Coaching for innovation is a new way of learning, where the coach is trained to be a teacher, transformer, innovator & coach in speedy, agile & blended ways that help people adapt, grow, compete & flourish through the transformational powers of innovation.
Coaching for innovation helps people examine & adjust their mental models to:

- Be empathic, compassionate & accepting with the challenges (barriers & resistance factors) a person faces internally & externally.
- Ensure that people have clarity around their values to align their mindsets & behaviours & passionate purpose for innovation.
- Generate goals, options & pathways for increasing resilience, agility & entrepreneurial effectiveness in VUCA times.
- Co-create with individuals & teams trusted relationships, a core purpose, team goals, role clarity, problem solving & decision-making processes.
- Take time out for retreat, reflection & exploration of generative discovery of new ways of being, thinking & doing.
