It increases creativity and results in new ways of viewing old methods. The generative learning style is especially helpful in adjusting to change - in organizational structure, professional roles, market forces, technology and society at large.
The science of continuous learning. It is:
Self-directed: You determine the learning focus.
Experiential: Your source of learning is your experience.
Internally motivated: Your motivation and needs are the driving force.
Immediately relevant and solution focused.
Focuses on problem solving and critical thinking by engaging clients in direct experiences with real world issues. The cornerstones of experiential learning are doing, reflecting, and applying.
Clients gain knowledge by being personally involved in the process. The coach, in turn, facilitates rather than directs progress.
Carefully chosen experiences fit into a learning cycle of doing, reflecting, and applying.
Structured experiences require client to take initiative, make decisions, and be accountable for results.
Client is actively engaged in posing questions, experimenting, being creative, solving problems, assuming responsibility, and constructing meaning.
Coach and client experience together success, failure, risk-taking and uncertainty.
