Craig’s Core Values are: Dignity, Spirit and Loyalty
Craig specializes in people. He has spent the past 30 years becoming a foremost expert on the science of human dynamics in the business world. But he is not a theorist; he is a practical change agent who goes inside organizations to drive and positively affect performance by developing and helping to implement successful strategies.
Craig believes that dignity and respect are the birthrights of every individual. His work with people and organizations is designed to honor that conviction. He also believes that every client is entitled to a real and measurable return on the resources they expend with business consultants. Those two ideals work in partnership and are the foundation for the past and future success of Momentum.
After years as an individual consultant, Craig turned to corporate consulting, recognizing that any significant world change could occur only at an organizational level. He has since spent years developing a transformational approach to solving organizational problems with successful strategies in a variety of cultures, countries and languages.
Craig’s résumé proves that techniques for improving human communications are not bound by oceans or languages. He has applied his skills across diverse groups and cultures – from Moscow to South America, from the United Kingdom to Australia, including an 18-month off-site project in Indonesia.
As founder and CEO, Craig oversees operations both in the U.S. and abroad. He is focused on growing Momentum’s corporate discipline and leading teams in multi-day breakthrough programs that generate long-term, measurable results.
Craig Clark provided a great services at a time when I really needed to become introspective. So many of us were caught in the grist of a major corporate merger. I got some valuable coaching that helped me sort through a long career history and enabled me to prioritize me goals and acknowledge the long term objectives that I had somehow lost in my busy work life. The coaching clarified what I wanted to achieve and where I wanted my career to take me. Too often, we’re so busy that we forget that we are the masters of our own destinations and that we must sometimes make difficult decisions and chart a different path in order to recover control of life and achieve real satisfaction.
Liz Williamson: Former Vice President International Government Affairs, Conoco Petroleum
Our Executive Team was scheduled to participate in an alignment and team building process. The premise was that unless we were willing to be accountable for how we worked together and what we modeled in our organization, we had no right to demand that of others. Frankly, I was skeptical. I agreed with the premise; I just had rarely met consultants that I thought actually ‘walked their talk’ in such matters. Then I met Craig Clark and his team. Right up front they said, ‘We stand for the Dignity of all people, and we are committed to producing a breakthrough with each of you in what leadership takes.’ You know what? For four-and-a-half days that’s exactly what they demonstrated…. I observed a level of sensitivity that I find uncommon in the world of business.I was different after that, and I think I am better. I listen to his coaching still and something else that I think makes Momentum a great consulting group, they listen to mine.

We employed Craig Clark and his team because they had a breadth of experience and talent to fit a variety of our needs, including high-level team building sessions with our executives and managers, training internal trainers for us to build a practice of accountability across the organization and helping our managers to develop their listening and coaching skills. They were also instrumental in working with our Union reps and Management reps prior to Union Contract negotiations on how to conduct collaborative negotiations – a model we continue to use. We are an international company with locations worldwide, and their uncommon cultural sensitivity, respect for people and extraordinary experience gave us a resource worldwide, not just in Canada. We like these guys!
