Effective training and coaching is one of the pillars of success to any sustainable Innovation program. These tips will help the process go as smoothly as possible:
- Share the Joy: As well as the frustrations – communicate what is working and not working.
- Pick the Right Coaches: Not everyone has the psychological make up to be the coach. Knowledge is key, obviously. But the coach needs to be able to motivate, mediate, create camaraderie and a sense of selflessness.
- The One-On-One Touch: Individual coaching provides the privacy and attention that breeds success. I’ve found that discussions regarding areas for improvement are received and acting upon much better in a private session, away from peers, listening-in. This can be especially critical with new employees and/or team members.
- Basics First: Make certain project management basics are taught, applied, and re-taught.
