Context and content

The main support it brings, the issue it tackles.

“Innovation requires having plenty of time.”


This training tackles many pre-conceived ideas that you may have about the process of innovation. This training combines a training course, group coaching and a consulting process into a coherent whole. The three consecutive days are delivered onsite.


Fostering Innovation in the Public Service is directed at any team that wishes to work on and improve a professional situation or a specific problem. As a participant, you attend with one to three other colleagues (with the support of your management) to work on a concrete situation you are facing: it may be a challenge you need to solve or an opportunity you wish to seize. In this course, you are invited to radically change your approach to the process of developing a service, a product or even a policy.


The Innovation skills training course develops empathy, courage, curiosity, creativity, and discipline. It works on how to manage constraints, overcoming a mindset directed towards failure and challenging the status quo.


In its standard format, this training course is followed by a two-hour group coaching session. AIM’s Coaching Offer helps you to bring out and develop your professional, relational, and personal potential. It encourages you to occupy your rightful place in your relationship with yourself, with others and with your environment.
