COACHING PATHWAY : Generative Coaching

Generative Coaching Certification Program with Robert Dilts & Stephen Gilligan

robert-dilts-institut-repere-pnlCoaching is the process of helping another person to perform at the peak of his or her abilities. It involves drawing out that person's strengths, helping the person to overcome internal resistances and interferences, and facilitating him or her to function as a part of a team. The term "coach" comes from the older French word coche, which meant "a wagon or carriage". In fact, the word still carries this meaning today. Thus, the process of coaching is about moving a person or group from some present state to a desired state. Historically, coaching has been typically focused toward achieving improvement with respect to a specific behavioral performance. Generative coaching, however, involves helping people evolve at an identity level and achieve outcomes that are completely new.

Generative Coaching Certification Program with R. Dilts & S. Gilligan


stephen-Gilligan-Institut-repereTraditional coaching tends to organize around first- and second-order change, not really requiring radical shifts in consciousness or identity.  Generative coaching focuses on second- and especially third-order (identity) transformation.  "Generative" means to create a result (in identity, systemic organization, behavioral pattern, internal consciousness, cultural or corporate creation) that has never existed before in the world.  Generative coaching is working with clients to be able to realize this power.

Generative coaching is especially interested in a client's (1) highest values, goals, and callings;  (2) passions, resources, energetic connections (friends, foes, communities, gifts); and (3) non-rational crises that seem to threaten identity (symptoms, breakdowns, etc.)
Generative coaching seeks to create the specific conditions of higher consciousness (somatic, cognitive, and field) that can utilize all of the above to generate radical new realities. The practical process of how to do this is the focus of this course.

The program will combine tools of Third Generation NLP and Stephen Gilligan's Generative Self to help people reach their deepest potential including:

o Developing the ability to accept and hold faults, in ourselves and others, without judgment.
o Learning to recognize and create a space for potential without expectation.
o Deepening and aligning levels of connection with ourselves and others
o Expanding awareness of "fourth position" and the "field"
o Establishing practices for remaining grounded and present in the face of uncertainty, vulnerability and difficult feelings

Generative coaching is the process of applying principles of generative change to help guide ourselves and others to a desired state. Generative coaching is essentially about being an awakener. Awakening others involves supporting them to grow at the level of vision, mission and spirit. An awakener supports another person by providing contexts and experiences which bring out the best of that person's understanding and awareness of purpose, self, and his or her role within the larger systems of which he or she is a part. It is obvious that it is not possible to awaken others if you yourself are still asleep.  So the first task of the awakener is to wake up and stay awake. An awakener "awakens" others through his or her own integrity and congruence.
