IDEOI found a wonderful resource for creating our biggest and best life at IDEO.org.  It’s an organization that practices human-centered design to solve some of the world’s most difficult problems.

When I looked more closely into their tools and resources, it seemed to me that coaching is a natural human-centered design activity that we practice every day through our work with clients.

I was first introduced to the three phases of Human-Centered Design in a session on workplace innovation led by Dave Whittington and hosted by Royal Roads University.  It was an energizing presentation that RRU kindly shared and I wanted to pass along.

The dual notions of ‘design thinking’ and ‘creative confidence’ are closely linked to hearing, creating and delivering something awesome.  There’s also a special section devoted to mindsets, and my hope is you’ll enjoy hearing the stories from these creative and inspiring folks as much as I did.

Cheers,

Donna Howes, PCC, CEC, CHRP
