Innovation Coaching

Developing Leaders & Empowering Teams

Is innovation and transformation important (to you and your team)?
Do you want to lead a successful team?
Or be part of a high-performing team?

Traditional executive coaching asks: “How do I become a successful leader?”

Innovation coaching asks:

“Given who I am, who I know and what I know, what kind of innovation leader could I become?
What kind of innovation culture could I create?
How can I help my team thrive?”

Leading teams today is a challenge, and team performance has never been more critical. Using proven practices and tools, innovation coaching helps you, the leader, bridge the gap between where you are now and what you know could be possible. Work more productively, be more strategic, spend more time on ‘big picture stuff’ and less time on ‘business as usual’.

Hargraves innovation coaching develops leaders and empowers team members with practical skills to engage key stakeholders, influence outcomes and improve performance, productivity and growth.

Because when you build innovation into the corporate DNA, it lasts. It just becomes part of what you do – today and tomorrow.

Innovation Coaching & Collaboration

At Hargraves, we’ve been working with leaders and teams for almost two decades. And after thousands of conversations, we know what makes innovation happen.

Our 3-step coaching program helps leaders and teams (of any shape, size or sector) address the challenges of today and tomorrow.

  1. Identify the blockers to team success (problem definition).
  2. Change and transform (through facilitation and tools).
  3. Maintain momentum (coaching and support).

The Hargraves Innovation Coaching Program develops leaders and empowers teams through community, collaboration and innovation.

Challenging the thinking is the reason to join Hargraves because they are both a great sounding board and encyclopaedia of information and contacts to help you find the best solution to a complex problem or situation.

Program Outline

Innovation Coaching is a flexible program that we can adapt to meet your needs.

After preliminary conversations, we’ll provide a program proposal addressing your team’s unique objectives and desired outcomes, based on our 3-step model – problem definition, facilitation and tools, and coaching and support. The proposal will recommend the type of workshop (content and audience seniority), timing and duration (1 day or equivalent), how we deliver (face-to-face, online or both) and what tools or materials will be used.


  1. Problem Definition:
    A ‘Conversational-Style’ Review (Health Check)
    to analyse specific priority areas and performance, set clear actionable objectives and explore related strategies, tools and methods.

    eg. using the Hargraves Innovation Health Check to understand your strengths, priorities and related performance, and more.

  2. Facilitation and Tools:
    A Custom Learning (Training/Workshop)
    designed and delivered to address identified objectives. 
    eg. a strategy session, problem-solving workshop or team-building workshop.

  3. Innovation Coaching and Support
    Be empowered and maintain momentum through ongoing one-on-one coaching and support from our experts.

    eg. a quick chat when you need a different perspective, or regular planned sessions.

    (Innovation Coaching is ongoing for up to 12 months and includes a brief report and suggested next steps.)
