Training Workshops, Speaking, and Coaching

Change demands more from teams

The best people to make change in an organization are the ones that are already there. The Centre for Citizen Experience provides workshops, speaking, coaching, and creation of custom resources to help them succeed. By investing in design capability you are giving your team the skills they need to face uncertain challenges now and in the future.

Custom tailored skill development

We all know that transformation takes time, talent, and tenacity—and the right tools and teams. That takes training to build on the great skills that your teams already have, but most design training offerings are the same cookie cutter courses offered to everyone.

Instead, Jess works with leaders and teams to understand and evaluate current capability, assess organizational needs for design skills and attitudes, and then provides tailored insights, information, and hands-on experience that executives, managers, and frontline teams need. This design capability builds on existing skills and practices to expand the innovation and design tools that teams have for transforming the service experience, designing policy, and creating an organizational engine for citizen-centric insight and strategy.

Please get in touch to discuss how training, workshops, and coaching can improve your organization’s own design innovation capability.
