Hello, I’m Ralph Kison and I’d like to welcome you to the Kison website. Let me tell you a bit about what I do and how I help organizations and individuals to fulfill their true potential.

Three ways organizations can create a more meaningful work environment for their employees include:


STRATEGY: Sharpen and refine your existing strategy or develop one for the first time.


COACHING: Enable people to be more effective leaders and managers. Create a high-performance, high-impact, and high-engagement transformational work environment.


CONSULTING: Get the best employees in the right roles through an analytical assessment and utilization of strengths and personality profiles including powerful psychometric tools. (Put round pegs in round holes!) Future-proof your workforce today by putting employees in the right roles, creating effective onboarding, career development, and engagement strategies.

Now, let me tell you a little bit about my philosophy when it comes to working with individuals.

I believe that most people, especially leaders and senior executives, undersell themselves and even suffer from self-doubt that limits their success and ability to be a powerful resource to their team and organization. It can also limit their ability to find fulfillment in what they are doing.

I’m here to tell you, you’re better than you think you are!

When we work together, there are five steps we will take to inspire your growth and create an actionable plan to enable you to realize your full potential and maximize your impact.

Motivation: Together we will identify your “Why” and refine what motivates, inspires and drives you to make a difference and have a positive impact.

Goals: Next we will determine what your goals are, the outcomes you are seeking and how you will measure them.

Assess: Then, we will identify who you really are. Using a variety of tools, we will conduct a personality and strengths assessment, identify blind spots and self-limiting beliefs, and determine what areas need to be developed.

Development Plan: Very intentionally, we will create a plan that will guide your growth and development over the long haul. You will know exactly what to do to get to and stay at the top so that you can be the best “you” possible.

Coaching and Support: Finally, you will have me in your corner as your coach, resource, and supporter. I am there to ensure you have a realistic sense of your current state and have a plan and the tools to grow and feel good about your progress while continuing to challenge you to take it to the next level.

A coach helps us become what we can’t be on our own and creates a safe space to work through challenges and issues that we can’t or shouldn’t share with others.

If you’re ready to get better, let’s connect and talk about how you can grow.
