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, INnCREASE – Poland-based company – is introducing a coaching programme dedicated to small teams.
At INnCREASE we believe that innovative work is a happier workplace. Coaching fosters a positive attitude and diversity in the workplace. With Start at Best, we have a great opportunity to participate in a coaching programme aimed at unlocking our team potential.
The coach will help us drive new ideas and systems and find new and better ways of doing things and solving problems through systemic inventive thinking and design thinking. Moreover, with this coaching programme, we aim at improving key skills such as mindful listening, asking powerful questions or giving feedback.
‘We Improvate’ Project
‘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.
Handbook for small teams
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.
