The Learn Grow Lead (LGL) Development Programme has been delivering results for Clear Channel’s managers since 2012. This enhanced programme built upon the original, ensuring a consistent and effective approach for new managers in the business.
Our purpose was to empower leaders with the skills and behaviours necessary to lead their teams and achieve outstanding outcomes. We introduced practical models and diverse learning approaches to equip individuals with the essential skills for their roles. The programme focus was on personal leadership, resilience building, and effective people management, all firmly rooted in Clear Channel’s core values and behaviours.
Central to the programme was the focus on achieving results through people and understanding your impact on others. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was used to provide a shared language with previous cohorts. This is a highly effective tool for understanding personality types and individual preferences.
The aims of the programme were to:
Increase self-awareness to encourage personal growth and confidence
Enhance ability to manage and work with a wide range of people
Improve flexibility and decision-making in delivering solutions to difficult problems
Build a stronger presence and personal impact on organisational performance
Increase leadership and management capacity
Increase organisational knowledge regarding the challenges and issues facing Clear Channel and their role in addressing these challenges.

Post Programme Evaluation Comments
“Thank you – I have taken so much away from this course and it’s given me a confidence I didn’t think I would find. Before this course I questioned if I could be a leader… now I know I can!”
“I loved it. Was one of the best things that happened to me this year and really helped me to know myself better and learn new tools.”
“I really enjoyed the process on the whole, and it has definitely made me more conscious of my own leadership style, which is really helpful. I also really appreciated getting the opportunity to meet people from other areas of the business that I wouldn’t usually get to meet.”
