Mini case study: problem solving.
A small biotech company invited Barker Dewson to coach senior and middle managers to develop approaches to problem solving and innovation. Using a combination of GROW and other coaching models, the coaches learned to adapt their own thinking styles and develop confidence in their preferred problem solving approaches. The company moved away from 'group think' and unlocked new ways of working, driving growth and winning awards for innovation.
