I can support your growth to become an effective leader of innovation.

Innovation Coaching

Innovation Coaching for Leaders who want to guide their organisation towards profitable transformation.

A rolling of one to one coaching for senior or aspiring innovation leaders. You have decided to take the step towards innovation excellence but want the reassurance of a guide and coach while tapping into the innovation management methods appropriate to your situation. The result is renewed confidence in being able to lead and guide an organisation towards transformation.

If 80% of CEOs state that innovation is a top 3 priority, why do only a minority take action? In a time of significant economic disruption, a company must be ‘match fit’ to renew itself and to thrive. The same is true of leaders. High Innovation performance comes from the company becoming agile in several areas with personal leadership of innovation at the top of the agenda.

Why do you need this?

You want personal expert-led support as part of a short-term challenge or your longer-term personal development.
