Productivity worldwide has been declining for 20 years

There is one thing enlightened leadership will understand

To reach higher engagement is to have greater access to consciousness within the individual. You can not learn it, you can not push it, you can not pull it, nor dangle incentives in front of it. To increase its flow, you must become it, by letting go that which is restricting its flow.


Look at the numbers

A recent Gallup Report*

Only 14 per cent of employees in Australia and New Zealand are ‘engaged’ in their jobs. Employees who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organisation forward.

Disengaged employees

An overwhelming 71 per cent are disengaged’. These employees are essentially “checked-out”. They’re sleepwalking through their workday, putting time – but not energy or passion into their work.

Actively disengaged employees

As many as 15 per cent are actively disengaged’. These employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged co-workers accomplish.

Those in leadership positions fared even worse

Withonly one in five leaders engaged in the jobs’. That is 80 per cent of key decision-makers across the organisation. (* State of the Global Workplace Gallup Report 2017)


86 per cent of our organisation is struggling and the cost is…

Also according to Gallup, disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity and 15% lower profitability. When that translates into dollars, you're looking at the cost of 34% of a disengaged employee's annual salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000 they make. That is a lot of money!


 The problem


Worldwide research shows that pervasive tension occurs within individuals, at all levels throughout the organisation.

When tension is ignored, it denies organisations millions in unrealised revenues; resulting in massive employee disengagement and unreached productivity, staff health issues, and absenteeism.

The solution


We now know that the degree of negative tension constraining the individual – is equal to the degree of disengagement that they are experiencing at home and in the workplace.

Managing or seeking relief from inner-tension sounds great in the short term. Let’s face it - disengagement is still contained. The individual has to be willing to learn how to release it and let it go.

The action


Clarity is an incredibly simple yet effective method for ‘releasing or letting go’ of pervasive inner-tension – at the same time increasing receptivity – starting from just 5-minutes a day on a regular basis.

We can show you how easily leadership. managers and employees ‘buy into’ Clarity, as a personal life skill that they value – and the organisation can quickly gain new levels of productivity…


A reality check for leadership & stakeholders

As a leader, you need to take action to address employee disengagement. If not, the vision you have for your organisation can turn into a blurry outline, rather than the clear progressive steps – you had envisioned.

The Gallup Reports referred to paint a sad picture for both leadership and stakeholders, one being that every Monday morning you are paying your employees, including all levels of leadership the equivalent of a full tank of fuel, and only receiving around 14% of the fuel in the tank.

Therefore your vision for the organisation, along with potential new growth opportunities will be seriously restricted, denying you a healthy return on investment. Why? Because all of your old and new strategic planning, initiatives, and technical training, still need to get through this internal pipeline that is around 86% restricted by leadership and employee disengagement.

However, to the enlightened leader, all the above points to a golden, golden opportunity - but only if action is taken!

What others say


“We often get asked can you get the training program into one day and get the same results. The answer is that it usually takes us one day to get the group calm and focused and in a place they can absorb, retain and apply new knowledge.

This is particularly in respect to leadership programs. Im sure you could teach tactile skills (how to use a new drill) without being clear and focused but you have no chance of changing and or modify behaviours or getting buy in to new strategy, if the participant is not calm and clear”.

Richard Kelly, Vice President, Executive Perspectives



“In our role as one of the biggest training organisations in Australasia of organisational coaches, clarity is integral to our practice.

We worked with Stuart and Clarity for a number of years, to guide and encourage coaches to learn this very important practice”.

Dr Hilary ArmstrongDirector of Education, Institute of Executive Coaching Leadership, Australia


“I was too busy being busy to allow myself any quiet or reflective time. Indeed, I was one of those who would constantly bemoan the fact that there was never enough time to plan or prepare, I was always too enmeshed in the problem/solution cycle to take the time to find a way out of it.

That was until I met Stuart Mackay, the founder of Clarity”.

Stephen Johnston, CEO, Video Ezy, previously MD, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Author of “What Do You Do For A Living?” A Bold New Vision For Leaders.

Clarity reporting

Releasing negative tension within leadership to create ‘higher engagement’ or clarity may sound like a slightly abstract concept – it is not.

Below in this brief report, you will see how Clarity conducted just 3-workshops with a group of 44 senior executives in a Malaysian Fortune 500 company, and after training in Clarity, it achieved:

  • Actively Disengaged – Reduced by 70%

  • Disengaged – Reduced by 72%

  • Engaged – Increased by 3.8 times (380%)

Personal, My team and Organisation reporting

There are three types of measurement and reporting - Personal, My Team and Organisation Total:

All participants receive the Clarity online platform which contains the personal measurement and progress tracker.

At the Personal level, employees using Clarity can see their own individual progress as they release inner tension - and begin to create more clarity on a daily or frequently used basis.

At a My Team level reports on the collective team progress from day one.

This personalised "feedback loop" helps reinforce the benefits of releasing inner tension - and people begin to see the positives effects of clarity in both their work and personal life.

Monthly Organisation Reporting is categorised into the various selected groups.

The organisation report delivers a range of strategic indicators and is one of the deepest insights into measuring group engagement available.

It captures the progress of the group engagement monthly, whilst all personal data remains confidential, unless employees permission is granted.

The report groups your members groups into 4-categories:

• Actively disengaged
• Disengaged
• Engaged
• Actively engaged

These groups are not just measured by the amount of clarity gained, also through their willingness to progress and receive the rewards of higher engagement / growth potential.

Clarity is positioned to create and measure the shift to a higher engaged club in the shortest and most cost effective way.

By increasing their response-ability rate and decreasing time spent on the blur factor will create more focused and valuable time both family and work.


How to calculate the cost of employee disengagement

Gallup, through extensive research, found that, on average, 17.2 percent of an organisation’s workforce is actively disengaged.

Gallup describes an actively disengaged worker as someone who is “unhappy and unproductive at work and liable to spread negativity to coworkers.” In other words, they are people who don’t like their job and aren’t afraid to let others know about it.

Gallup also found that an actively disengaged employee costs their organisation $3,400 for every $10,000 of salary, or 34 percent. That means an actively disengaged employee who makes $60,000 a year costs their company $20,400 a year!

Using those two metrics, predicting the amount of money actively disengaged employees cost their company. First, you can predict how many employees are disengaged at your workforce – 17.2 percent. So, if you have 5,000 employees, that’s 860 people (5,000 x .172).

Now you can figure out the cost of those disengaged employees. So, say your workforce’s median salary is $60,000 a year. That means each disengaged employee costs you $20,400 on average, or 34 percent of their salary ($60,000 x .34).

That means those disengaged employees – 860 x $20,400 – cost your company $17.5 million a year. That’s a lot of money!

Receptive people deliver greater productivity

Clarity is unique; it helps create, manage, measure and reports the increase in receptivity (consciousness) for both individuals and groups.
