Build the power to innovate into your organization.

An innovation coach inspires, supports, and coaches your team to nurture innovation in the organization.

Coaching can be employed during the execution of projects or at the executive level to define strategies. When you hire an innovation coach, they will give hands-on support to challenge your existing thinking and enable further growth. Your coach will push through the status quo by bringing your team energy, creativity, and a startup mindset.

Program overview

Embed innovation in your organization.

Our approach to innovation coaching.

  • Building capabilities: you have a great team and you want to optimize their innovation capabilities.
  • Coaching for business results: you have an innovative product or service in mind and you need guidance for further execution, experimentation, validation, or market launch.
  • External challenger: you have a team with an innovation coach and you want to raise the bar by bringing in an external perspective.

Methodologies like design thinking, lean methods, and service design require a shift in mindset. Using creative coaching techniques, our innovation coaches challenge people to think differently and ensure that teams tackle projects based on the customer’s needs instead of coming from the organization’s perspective.

Our innovation coaches guide teams to business success by teaching skills such as ideation, concept development, business modeling, and pitching. This can be done through participatory workshops or individual coaching on projects.

We build capabilities, not dependencies. At the end of your journey, our coaches equip the teams with entrepreneurial skills and the ability to apply a customer-centric way of working, without depending on us.

Our innovation coaches can create a custom-tailored playbook to ensure successful continuation after training is over. This lets organizations stay close to their customers while delivering quick results.
