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?

Growing as a team and in team performance through only cognitive interventions is like swimming without water: it gets very dry …!
High Team Performance in terms of generating new results, human excellence and following the ecologies of mind, body and soul demands mindful perception and action on multiple levels. Somatics is based on the understanding that the spirit, mind, body, self and rationality are inextricably linked; to grow one, you must cultivate the others. Creatively performing from all these sources as individual AND as a team is the purpose of this newly created experiential workshop. Through cutting edge methodology, integrating Generative Change Work, Somatics and Generative Group Dynamics, you go on an experiential learning journey on the interface of individual and collective self.

Each day team sessions are blended in to explore, transfer and amplify the learning from the individual level to the team level – and back. The specific focus here is on weaving a network of creative and productive relationships within a social body (embedded in an organization or larger field) so that individual purpose is in fluid alignment with the teams (larger) mission and actionable skill from each unique member contributes to high collective performance. In somatic movement integration sessions we deepen these inner and outer connections integrating person, team and whole group. Taken together, these frameworks will provide a profoundly positive framework for developing creative systems and exploring the conditions for high performance.
