Generative Coaching with Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan
Saturday 3 November 2018 – Tuesday 21 May 2019
Venue: Regents College, Inner Circle Regents Park, NW1 4NS
Judith Lowe and Robbie Steinhouse are proud to sponsor the UK program of this radical new coaching method developed and present by Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan.
Robert Dilts is regarded by many as the leading thinker in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). He is the founder of NLP University in Santa Cruz and creator of development tools such as the Hero’s Journey, the Disney Model, Reimprinting and the Logical Levels.
Stephen Gilligan was mentored by both Milton Erickson and Gregory Bateson, and is generally regarded as the person who has done the most to develop Erickson’s ideas and practices in ways that are both creative but true to the original spirit.
To be ‘generative’ means to create results that have never existed before: it is what entrepreneurs, artists, philosophers and inspirational leaders do. Generative Coaching is a set of tools for working with clients to enable them to discover and harness this extraordinary power within themselves. It enables clients to transcend problems rather than just ‘sort’ them, and to move on to new, previously unimagined levels of creativity in both their personal and professional lives. Unlike conventional coaching, Generative Coaching welcomes crises and threats to identity and works with them, treating them as golden opportunities for deep personal change.
The course is perfect for coaches or therapists seeking to upgrade their skills; for HR or related professionals in ambitious organisations keen to get the best from their people; for anyone trained in NLP who wants to discover where the discipline is headed and to study with its two most original and inspirational thinkers. Lastly it provides what we believe is the most powerful methodology for professional coaching available today.

Module 1 with Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan
In Module 1 we will establish how Generative Coaching differs from traditional coaching methods and explore how to create the conditions that support generative change through the four stages of generative coaching:
Integration into ordinary reality.
Participants will also learn strategies for helping themselves and others be more centred, grounded, aligned and connected with the source of their resources. This module will also explore principles and practices for mastering the “inner game”. Some topic areas include:
Large C and small c coaching
Creating conditions for generative change
Third generation NLP and self-relations: Working with the somatic, cognitive and field minds
The three levels of consciousness: primitive, ego, generative
The journey of the generative self
Developing the “inner game”
Deep structure and surface structure
Ego and soul
Skills of sponsorship
Grounding, centering and aligning yourself
COACHing versus CRASHing
Generating new choices through archetypal energies
Module 2 with Stephen Giligan
In Module 2 we will explore the impact of different levels of learning on generative change. Participants will discover some of the factors that limit or prevent generative change and how to transform internal blocks, symptoms and resistances. A key focus will be on the role of beliefs in both enriching and inhibiting generative change. Topics to be covered include:
Levels of learning and change
Levels of support for learning and change
Managing your energy
Discovering your area of excellence
Identity level elicitation process
Exploring your vision, mission and ambition
The influence of holding environments

Multiple techniques for centering
The structure and skill of “creative flow” in work and self

Module 4 with Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan
Module 4 will cover issues related to growth and evolution at the identity level. We will explore methods and practices for enriching and sustaining generative change and integrating our wounds and “shadows”. Participants will learn strategies for mapping and understanding key areas of change in the lives of themselves and their clients. They will master tools that help people to successfully navigate times of crisis and transition. Some key topics will include:

Identification and our “idealized self”
Sponsoring our shadows
