Action Planning

Are you ready to move up in your career but lack specific experience and skills? Do you need to increase your leadership skills quickly? Are you having challenges managing change?

Our action planning sessions help emerging leaders, managers and c-suite leaders create goals and identify their strengths, gaps and leadership purpose.

As a result of the action planning sessions, you will have a completed dashboard that includes your personal profile, (draft) purpose statement, strengths and gaps.

What are people saying!


I’m grateful that Dr. Jessica Blalock is my coach. She has been there through my career and personal milestones. I rely on her insight and approach to tackle challenges that I thought stood in my way. Her coaching has helped me do more and waste time less. She has held me accountable to my goals and made them time bound, which I have found has actually lightened my load and made me more effective and productive in my day to day. I feel more confident as a result and able to achieve more. I’ve also received positive acknowledgement from work with my increased productivity and outputs. Laura

Dr. Blalock provided an elevation to my personal journey of Self Discovery that is unparalleled. During our sessions both together and in conjunction with the great online tools, I found myself further motivated to become more conscious of Self. I further enjoyed the dynamic experience of the assessments she provided to allow quantified analysis of the subject matter we focused on. I especially liked the tailored approach Dr. Jessica employed to allow us to focus on the areas of “Discovery” that were most important to my current and future life plan endeavors. I would highly recommend Dr. Jessica and the Center for Discovery program to individuals and corporations alike. Thank you so much for this priceless experience. Ed 

Thank you so much Dr. Jessica for an amazing experience. By the end of our session, I not only was able to “name” one of my ill-desired behaviors, but I moved through it, accomplishing an amazing fate of moving into my new, vibrant home–a vision I’ve held for over 5 years! I’m sure, this would not have happened as quickly as it did had not I received support, encouragement and guidance from you and the group. And for that, I AM most grateful. Best wishes and I look forward to attending your facilitator’s training soon!  Olivia

My coaching experience was very beneficial, it gave me an opportunity for self discovery; to examine myself closer, and set realistic goals for myself. Also, I realize just how important my attitude and body language is (the two should coincide). Thank you, and much success!!!  Treavius

Dr. Jessica has helped me with managing my stress and unblocking some areas that were inhibiting me from being my best self. As a result, I received two job offers and I am still getting more job offers.  Thank you so much Dr. Jessica. Raychelle

At first I was a little resistant. I’m a private person and don’t do well with someone prying into the who, what, when and why. But……I came to look forward to the sessions. I found them to be informative, and relaxing. (You did offer so well founded suggestions). You also brought out some things in me that I had long forgotten. I’m using them now and its working for my betterment. Diana

I believe that my coaching session was a tremendous help to me with learning how to relax which allowed me to be more productive and the work flow was smoother. I also learned that in my own way I am a leader and that by being a leader doesn’t mean that you always have to be seen but by delegating to others is leading them as well, so basically in being a leader you can be behind the scene and not out front. Also, I was given tips on how to deal with situations when they arise so as not to panic and get frustrated which would cause my pressure to elevate. Thank you for your help and if I need your assistance in the future, I will call you. Valerie
