ImpactBank's the Kickass Koach is hosted by Roxanne "Rox" Bartel. Rox uses stories and tips to support your thinking and exploration to help you navigate your career and life.

Rox is a Speaker, Coach and Workshop Facilitator who started ImpactBank and the Kickass Koach podcast to support leaders as they transitioned into leadership roles. Recently Rox had occasion to accept a few millennial clients and has become passionate about making her work to support them in their quest to build a career that inspires them while honouring their values.

Rox is setting out on a new journey starting in the summer of 2018 to build a system of workshops and group coaching opportunities to use social learning approaches in a coach-like style for professional men and women in their 30's. These systems help you uncover and redesign the patterns that have held you down. Together we'll be innovative and curious, mindful and open, solution and action oriented. Being #selfaware is just the start of the process AND it leads to a GREAT future.

I get it that there are times people are too cautious and resist taking action. While leaders need to take action - often decisive action - leaping without preparation may be okay for the action adventurer - NOT for a leader who wants people to follow.

This week we talk about readying yourself for the action step.

We've talked about: getting on your mark with reflection and observation; getting set with inquiry that drives insight; today we talk about bringing both of these together into the final readiness before action.

It may feel like this four step approach will slow you down and make you less effective - I caution you that when you leap and pull your team down with you, you will be much less effective that when you get comfortable flowing through these four stages as you transition into a new team or prepare for a new project or a major change initiative.

It is stage 3 of the 4 stages - your focus is on the planning and the communication before GO-Time. You were flooded with the insights during the reflection stage and you have now examined them and validated their relevance as you have examined the data and sought diverse input - now you are ready to build, test and communicate a plan to move forward.
