Coaching is for everyone
Coaching and mentoring is a casual, often phone or email based service to help people understand innovation, IP Strategy, strategic planning and product development. Our principles have been chosen to coach many National Science Foundation, Worlds Best Technologies and SBIR phase I and II companies for over 20 years. Our typical coaching client is a CEO of a small to mid-sized company who has hit some sort of roadblock, either internally or externally. Our coaching employs more advanced tools than most other “personal coaches” who focus on the personality of the individual. We include personality, but go much further and look at market dynamics, competition, IP Strategy, Innovation Quotient (the firms ability to capitalize on inventiveness of its employees), policies and pay.
We are experts at family run organizations and the complexities of multiple generation issues.
We wrap it all up in a holistic analysis and recommendations. We use a series of Q&A sessions coupled to a QFD analysis to present a roadmap to the coaching experience.
Everything is flexible, and we work within your financial and time budget, often extending the service to the direct reports where more actionable change is required.
Our goal is to help the family make informed decisions - you are in control - we act as that impartial sounding board you have always needed.
The Innovation Quotient (TM, Pat.)
Innovation Quotient (TM, Patented) Self Evaluator: Using the highly acclaimed proprietary Intelligent Innovation self evaluation process as used by the National IP Taskforce, we will present real techniques for evaluating and improving your organizations' ability to grow new and original products and services. The short test produces a graph showing your organization's ability to capitalize on its own innovations as compared to a database of over 10,000 companies. This powerful tool starts the process of healthy analysis and forms the basis for understanding the good and bad policies and procedures in your organization. In combination with our coaching and talks, the I-Quotient tool helps everyone understand the value of their contributions. The talks are filled with real-life lessons from the most successful firms, and you will learn how to balance a full product portfolio of new and existing offerings. You can choose from one of John's past successful keynotes or he will customize an event for your specific organizational needs. .
