What is Co-Inspiration

Co-Inspiration sessions are for people who want to expand their tunnel vision and see their goals and challenges in a fresh perspective, providing new possibilities to achieve objectives and overcome obstacles in personal and professional life.

It is a dynamic, fun and effective process, used by individuals, teams and organizations to support each other with ideas, collective intelligence, unthought-of solutions and deep questions, covering a wide range of topics from lifestyle to social issues to corporate innovation.

In facilitated sessions, each participant presents a current challenge / question, and others co-create as many ideas, inspiration and solutions as possible to connect unseen dots, tap into the power of collective intelligence and help the presenter generate new possibilities and take action, for:

teams, productivity, strategic decisions projects, startupsquestions in business and personal lifegoals and objectives




Co-Inspired Organizations



Inspiring ideas & impactful action

Collective Intelligence

We all have a lot of knowledge, skills, experience, ideas and wisdom that are not tapped into, because we don’t talk much about what we are working on, where we are stuck, what we could need help with and support others with. In Co-Inspiration, people from the most different backgrounds get together and look at your situation through their different perspectives, expanding your tunnel-vision and connecting dots previously unseen.

Peer-Support & Accountability

When we explore new ideas and possibilities for our professional and personal lives, we might get stuck in old patterns, beliefs and behaviors. Having a diverse group and team by our side, we can benefit from inspiration, encouragement, support, a broadened perspective and accountability. What's difficult for you might be easy for someone else and vice versa.

Generosity & Kindness

Most people love to help. Helping others makes us feel good, we learn, we have fun, we feel connected. Co-Inspiration is built on the foundation of generosity and kindness through supporting others with ideas and inspiration, providing a space that invites people to step into this natural human tendency.

Taking Action

Ideas are worthless if they are not acted upon. Part of a Co-Inspiration session is to break down big ideas into small steps and support each other and oneself to take big action and make an impact, in one's personal life, professional life and society.
