Course description

Innovative Thinking Trainer Certification

Train others to think innovatively to boost their career and success. Being a VCI-Certified Innovative Thinking Trainer, powered by Innovation Styles®, is an exciting and rewarding move for your career. 

Training 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 a 1-day workshop that's been used successfully around the world. The workshop design is organized into 8 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” training 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 Trainer 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.

Strategic Consultant
I've tried several creativity assessments and I'm glad - at long last - to find the Innovation Styles® that seems ideal and resonates with my global audience.
Talent Development Executive
Every time I have a new engagement, VCI always goes all out of their way to make sure the customers’ needs are 100% satisfied. One time I had a customer from the banking industry in China, VCI did all the research to find relevant cases that would support teaching the Innovation Styles® well.
Lead Principal
We have been certified in Innovation Styles® and have used this learning in one of our business units. My team and I have worked with VCI in assessing ourselves and also participating and interacting in the classroom sessions. We are very pleased with the outcome.
