Tara Carcillo is the CEO of The Clearing, a people-centered management consulting firm. She is also a builder, storyteller, and scientist.
As a builder, Tara’s extremely proud of what they are creating at The Clearing, pioneering a different way of thinking about and executing change and transformation efforts. As a storyteller, she promotes the success of their clients and The Clearing’s role in that. She loves when that story attracts great talent to their company. As a scientist, Tara studies how the advice they provide to the clients can best be applied to their own organization to create a rewarding experience for the team members.
On top of that, she has the privilege of digging in on what she’s most passionate about: the design of organizational development practices and their implementation into the operating and management environments in which today’s leaders must survive and thrive.
To that end, Tara has supported leaders across the Department of Defense (DoD), General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), American Red Cross, Small Business Administration, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Administrative Office of the Courts, and various global financial institutions.
She received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Washington College and holds a Master of Arts in Whole Systems Design and Organizational Systems Renewal from Antioch University. On the weekends, you’ll either find her in the woods (she loves to hike and camp), trying out new forms of exercise, or enjoying Mediterranean food at some of her favorite spots in Washington, D.C.
