Clarity means making conscious and self-determined decisions
The complex digital world requires that each individual takes courageous and prompt decisions, and more decentralized decision-making structures. In a Rundstedt survey of more than 1,000 employees, 51 percent limited room for maneuver and low decision-making power as reasons for quitting. (wirtschaft + weiterbildung 6/2018). But experience shows that leaders and teams struggle with the scope and autonomy and long for guidance. This dilemma can only be solved through clarity of vision, value and purpose.
Employees need to know the organization’s why and core values in order to be able to seek autonomous solutions and make decisions. Studies show that people who feel that their work has meaning perform better. Generations Y and Z, in particular, focus less on money and more on meaning and self-fulfillment in their career choices. Clear alignment gives employees a sense of purpose which unites and creates a shared understanding of common goals.
Leading authentically with values and clarity
In the New Work context, employees are increasingly empowered to organize themselves and make decisions autonomously - and make mistakes. Leaders need to learn to delegate, provide guidance and trust. This, however, requires clarity about the organization’s direction, otherwise the lack of trust and clarity (about guidance, communication, decisions and requirements) will result in high financial damage.
For conscious decisions, organizations need a new decision-making and healthy failure- culture. A leader can provide guidance only if they are aware of their own values, strengths and weaknesses, and live them. Lived values are authentic, create clarity and give direction. This supports employees to prioritize autonomously and to use their decision-making powers.
Alignment + Enablement = Empowerment. Each individual also needs I skills and competencies. In order to work effectively together and make decisions, teams must be aware of the strengths and resources of each individual, responsibilities must be clearly described and the scope for action must be jointly defined with the leader. Additionally, it is important to acknowledge and identify individual development areas and what passions each team member brings, who has potential and desire to develop further and also who may need to re-think their development.
Through clarity you implement changes and transformations successfully
Clarity promotes fulfillment, commitment and success
Clarity about one’s own values, direction, needs and purpose acts as a compass in life and also in the job. Only if you know your priorities and when they are aligned with your own values and goals, can you act authentically and consciously. You should look holistically at what you want to achieve: in your job, in your personal life, in your partnership and in all other areas that are important to you. Only then will you achieve the success that fulfills you!
Companies that provide employees with opportunities to reflect on their expectations, on their strengths and weaknesses, to become aware of their beliefs and fears, ensure that they have space to develop their full potential. Individual and team coaching can support in gaining clarity about values, goals, unconscious limiting thoughts and hidden potential. Clarity mobilizes strengths and activates resources - to act in a self-determined, successful and authentic way.
Clarity about interests, needs, values, resources and feelings are a source of strength and knowledge and a prerequisite for changing one’s behavior.

It is difficult to gain clarity on complex issues. Psychological research shows that lack of clarity and indecision prevent us from unleashing our potential. Coaching helps us to reflect about our personal situation, identify challenges, and opens up new perspectives and resources. Coaching helps in making complex, value-driven or life-changing decisions, Coaching uses a number of proven techniques to consistently evaluate the consequences of a decision. By acting out scenarios, the client is able to choose the most suitable decision and strengthen the transfer into action. This has a direct impact on well-being, satisfaction, and work performance (Kotte et al. 2018).
When we are faced with conflict, we often do not see with clarity. We are emotionally involved and we do not have a clear view of the conflict and its causes and, above all, of the possible and appropriate solutions. Mediation can create added value personally and socially, because it helps to gain clarity about one’s own needs and values, and this may lead to a change in behavior. In the transformative approach according to Bush and Folger (2009), this is achieved through empowerment: self-empowerment and self-affirmation lead to more self-decision-making and self-esteem.
