Book Review - Clarity First: How Smart Leaders and Organizations Achieve Outstanding Performance

Clarity First: How Smart Leaders and Organizations Achieve Outstanding Performance



About the Book

Award-winning business performance improvement and Lean management expert Karen Martin diagnoses a ubiquitous business management and leadership problem―the lack of clarity―and outlines specific actions to dramatically improve organizational performance.

Through her global consulting projects, keynote speeches, and work with thousands of leaders, Karen has seen first-hand how a pervasive lack of clarity strangles business performance and erodes employee engagement. Ambiguity is the corporate default state, a condition so prevalent that “tolerance for ambiguity” has become a clich├ęd job requirement.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

In Clarity First, Karen provides methods and insights for achieving clarity to unleash potential, innovate at higher levels, and solve the problems that matter to deliver outstanding business results. Both a visionary road map and practical guide, this book will help leaders:


  • Identify and communicate the organization’s true purpose
  • Set achievable priorities
  • Deliver greater customer value through more efficient processes
  • Provide greater transparency about true versus assumed performance
  • Build strong problem-solving and critical thinking capabilities throughout the organization
  • Develop personal clarity to be a more direct, purposeful, and successful leader


Eliminating ambiguity is the first step for leaders and organizations to achieve strategic goals. Learn how to gain the clarity needed to make better decisions, lead more effectively, and boost organizational performance.

When it comes to leading an outstanding organization, every great leader needs Clarity First.



My Take on the Book
I really liked this book. The author did a great job at communicating to the reader about great ways in which you can work on changing business principles that will truly change the way that you look at success in leadership. The book is filled with a good mix of practical examples as well as as well as concepts that can be easily implemented. I liked that the examples come from in and out of business. You will find that the book is a powerful book that offers extensive insight into how you can change your own processes. The other thing that is important with this is that the ideas presented are ones that can be used in many different industries which makes this very versatile.
