Why are workplace inclusion and positive workplace relationships so important?
Almost one-quarter of employees have left a job to find a more inclusive organization. (DeHaas et al., 2017, Deloitte.com)
Today, leaders are expected not only to master traditional leadership skills like good communication, but to model inclusivity for all employees (Ryan Jenkins, June 12, 2018, Inc.com)
Research by inclusion expert Lisa Nishii finds that when leaders and work teams value and create inclusive workplaces, organizations are more creative, have better financial performance, and have lower turnover rates (Lisa Nishii, Cornell University.)
The Clarity Collaborations team uses planning, meeting facilitation, evaluation, team development and project management to foster collaboration and inclusion that results in positive change to how teams and organizations function.
We offer two core inclusion services:
•360 feedback and coaching for leaders
•structured conversations to improve employee relationships
We also lead evaluation, planning, team development and other projects to create organizational change.
We are also inviting interested organizations to participate in survey research on positive workplace relationships. Participation allows leaders to diagnose and improve how valued and included employees feel in their organization. This project is developing and we welcome partners to test our survey.
360 FEEDBACK AND COACHING FOR LEADERS
360 feedback and coaching for leaders uses in-depth interviews of colleagues, direct reports and top-level managers to provide feedback to leaders. The process is grounded in positive psychology and ensures that leader behavior can change through on ongoing process of feedback from interviewees after the 360 process is over. Feedback is used in coaching sessions.
I’m Jessica Shryack, founder of Clarity Collaborations. I believe that successful collaborative work depends on positive working relationships.

I have expertise and certifications in multiple facets of organizational development: research and evaluation, quality process analysis, planning, training, intercultural development and 360 feedback. I am proud to call Minneapolis, Minnesota home.
