Generative Leadership Coaching in Organizations

Coaching has become an expanding field. The Institute for Generative Leadership (IGL) has been training coaches since 2008 in the specialties of coaching leaders and coaching in organizations in our Coaching Excellence in Organizations (CEO) program. 

If you are interested to expand the value and impact of your coaching to organizational clients and coachees who are leaders in organizations, then we invite you to explore the CEO program. It is based on IGL’s leadership development experience since 1981 and provides extensive ICF CCEU’s (40 units for year 1, 40 units for year 2 and 3)

The IGL generative coaching skills are based on the IGL’s experience of over forty years with the essential dynamics of effective leadership, teamwork, and value creation customized to a client situation. In the CEO program you learn by doing, bringing in new coaching frames and skills to your clients, and you engage in a required client project with a learning team to apply your new skills. You’ll learn how to make and fulfill new offers of greater value.

Generative coaching includes the practices and perspectives of generative leadership so you can coach from the leadership experiences, as well as the coaching context of a performance art. As generative coaches we are changing the awareness, behaviors, thinking, and presence of our coachees. We include learning in somatics, emotions and moods, language, stories, and the skills of learning and changing habits through practice. 

In the next 12 months you will be introduced to learning and coaching the practices to make and manage promises and to establish the conversations and practices of effective teamwork. CEO Year 2 is focused on leadership skills and practices and year 3 is focused on making bigger and more valuable coaching offers to organizations than you ever have before.


Thousands of professionals, from managers to executives, and coaches to consultants, have learned new skills to support them in their career path and organizations. Here are just a few of them that have produced exceptional results through their study and practice with the Institute

Andrés Novoa

Transformation Agent | Senior Coach & Consultant

"I was coming from an ontological training and generative leadership seemed like the appropriate continuation of my training in order to be able to work with leaders and organizations. Specially because I saw the difference it was making in others had begun their journey before me. It has given me an embodied learning that lives “under the skin” in my daily life, and it has enabled me to work with leaders in organizations, making a living out of it."

Jan Irene Miller

Director, Atos Origin USA

“When I was a new business unit director, every lesson I got was immediately put into practice. This allowed to me to design and set up a framework for people to act in and enabled my team to function well. It allowed me to have the success of building a team that was thrilled to be working together with the same principles.”

John Lazar

Founder and CEO, John B. Lazar & Associates, Inc.

"I’ve been involved in generative learning since the early 80s. Generative distinctions are embedded and embodied in me, my listening, perspective and approach to clients and to life in general. I love the flavor of sense-making it offers and the opportunities it provides. Opportunities for learning, partnership, development, responsibility, grounded assessments and results to take a stand for."
