the necessary support to maximise wellbeing, creativity, productivity and ongoing learning.

We co-design programs incorporating leadership development and wellbeing, assessment, coaching and transition, onboarding, and organisational transformation. Leaders rely on us to bring together psychology, leadership science, trusted consulting relationships and proactive strategy facilitation to deliver future leadership solutions.

Partner with us to create a measurable difference in your leadership.

ESG Sustainability Reporting

Sustainability is key to businesses that value longevity and loyalty.

Our heritage as a trusted advisor to leadership teams led to the development and implementation of our best-practice ESG Sustainability Reporting framework. Our ESG service partners with your team to document and develop Environmental, Social and Governance standards to deliver accountability and value creation to your stakeholders.

Build a better, more sustainable world with ESG reporting.

Global Capability Framework

Bringing the right capability, to the right table, at the right time is a priority for future success in every organisation.

The GCF creates a clear picture of the core and essential cross-professional, multi-disciplinary capabilities individuals should possess in order to effectively drive an organisation’s strategic direction and orient teams to a desired culture. It describes the transferrable attributes all leaders need for success inside and outside of their organisation.

Connecting a new language of leadership in a borderless world.

What challenges are we solving?

Are your leaders energised and ready to take on new world challenges? Does your culture lean into change? Does your organisation have a clear capability framework and leadership development plan in place?
