Soultuitive® Leadership - What Is It?
We're leading from our hearts in a head-based world, but we want to go deeper. We want to trust our intuition, showing up as all of who we really are, rather than putting on a persona and pretending. And we want to inspire our team members to do the same.
That's where Soultuitive® Leadership comes in.
It's about clearing out the hidden blocks that make us hold back and self-sabotage, so we can have the impact we've been dreaming of, from a place of flowing, rather than fire-fighting. We get to become the leader we were born to be.
There's no specific belief system required and it's not about a religion. It's about a deep, strong connection with who you really are and the difference you are here to make in the world.

Founder Of Soultuitive® Leadership
I started this work 20 years ago, after a corporate career in Six Sigma Mechanical Engineering and then as Head of Market Research for one of the world's most disruptive brands.
I was fed up with watching people trying to use yet more coping strategies to succeed, despite their secret fears, pretending to the outside world that they were confident, whilst dreading anyone hearing their 3am self-talk.
Even the tools as I had learned as an NLP Trainer weren't enough to tackle the root causes of these behaviours. And it set me off on a mission.
What I teach is grounded in two decades of enquiry, running research studies, evidencing outcomes, and inspiring people to clear out the secret, self-imposed glass ceilings they didn't realise they had put there, so they can truly thrive.
This work is now available to individuals and as scalable solutions for organisations, to create change in ways that are fast, fun and forever.

The Latest Research
We've run a number of international research studies, to deeply explore toxic resilience, burnout, Imposter Syndrome, and the causal links between them. These have allowed us to develop the models we now share as part of our scalable solutions. Here are our two most recent research white papers.
The 2022 Imposter Syndrome & Burnout Research Study
In this two-year study, which ran over the pandemic, we researched the impact of toxic resilience factors on individuals and organisations, and we discovered the causal role of Imposter Syndrome in this.
From it, we were able to identify:
- the three pillars of burnout
- the two biggest risk predictors for burnout
- additional strategies as part of our Natural Resilience Method® process
- and to create scalable solutions that can shift teams from surviving to thriving, without sacrificing the KPIs.

Here's where to book a call to discuss working with us on this.
The 2019 Imposter Syndrome Study
This ground-breaking research study gave a new depth of quantitative and qualitative understanding of what Imposter Syndrome really is and how to move beyond 'coping strategies' to become free from it, once and for all.
It established the vital difference between Imposter Syndrome and self-doubt, and gave us a framework for predicting when support is needed.
From this research, we were able to:
- identify why Imposter Syndrome is one of three hidden causes of the Gender Pay Gap
- measure its impact on individuals and organisations, through a research-backed self-assessment, quiz-style tool [take the quiz here]
- develop the 4 Ps of Imposter Syndrome model, to spot the early warning signs for practical interventions, before someone self-sabotages
- create the Imposter Syndrome Iceberg model, to explain why classic coaching and pep-talks aren't enough to truly clear Imposter Syndrome, and what we need to be doing, instead

What Clients Say
Many personal growth courses are by people who have had personal epiphanies who then try to sell unattainable solutions, built on vague concepts that are not easy to materialise... because they don't know how to unpack their own processes.
Clare Josa's background as an engineer and NLP Trainer PLUS her on-going research and client work qualifies her as THE person to deconstruct that art and science of bypassing your mental and emotional blocks and setting yourself free to make a bigger difference in the world.
Clare has, without a doubt, a varied collection of careers, training and life experiences under her belt. but they combine to make her the ideal person to teach you about changing your life.
The engineer in her means she's great at breaking down tough problems into workable solutions. Her time as Head of Market Research for one of the world's most disruptive brands enabled her to create the landmark 2019 Imposter Syndrome research study.
And as an NLP Trainer, a yoga teacher, and a certified meditation teacher, she can take you through inspired, practical steps to get out of your own way like no one else.
How We Help You Get Results
Clare's background as a Six Sigma Mechanical Engineer means the work we do is all about clearing out the root causes, rather than yet more sticking plasters.
Coping strategies can only take people so far, and often make things worse.
So we've created science-backed strategies and scalable solutions to support individuals and organisations in finally clearing out Imposter Syndrome, burnout and toxic resilience. These tools boost confidence, shrink stress levels, and support people in becoming all of who they really are, taking off the hidden masks and clearing secret, self-imposed glass ceilings.
So when we work together, you'll see measurable improvements (Kirkpatrick Scale Levels 3 & 4) in performance, productivity, innovation, team dynamics, staff retention, absenteeism, gender pay gap, leadership performance, and more.
Our Research Studies Show That:
28% of respondents have considered quitting their job, due to burnout, in the past week. For 10% it's daily.
62% are struggling with Imposter Syndrome, daily or regularly, at a level that impacts their work & wellbeing.
71% are struggling with Toxic Resilience, which is one of two core predictors for burnout.
