• Leadership & Communication

Lead the way to a New World!

Consulting, coaching and workshops to help individuals and organizations create a Renaissance.

I have spent three decades teaching and practicing in the multi-faceted areas of leadership and workplace communication.

Years of hands-on experience prepare me to spot issues quickly. My business expertise combines with my interdisciplinary background to give me an expanded perspective so I can help you design and implement the most creative and future forward solutions.

Creating new organizational strategies during challenging times is a specialty! Much of my organizational experience has been focused on helping leaders during times of high growth and change.

Clare possesses a unique constellation of abilities. She is able to quickly define, articulate, and prioritize issues, and get to work on implementing necessary changes or innovations.
