What is Generative Consulting?

To "generate" means to create something new. The focus of Generative Change is to cultivate creativity: in your teams, your venture, your relationships and yourself. Social, technological and economic developments are constantly transforming the world of business and the way in which people, teams and organizations, old and new, must operate. This requires developing new and innovative approaches to address the many challenges of change.
