About Collective Clarity

The year 2020 has taught us a lot about disruption and complexity. Plans made six months ago now seem far away and maybe even irrelevant. We find ourselves struggling to work in new ways, across boundaries, and without the same institutional structures that may have defined our work in the past. We wonder how the future will look.

Collective Clarity, LLC was founded in response to these challenges. Clients include organizations from all three sectors – corporate, nonprofit, and government. Collective Clarity helps individuals, teams, and organizations turn complexity and disruption into innovative futures. The assessments, tools and process design help clients figure out what’s coming, how to prepare and how to build better futures for themselves and their organizations.

Leslie Wright was an invaluable help as the National Association of Counties underwent great change. Her assistance in leading us to a new future was inspiring and made so much possible. I continue to appreciate her insights and work in other arenas as well!

Linda Langston
Formerly Board President, National Association of Counties

Leslie introduced our non-profit organization to true, strategic planning while facilitating our annual development meeting. Her organizational skills and ability to keep the discussion “on target” provided the key ingredient we have always been missing. Everyone is now focused on the same goals and our non-profit is growing – we are serving more clients and this helps the Cedar Rapids community.
