Business Growth through Innovation Coaching

John Leary-Joyce, Business Growth through Innovation Coaching.
Without innovation companies stagnate and eventually die.To support change and growth requires a clear-out of outdated systems, processes & people to leave room for renewal, fresh approaches and new ideas.But it takes courage and determination to risk letting go of the old and familiar especially if it still works. How often we hear the phrase "If it ain't broke don't fix it" – a recipe for disaster. Interestingly the recession has pushed those companies under but made the adaptive ones stronger.Innovation Coaching involves challenging the coachee whether individual, team or organisation to push the boundaries, to be open to new possibilities; supporting them to experiment, to risk failing and to learn from mistakes so they continue to grow.But innovation also needs to be balanced with structure, stability, solidity to convert those great ideas, seemingly unrealistic fantasies and wild daydreams into productive grounded products and services. So any coaching approach that focuses on innovation needs to encompass both the supporting structure and the creative process.The method I've developed has both a structured model with the acronym C.R.E.A.T.E and a dynamic process called Being C.R.E.A.T.I.V.E. To find out more, join me for this free taster webinar where I'll outline my method.AND…. keep Thursday June 27th 8 – 10am free in your diary so that if you like the taste then you'll join me for the whole meal – a full explanation, illustration and experience of the model and practice.

Join CTI Founder Karen Kimsey-House and CTI Neuroscience consultant Ann Betz for a fascinating look at the power of expectations. In this lively half hour pre-conference session, we'll explore the art and science of one of the key tenets of Co-Active coaching: Holding Others as Naturally Creative, Resourceful, and Whole. Not only do our expectations color our view of reality, according to current research on the brain, when we see our clients as whole, able and creative, they actually become much more so. And as coaches, when we both model this view and teach our clients to bring it to others in their lives, effectiveness and connection both increase dramatically, while stress decreases. As one of the founders of the entire field of coaching, Karen holds a depth of knowledge about human development that is unsurpassed, and was one of last year's WBECS most talked about and downloaded speakers. Ann is a true thought leader in the emerging world of brain-based coaching and brings a curiosity and passion for her topic that never fails to engage you deeply. Specifically You Will Learn:
  • We shape the world by our expectations. Leaders can use this knowledge intentionally to create more engagement and productivity.

Ask 100 executive coaches (and other high-end advisors) about which type of client they would love to do more work with, and 90 will tell you the same thing.

Senior executives and the C-suite.

It’s the Holy Grail. To be perceived as a trusted advisor and build long-term relationships with senior people inside blue chip corporations.

Understandable. It’s where the action is. Where the money is. Where decisions are made. Where impact is made. But getting there is far from easy. What worked yesterday no longer works today.

Many executives coaches struggle to keep the relationships they have, let alone build new ones.

But there is a small minority of high-end executive coaches and advisors that are successfully building new relationships, securing new business and doing the work they love - with clients they love.

What’s the difference ? In this session, you will learn:
