The Generative Leadership Program

The Generative Leadership Program™ (GLP) is designed to fill the gaps in the foundations of traditional management understanding. It leverages and strengthens the competencies and skills that you already have, and gives successful executives and managers a foundation for elevating their own and their team’s performance to new levels. It provides the foundation for increased performance through new paradigms, a focus on building skills through practice, and learning experientially through your actual work and life commitments.

This is an opportunity for leaders, executives, teams, and managers to create more effective organizations. GLP is designed to enable you to take your leadership impact and the performance of your organization to the next level. By participating in GLP you will emerge from the experience with a permanent new way to see action and opportunity in the world and with enhanced power to produce extraordinary results.

This course is for the practicing professional. I was promoted five times in the three years that I was studying with IGL. The program would be worth ten times its cost.

This program goes beyond traditional management learning and teaching to focus on:

  • New Paradigms of Action, Coordination, and Learning – Produce a new way to see the world, action, and management with a new paradigm. Learn how action and coordination is shaped by conversation and commitment. Enter a more powerful framework of embodied learning through practice, going beyond just understanding.
  • Practice, not just Theory – Focus on the competent execution of new action-based practices of management which strengthen your ability to see what to do and get it done in your organization. Relevance and Impact – you are guided to apply these practices in your work to improve your and your team’s effectiveness.
  • Feedback and Coaching – Receive personal coaching twice a month on your challenges and issues in leadership and management on the job.
  • Replacing Old Habits with New – Learn how to go beyond what has previously been difficult for you and to produce new, more effective management habits.
  • Management from Strategy to Execution – Learn new interpretations and skills for leadership, team building, planning and projects, as well as for design and innovation – turning vision into effective action.

This new approach to learning and management practice is based on the advances of leading thinkers of this century. The approach has been developed and refined in dozens of companies and with hundreds of managers over the last eighteen years. Current participants include CEOs, COOs, managing directors, business founders, entrepreneurs, managers, and entire management teams.
