Personal Coaching Program AT DT Academy

So you read all the books and articles on Service Design & Design Thinking. You attended a few training sessions. You listened to inspirational keynote speakers at conferences. You know the famous case studies. You get it. And you are eager to start applying what you have learned in your daily working environment.

Now it’s Monday morning. You’re back at work, so where do you start? How do you use and implement the Service Design Thinking methods and tools in your daily work? How do you create sponsor buy-in? How do you involve stakeholders? DesignThinkers Academy can help you out. We designed an Online Personal Coaching Program to help you kick-start this personal implementation process. To support you, inspire you and nudge you when needed.

The online individual program will always be designed custom-made to meet your specific demands and will consist of 1 intake and 4 Online Personal Coaching training sessions. This way you can immerse yourself into the world of Service Design Thinking, optimize your training skills, learn by doing and make sure we train the specific tools and knowledge you are looking for. You will be connected to an online Homework Environment where you will have access to your custom-made program, your personal challenges, homework assignments and we will also provide you with all the tools and background information you need, to get started to really use Service Design Thinking in your daily working environment.


Quote Petra Pecarevic, Participant Personal Coaching Program:
‘The experience I had with DT Academy was valuable as it broadened my understanding of design thinking and the possibilities and application of the approach and tools in a variety of business situations, but also to re-think and set the foundations for my own business venture. The individual training programme is a must for anyone considering entering the field of service design as an active practitioner!’
