WSAE Annual Conference 2019
Pre-Convention Deep Dive
Owner at Clarity Consulting Partners, LLC
The thread that links my work experience together is seeking ways to facilitate meaningful and lasting positive change in organizations and with people. Each position I’ve held has been aimed at helping organizations make sustainable changes that lead to better business results.
Talent within organizations is one of the primary levers we have to generate meaningful change, and I am passionate about unleashing people’s potential from the organizational constraints that usually exist. This can include driving out fear by creating clear lines of sight and aligning around common business practices and goals, equipping people with the skills they need to do their jobs well, and coaching managers of people in performance management.
