I enrolled in Janet’s program because I needed CEU’s and was intrigued by the name she created, ImagineNation, which is telltale to Janet’s focus on creating innovative thinking. By letting go of ideas I hold on to as truths, I can open up space for new ideas that I never before imagined. Janet challenges me when I tell her why something is the way it is, “What if you let go of that?  What if you put your hands up instead of holding on?

What the program includes:

Evidence Based Case Study

 Participants incorporate their own business problem as an evidence based case study to refer to throughout the program.  They apply this as an action learning assignment, to learn how to see, respond to and solve people and business problems in the context of innovation. They will…..

  • Apply the concepts, principles and techniques presented in the program, to their ‘real life’ problem, opportunity or constraint.
  • Practice being, thinking and acting creatively to generate creative ideas and innovative solutions.
  • Learn to innovate by experimenting, playing, doing and failing without punishment or retribution.

Participants learn the key practices of Generative Discovery and Learning which include:

  • Be mindfully present – Deeply observe, listen and unplug.
  • Reflect and contemplate – Explore what is really going on? Who am I be-ing?
  • Creating a safe and collective holding space – Container for Change and Creativity.
  • Listening generatively to the whole system and whole person simultaneously.
  • Puncturing the status quo with generative questions – Create ‘cracks’ and collisions to elicit possibilities for change and innovation.
  • Operating outside of the box – Debate constructively and generatively to emerge creative ideas and create out of the box solutions.

What else is included in the program?

  1. Weekly Webinars

The program consists of 8 two hour group coaching webinars, held weekly, for 8 weeks.

Each session includes;

  • A focused review of the key learning concepts, principles and weekly action learning assignments.
  • A structured coaching skills practice session, consisting of a nominated coach and coachee, followed by group and specific facilitator feedback.
  • A range of group generative discussions on each key topic to support its application to real life.
  • A self study program consisting of weekly home play talks, including relevant reading articles, blogs, u-tubes, internet links and TED Talks.

  1. Individual Coaching Support

Each participant schedules four individual 45 minutes coaching sessions with the Program Presenter, to ensure that the concepts, principles and techniques are being applied and practiced. This also serves to ensure that any personal barriers are revealed and resolved.

I’d like to warmly recommend the “Coach for Innovators” program. This great experience has not only taught me the principles and mechanisms of innovation and creativity, but has also managed to connect me personally, and to the deeper layer, into the mindsets and then the behaviors I wanted to learn about. If you want to really know what innovation is and how to lead and coach people to innovation, than this program is for you.

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”.
