Who is Clarity?

Clarity is Brian B. Egan, whose unique combination of engineering and human-relations experience provides a holistic approach to resolving today's business problems.

Brian gained extensive practical experience in organizational evolution during 26 years with Hewlett-Packard Company. This time included 18 years as a project manager specializing in training, communication, and process improvement, and five years as an internal organization development and management consultant. 

Formed in 1999, Clarity provides organizational improvement, strategic planning, and conflict resolution services for businesses, non-profits, and individuals.

Brian's breadth is demonstrated by this small sampling from his many successes:

  • Co-designing and co-leading a Future Search Conference for the whole-system change of a 300-person organization.
  • Providing leadership coaching and leading problem-solving sessions in a four-person medical office.
  • Designing and facilitating an international organization design meeting for a major global department of a Fortune 500 company.
  • Designing and facilitating a five-day-and-night teambuilding and skill-building offsite for an international virtual team.
  • Pro bono, working with executives and boards of three national charities to help them improve their leadership skills, collaboration, and internal communication.
  • Leading an 18-month global process-standardization project.
  • Designing and implementing a large intranet global knowledge repository web site, basing the work on extensive international research of user needs.
  • Mediating over 1,400 cases, with an impressive record of helping the parties reach agreement.

In addition to his organization development skills, Brian is a Certified Professional Facilitator, accredited by the International Association of Facilitators (IAF). Brian is a Certified Mediator and Certified Online Mediator.  He served seven years on the board of the Oregon Mediation Association, holding the offices of President, Vice President, and Secretary. In addition to numerous private cases, on a pro bono basis he mediates Small Claims Court cases for Benton and Linn Counties, Oregon. Brian also is a highly rated adjunct professor of Technical Writing at Linn-Benton Community College.

Having lived in England for four years and Germany for two years, and having worked within global virtual teams, Brian is sensitive to international and cross-cultural issues. This experience can help organizations to avoid the pitfalls that accompany a global presence and to make the most of a diverse workforce. (While Clarity is based in Corvallis, Oregon, Brian considers the entire world a potential client base, and is delighted to work in other geographies.)

Brian holds a Master of Science in Organization Development (MSOD) from Pepperdine University (the top-rated OD program in the world) and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from San Jose State University. He has completed numerous mediation courses, and has a number of certificates for management, technical, and non-technical courses.

Brian is a member of the Academy of Professional Family Mediators and Oregon Organization Development Network. He is a proud Vietnam-era veteran of the US Air Force.

Clarity has close ties with a variety of other consulting organizations, so that appropriate external expertise can be brought in for your specialized situations if needed.
