We believe that learning and developing skills to become innovative requires behavior changes that are best learned through time and repetition. Our training programs provide highly-experiential activities that may span over three to six month months and may combine any combination of in person, virtual and hybrid training and coaching. This ensures that once the initial training is over, the participants learn to apply their skills in their job, practice and have an opportunity to discuss successes and challenges with peers and a coach.
We use a blend of Creative Problem Solving, Design Thinking, and Ethnographic approaches for developing innovative process as well as the Foursight® instrument to help build more innovative teams. Our customized programs last three months to a year and focus on building skills through applied training then in job learning and individual and team coaching as well as booster programs and reflection.
We have learned that training is not enough to really change behaviors and tackle complex challenges. Complementary coaching services ensure that, once the initial training is over, teams and/or individual can get the customized support they need for their on-going project. Coaching support may include helping preparing meeting outlines, selecting best tools for collaborative meetings, weekly check-up discussions with the team to support them moving forward on an innovation project or supporting a team doing some ethnographic research and interviews.
Our coaching is different from general coaching —we focused exclusively on supporting innovation projects and a team’s ability to create impactful change.
