More Information

Workplace coaching equips people with tools and knowledge allowing them to work more effectively and incorporate design thinking into their daily life. With this in mind, we are now introducing a coaching programme dedicated to small teams.

‘We Improvate’ aims at devising a coaching programme for small teams. Design thinking is at the core of We Improvate project:  process useful in tackling problems that are ill-defined or unknown, by re-framing the problem in human-centric ways, creating many ideas in brainstorming sessions, and adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping and testing.

Following the coaching sessions and consultations with our coach, a handbook will be published with practical tips, exercises and examples. It will be accompanied by interactive materials to highlight the role of coaching in workplace innovation. With this action, we’d like to highlight the idea of non-technological factors in innovation.

The Handbook will serve as a guide for other small teams but will allow for some flexibility. As such, the programme can be adapted to the particular situation, context and industry. With a clear and simple structure, we would like to make innovation in the workplace highly accessible.
