Place of Comma
Not sure if this is correct? Grammarly says to put a comma after Claire, but thinks it
looks weird. Any suggestion?
I am aware of Travis's abilities, and will meet with Claire and he to emphasize the following leadership qualities; we are seeking vision, ability concern for others' confidence and persistence.

I moved 'concern for others' because if you place it before any of the others it sounds specific to just that ability...concern for others confidence...placing it on the end gives it a fuller meaning: concern for others (I think of everything as dialogue. A comma would be correct grammar-wise, but I hear the words in my head, and pause).

Tony addresses the usage and punctuation, and I'll address the Grammarly service. Sometimes, the software gets confused, and I think this was one of those times. I've seen it ask for a comma in similar places. What is consistent is the next word is "and". The software either thinks you are beginning a new independent clause or it thinks the "and" marks the final item in a series of three.
In either case, the service is wrong here.
