“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”.
