INNOVATION COACHING

INNOVATION COACHING INVOLVES INSPIRING, EMPOWERING, ENABLING, AND EQUIPPING  LEADERS AND TEAMS TO ADAPT, INNOVATE, GROW AND THRIVE THROUGH DISRUPTION

Innovation coaches empower, enable, and equip you and your team to think and act differently in a VUCA/BANI world in ways that add value to the quality of people’s lives they appreciate and cherish.
To speed up problem-solving and decision-making and embed change, digital, innovation-led, and transformational initiatives involving the people side of innovation, strategically and systemically.
Innovation coaching involves evoking and provoking creative coaching conversations, a generative process contained within a safe holding space where individuals, teams, organisations, unlearn, learn, and relearn to become agile, adaptive, creative, inventive, and innovative in shaping a desired future.

JANET'S APPROACH

Innovation coaching evokes new ways of being, knowing and doing

Our bespoke innovation coaching programs teach, mentor, and coach your people to become adaptive, creative collaborative, courageous, and compassionate to enhance their capacity, confidence, and competence in:

  • Tolerating uncertainty,
  • Re-engaging in hybrid workplaces,
  • Responding positively and creatively to 21st-century disruption,
  • Re-imagining what could be possible to maximise stakeholder engagement and customer satisfaction,
  • Re-balancing and re-setting their resilience to thrive.

By knowing how to be, think, and act differently to sense, see, and solve complex and wicked problems, and develop their agility in responding creatively to unexpected and disruptive events.

To lean into the transformational powers of innovation, lean start-up methodologies, and human-centered design thinking within an emergent and fail-forward context.

It involves generative listening and catalytic questioning, and knowing how to masterfully evoke and provoke creative debates, ask powerful and disruptive questions to disrupt, differ, and deviate from habitual ways of perceiving the world to:


  • Ignite, unleash, and pull people towards anti-conventional, different, creative, and inventive ways of being, thinking, and behaving.


  • Evoke and learn new ways of being, knowing, and doing, to connect, explore, discover, design, and deliver your desired commercially viable, innovative commercial outcome or solution.

“Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present, and that takes practice, but we don’t have to do anything else. We don’t have to advise, or coach, or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and listen.” – Margaret J. Wheatley

BENEFITS

  • Experiment, and fail by learning quickly, taking small bets, iterating, and pivoting to turn promising ideas into workable and innovative solutions by applying start-up methodologies.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

TESTIMONIALS

Over the last two years I have had exposure to other courses and seminars on innovation.  All have provided useful perspective and tools. The Coach for Innovators program is unique in its emphasis on the inner being, attitudes and personal practices that underlie the ability to coach innovation.  The program is resource rich and offers particularly powerful questions that can serve to be safely disruptive to the status quo.
