When I was initially introduced to GKI’s methods, I called it “brain yoga”, but since completing the Generative Coaching Workshop (Level 1), I now realize it’s so much more… I now see it as a set of exercises that allows me to journey deep into my inner core, shedding the norms (social, cultural, etc.) and education that created a gap between who I truly am, and through conditioning, who I’ve become. After the workshop I re-emerged, rediscovering Me! I admittedly came in pretty charged up, but since then - several weeks later - my momentum has only accelerated, with me re-identifying and being true to myself, things are starting to get SCARY good, I’m excited for the future and can’t wait for level 2.

Generative Knowledge is the key to my leadership as an Operations Director for a US 500 company. The Generative Coaching skills and Generative knowledge helps me unlock my hidden knowledge, enhance my strengths and embrace positive change within me and around me. When I’m facing personal or career changes, I will use generative knowledge to examine how my inner capacities support the changes I want to make. People who work with me naturally feel comfortable and engaged whenever I do Generative Coaching with them. It allows them to discover their own inner motivation, which in turn, helps them make the changes they need in order to support our entire team….

Learning generative methods as part of my MBA program at the University of Michigan literally changed my life. I gained clarity on my strengths but most importantly, I learned about the specific types of people, places and situations that bring out the best in me. I learned to find other peoples' superpowers too. I’ve applied these methods in all areas of my life: with friends, colleagues, athletes and entrepreneurs, as well as my current role at an AI tech startup. I've coached complete strangers who discovered things about themselves they never knew…

The first time I learned Generative Knowledge Interviewing, I knew my life would never be the same again. I learned things about myself that totally surprised me. I realized that my shortcomings - the things I really didn’t like about myself  - were all part of my underlying wholeness. I learned I could turn my mistakes into my superpowers; that it was all part of me coming to terms with my purpose

Generative Knowledge methods never result in what I expect. The results are always much better, so much more than I could've imagined. I've taken three workshops to date, and been coached once. I came to the Generative Coaching workshop thinking there was nothing new I could learn. I was so glad to be wrong. The unpacking is so profound. Through them I've unearthed intelligences and capacities, been introduced  to new yet old methods of listening, been connected to my embodied knowledge and in turn, my wholeness. I’ve come to better understand the contexts in my life that are disabling -- that render me disembodied, and more importantly, the contexts that allow me to thrive.  To the extent I'm willing to sit with it..stand in it--continue the "work," the impact is seismic, affecting me and the people I connect with.

As the creator of Digication, an ePortfolio platform used by millions of students in over 6,000 K-12 institutions, I have come across many innovative methods for learning and change. At the very cutting edge, GKI pushes the envelope the furthest. It is simple to implement, engaging for participants, and impactful beyond any conventional expectations. In continuing to develop next generation learning tools at Digication, my team and I are constantly incorporating GKI principles at our core. I truly believe we are just scratching the surface of how GKI can help democratize learning for generations to come!

It is so useful and gratifying for our students to have their peers identify the hidden skills, values and capacities that are evident in their own unconscious experiences -- but never before named. Because it is based on their own data, It changes their view of themselves and what they see themselves as capable of achieving in the world. They are always surprised by what they discover…

When our undergraduate student leaders and peer mentors go through the Generative Coaching and Integrative Knowledge Portfolio training each year, it truly transforms their lives, their mentees, and our entire program [the HIspanic Student Success Initiative].  They not only learn how to identify their own hidden sources of passion, motivation and strength, but more importantly, they learn how to be a clear mirrors for each other and their families. It is truly a life-changing experience. They apply these methods directly in their lives and then use them to transform their communities…
