Career Coach For the Technology Leader
Our mission is to coach your innovation leaders to do their jobs better and achieve greater impact. Leading Innovation, R&D, and New Product Introduction is really tough. You must have the technical credentials to understand, the track record to have credibility, the people skills to engage others, and the business savvy to work across the organization and beyond.
All of Cliff Spiro's programs are customized to meet your needs. A combination of seminars in a larger group format along with frequent private, individual coaching sessions has worked well. Generally Cliff visits your site every 2-3 months, while touching base with his clients in the interim.
Most Innovation Executives are spread thinly, and need to be outwardly facing- with customers, suppliers, cross-functionally, and with the technical community. This leaves precious little time for addressing your up-and-coming leaders' growth needs. Cliff supplements your role in developing your staff.
