1. Strategy Phase
The Strategy Phase determines your vision & articulates your desired outcomes.
We start with an Assessment Interview to define your longer-term vision & shorter-term goals. We explore your strengths and weaknesses, prior patterns of success & modus operandi.
- Define goals & desired outcomes:
- Immediate: what you want to achieve
- Legacy: what you want to be known for
- Clarify values, including personal definition of success
- Outline challenges or barriers
- Review career & personal accomplishments
- Explore leadership style & capabilities
The Assessment Report synthesizes findings from your Assessment Interview & provides interpretation & recommendations to prime you for action.
- Clearly articulates vision & desired outcomes
- Identifies challenges & opportunities
- Recommends strategies to achieve desired outcomes
- Conduct stakeholder interviews to gain additional perspective from your colleagues/clients for a more robust assessment
- Facilitate Team Management Systems (TMS) profile to understand your work preferences & leadership style
2. Action Phase
The Action Phase transforms the Strategy Phase into a specific Action Plan. The coaching relationship helps you enact and follow your Plan.
The Action Plan is your road map to achieve success. The Ranson Group is with you throughout the process to encourage accountability, support you and provide a confidential sounding board as you align your responsibilities, relationships & communications to achieve success. We work together to course-correct and make necessary adjustments along the way.
- Translate vision to a sequence of action steps to achieve desired outcomes

- Hold one-on-one meetings (weekly, bi-monthly or monthly)
- Course-correct & deal with issues as they arise
- Conduct update meetings with colleagues & other stakeholders as necessary
