Action Stage 

Designing, Communicating and Activating Your Ideas

It's time to move your insight into measureable action steps that are motivating for you, your group, or your organization to complete.

It's about developing a collaborative and clear strategic plan that requests input from those who will be doing the work and from those who will benefit from the work.  

Using data from your discovery and exploration stages will provide unbaised information to prioritize goals and link the appropriate resources to each task.

A simple conversation can determine if all the resources needed to move ideas to actions are available and ready to proceed.  There never seems to be a convenient time for change processes, but without change people and businesses fail to reach their full potential. 

Benefits of this Stage of Development

  • People are connected to a vision with clear goals that they understand and value.
  • People are provided with knowledge, training, and resources to accomplish their goals.
  • People feel ownership, accountability, and purpose.
  • People communicate regularly to measure and celebrate progress.
  • People become less fearful as they experience new challenges.

Co-Designing a Plan to Take Action

With the use of a Career Coach, individuals will design their own career development plan that uses the information and resources gathered during the discovery and exploration stages. The plan will have clear objectives and action steps with measureable goals.

A Group Facilitator will provide a group an unbiased approach to build a strategic plan that unifies the membership on a clear vision, measureable actions, and champions who will lead the way.
