Generative processes are those that promote innovation, evolution and growth. To “generate” means to create something new. Thus, the core focus in of generative change is creativity: How do you create a successful and meaningful work life? How do you create great personal relationships? How do you develop a great relationship with yourself—your body, your past, your future, your wounds and your gifts? These are the basic challenges in leading an extraordinary life, and the processes of generative change offer a way to succeed at them.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Define the process of generative change and how it differs from corrective change.
  2. Describe the importance of transforming obstacles as key to generative change.
  3. Explain the role of different levels of change in the process of generative change.
