About Us

Our goal at Clarity Compass Consulting is to support individuals, teams and organizations in powerfully transforming to their next level of well-being and effectiveness. We provide support and guidance for individuals and groups into having deep insights about themselves, others and the world that provide richness in living and a bountiful work life specifically through use of the clarity compass tool.

The idea of the Clarity Compass started in 1984 when Brit was a management consultant working with companies that were just beginning to become major organizations. As their world continued to become more and more complex Brit saw a way to provide a framework that would break down those problems into more simple and conquerable issues. This framework continued to evolve as he worked on his PHD and also brought into play mental maps and individual paradigms. That original framework has become the Clarity Compass tool and is now used in both training courses and one on one coaching.
