Navigate your way to innovation that lasts

  • Do you have great ideas for your team and business, but struggle to be heard?
  • Are you exhausting yourself trying to push improvements that aren't getting anywhere?
  • Are you relying on your and others’ discretionary efforts to work 'under the radar' to develop innovative concepts?
  • Are you impatient with the pace of innovation at your organisation?

This class will equip you to:

  • Understand the reasons that make it hard to innovate in most mature organisations.
  • Reframe your thinking about innovating in organisations; your brilliant idea is not enough.
  • Identify winning approaches to get your ideas understood and implemented in your organisation.
  • Get support for your ideas, and make positive change happen in your organisation.

It's time to make that positive change

You have ideas to make things better. A new tool to introduce. A new product line to explore. New customers to pursue. But you're not getting support.

In fact, some people seem opposed to improvement. It is frustrating, discouraging and demotivating. But it doesn't need to be this way - that's why this class exists: to help you find your way forward.

This class is great for:

  • Innovators who want to push new ideas in a medium or large organisation
  • Changemakers who want to challenge the status quo at work
  • Managers who want to enable their teams to innovate faster
  • Individual contributors who want to know how others can support their ideas, big and small

Serious value for serious changemakers

You’re investing in your success as a leader of change. We take that investment seriously, by packing serious value into this class.

This class gives you access to:

  • 2 hours of real-time interactive instruction with Raphael Hammel, a highly-skilled innovation consultant and tertiary educator
  • Your questions answered throughout the class time
  • Online activities and a summary of key points to use with your team after the class
  • An ongoing community of intrapreneurs and changemakers on the Bright Pilots Slack channel

Class outline

Here’s what you can expect from the live online class.

1. Introductions

Introducing your instructor; expectations from attendees and expectations of involvement; class content overview.

2. Innovation in organisations: what is it (and what isnt it)?

Innovation is an oft-used word in organisations, to the point that people may lose clarity on what it actually entails. Let's clear out this confusion, going back to basics and broadening our perspectives on what innovation is, and what it is not.

Group activity: How do you define 'innovation'?

3. Organisations want to innovate So why is it so hard to do?

So many organisations claim on their websites that they are 'innovative'. Most understand that innovation is critical to their continued success, but how come it seems so hard to innovate from within?

Group activity: Why is innovation so hard?

4. Success factors: how can you increase your chances to implement your idea?

What steps can you follow to get support for your idea and progress it to implementation?

Group activity: What techniques did you see that work?

5. What now?

Based on the tactics and examples shared, this is your chance to capture what you want your next intrapreneurship steps to be.

Individual activity: What are my next steps?

6. Wrapping up

Recapping the main points in the class, final Q&A, as well as some other next steps and resources.

I was very impressed with Raph’s ability to deliver engaging content in an online setting. It was great to find someone that really understands the practical challenges and opportunities for those seeking to foster innovation within organisations. Raph doesn’t just give you answers, he makes you think, while providing you with the tools to navigate your own unique situation. Highly recommended to anyone seeking a more innovative future!

Got questions? Here are some answers

This class costs $250 (AUD; Convert to another currency). Newsletter subscribers sometimes get discounts (subscribe here).
This class runs for 2 hours in real-time. It takes place online, and is limited to 10 people per class, to ensure everyone gets enough access and interaction.
There are no prerequisites or assumed knowledge needed to get the most out of this class. Sometimes your instructor will ask about some specific topics at the beginning, but this is mostly to help guide the examples given.

You’ll receive a welcome email with links to add the class to your own calendar, the Zoom link to use, plus a short questionnaire to help us get to know what you most want to get out of the class. This helps us to tailor the class to your needs as much as we can.

You’ll also receive a reminder email 2 days before the class, just as a reminder.

We use the videoconferencing platform Zoom for our classes, which you can use via your web browser, or download here. We sometimes use online canvas applications like Mural or Miro, which you should be able to access and use via your web browser.

If you’re attending one of our drawing classes, you’ll need something to draw with, and something to draw on. We recommend a fine black marker (e.g. Artline200 Fineliner 0.4) or similar. For this sort of drawing, it’s best not to use Sharpies, as they are too thick, and they bleed through regular paper. For the paper, a blank sketchbook is great, but plain ol’ blank office paper is perfectly fine.

Drawing on a digital tablet is great too, and using other markers and pencils (e.g. tint markers like Tombow or Copic, and colour pencils) is also fab.

The only preparation you need to do is to complete a brief online questionnaire. The link is sent with your welcome email. This questionnaire helps you to think more about what you’d like to get most out of the class, plus it helps your instructor know what to focus on.

You might also like to think ahead about (and capture somewhere) how you think you’d like to apply what you learn from this class. For example, there might be specific types of meetings, or a specific project you work on, where you would like to improve.

Be sure to read the class outline above, to give you a sense of the structure and content of this class. If you have any questions after reading this, we’re more than happy to help, and you can drop us a line.

We’re all about involving everyone in an engaging productive way in all our classes, so all classes are pretty interactive.

Our classes have a range of practical and conversational activities, ranging from simple icebreakers to individual hands-on exercises, to discussions in groups of 3 or 4 using breakout groups. There will also be time for Q&A throughout the class, and at the end as well.

Some classes’ activities also include using an online canvas (like Mural or Miro), which all class participants use together.

You will receive a certificate of completion to promote your new credentials. You will also receive links to download the class highlights slide deck, plus any templates shared during the class.

You’ll also receive an invitation to the Bright Pilots Slack community. You can use this community as a way of keeping in touch with others who attended the class with you, as well as ask questions, give and get advice, and share resources.

We understand that sometimes things come up and plans need to change. If you can no longer make it to a class, please let us know before the class date, and we will reschedule you for the same class on a future date that works for you.

You can cancel your registration within 2 days of the class without giving any reason, and receive a full refund. The refund will be paid back within 7 business days of submitting your cancellation request. To cancel, simply contact us here, or email support@brightpilots.com.
