What is coaching for a special project?
Coaching for a special project entails coaching two or more individuals who are working at a common goal. The goal could be a startup, event, or product.

Design Thinking Definition
“If I had an hour to solve a problem, I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem, and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” Albert Einstein
Whether in coaching, or building something big, people reach for problem-solving without understanding the whole landscape first. Design Thinking is a methodology for efficient innovation that always begins with understanding "what is": what do we need and want; what worked, what didn't work, what needs to change, what can we do without, what are we excited about? By discovering what's happening now, we can lay a powerful foundation for future innovating.
