The International Association for Generative Change is dedicated to promoting Generative Change globally in many different ways. We offer certification, membership, learning experiences and a community to those professionals who are interested in creating a world to which we all want to belong. Generative Change (GC) means creating something beyond what has yet existed, either in one's personal or professional life. To generate means to create something new. Thus, the core focus in 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 your self, your body, your past, your future, your wounds and your gifts?
