Innovative Thinking Coach Certification

Innovation Styles®: Certification as an Innovative Thinking Coach

Being a VCI-Certified Innovative Thinking Coach, powered by Innovation Styles®, is an exciting and rewarding move for your career. Your coaching will enable people to transform their solutions to everyday work challenges from ordinary to innovative.

Coaching people to recognize the different ways we like to think innovatively is a key to strengthening their innovative teamwork. We all have our own unique approach to meeting an innovative challenge, using our own mixture of 4 Innovation Styles®: Visioning, Modifying, Exploring, and Experimenting. To lead and cultivate a healthy environment for business innovation, each style must be recognized, valued, and put to its best use… while practicing versatility among all 4 styles.

In your certification training, you’ll learn to conduct 7 different coaching sessions. Your online course will be organized into the 7 sessions, each with its own objectives, videos, and exercises to choose from.

Once you’ve completed your online study and practice, we’ll coach you before and after your first “live” sessions, to make sure you’ll be confident and successful from the very start. And, we’re always here to support you when you need us.

To become a Certified Coach using Innovation Styles®, you’ll need to complete a VCI Innovative Thinking course, and you or your organization will need a VCI license agreement. Contact us for more details.
