Who We Are
A unique framework for elevating your leadership and coaching impact
Generative Leadership brings forth decades of research into our leadership and development programs. When combined with a structure for learning that involves practice through on-the-job application, leaders and coaches find the best integration and use of learning that they know at their core.
From a conversation about IGL:
“What is Generative Leadership?”
What we believe
We believe leadership and coaching can and should be more impactful than just the numbers. In fact, they can produce the numbers while also creating the space for those that we work with to have inspiring and fulfilling lives.
To truly be successful, we must learn. We must practice the skills. It is not sufficient to know about leadership. One must know how to lead (or coach others to lead), from an embodied space. Much like the pro tennis player or a doctor, we must practice our discipline, so that we can perform and lead with finesse.
the power of THE possible
All possibilities exist in conversations.
The possibilities we want to create start in conversations. When we become clear on what matters most, we can engage in conversations with ourselves and others about how we design a desired future state. They are the conversations for new possibilities that produce the results that matter most.
The beauty is that our creative minds can take us far beyond the boundaries that defined our context previously.
Sometimes it calls us to learn new skills, conversations or practices. They are all possible. We all can bring forth the best version of ourselves through the possibilities we bring to the world.
