3 min read …The 20th century was dominated by process efficiency. The first part of the 21st century has focused on technology innovation. Future success will be achieved by energizing people. Organizations that put people first by working with leaders and teams to solve people-related conflicts and maximize every team’s energy will radically improve team performance and more meaningfully achieve their overall mission. So said the founders of Clarity Ventures, Jonathan Schultz and Rommie Zats. The two will be at Innovation DuPage on Wednesday, September 25, for an ID Mentor Workshop to help ID Members understand and manage the most crucial of issues affecting the likelihood of achievement: relationships with others
Here are some examples of the people-related conflicts Clarity Ventures has already helped teams solve:
- Rapidly onboarding and integrating new team members so they can drive impact immediately
- Resolving team conflict amongst team members / co-founders / investors
- Teaching leaders to empower their teams and get out of the details
- Supporting leaders and teams struggling with burnout and rejection
- Helping leaders build empathy for their teams to better align and storytell on their mission
Know Your Biggest Conflict

Clarity Ventures will help you understand what brings you energy and when you’re at your best
With their proven framework, Clarity Ventures will help you understand what brings you energy and when you’re at your best as well as the biggest conflicts holding back you and your company. Then they’ll design a solution that you will put into action the very next day.

What Past Participants Said
A startup organization themselves, Clarity Ventures has already put their powerful workshop sessions to use helping a number of teams to energize and break down conflicts. Some of their feedback include:
- “For the first time in several months, I now know why I’ve felt depleted, I have the vocabulary to talk about, and clear actions to bring me energy.”
- “For my entire career, I’ve hated these team “kumbaya” sessions. I can honestly say that today’s entire session has given me energy.”
- “That was a great session! Thank you guys. It couldn’t have come at a better time for me and my co-founder.”
