Bootcamp

Facilitating
Innovation

Equipping facilitators with the skills to drive innovation.

The art and science of facilitation.


1 day • From $299 per person • Available for teams and groups

Whether you're an innovation coach, internal innovator or transformation leader, your ability to facilitate diverse teams through a structured process is critical to the success of changes you are driving.

A great facilitator is able to define a clear intention for a process, guide people through the process of solving problems together, and redirect people when they notice things getting off track. It’s not about giving your participants all the answers - it’s about creating an environment where they feel empowered to figure it out for themselves.

This bootcamp will combine theory with hands-on practice and real-time feedback to boost your skills as a facilitator of innovation, no matter the context.

Our learning style is fast-paced, hands-on and immersive. You'll be applying new skills and mindsets throughout the bootcamp, and you'll walk away with a set of new tools to use in your facilitation work.
