Do you feel like you’re hustling to prove your worthiness? Constantly taking on more, yet somehow getting less and less done? We’re here to help. 
We’ll guide your transition away from burdensome transactional management to joy-filled transformational leadership. We’ll show you how to focus on clear purposes, meaningful work, measurable impact, and celebration of genuine accomplishments. 

Working with us, leaders at all levels learn to prioritize their work – day by day, decision by decision – to find deeper meaning and personal joy in their leadership practice.

We provide processes, templates, tools, and guides for moving from dream to action. We offer self-paced courses, virtual communities, individual and small-group coaching, and live, in-person workshops.  

You deserve a workplace where you and all your colleagues can maximize your talents, unleash your power, shine brightly, and lift each other up.

When you are empowered with clarity, purpose, and joy, the entire institution benefits. It’s easier to see your impact and know you’re making a difference. This kind of campus joy becomes contagious, manifesting itself in happier, retained employees – and happier, engaged students. We all win. 

The Clareo Group helps institutions draw out the radiance of individuals and groups so that the whole organization can shine.

Behind the name

The Clareo Group was imagined while watching the sunlight change the water over Lake Michigan at sunrise. That transition suffuses my soul with tranquility and joy. It’s the feeling I’ve built The Clareo Group around. My mission is to help you find that same sense of light-filled, clear, and distinct joy in your personal leadership journey.
