Generative
Communication

is a revolutionary way of thinking about human communication—as a
co-creative process of renewing and
sustaining life.

I believe that human survival depends on our willingness and ability to practice generative communication.

Embrace Complexity

Embracing Complexity, and trying to understand life as it is happening, is the foundation
for a Generative Communication
mindset.

Dance with the rhythms of change to turn roadblocks and resistance into positive energy. Let go of illusions of an objective, fixed reality that we can control, and even predict. Endeavour to practice the art of letting go, again and again.

Stay
Awake

Be present in the
here and now.
Pay attention;
there are things
going on that you won’t want to miss.

Practice Active Awareness to gain insights that may not be immediately apparent. Become aware of your own gut-feelings and reactions. Explore visible and invisible information that leads to a deeper understanding.

Ask
Questions

Learn and Unlearn:
Learn with and from others. Unlearn when necessary. Examine assumptions, justifications, and accepted dogma.

Remember how to
Think Critically.
Look for evidence to support pronouncements. Question everything, investigate new ideas and draw conclusions from what you understand in the moment, knowing things may change.

Welcome the Struggle

Explore Differences
in ideologies, backgrounds, values and beliefs. Dissonance is a source of energy not to be ignored. Tapping into that energy can bring an expanded understanding and mutual shifts in stubborn thinking.

Recognize Lifeview Limitations
and acknowledge that each of us has a unique perspective. Resist being blinded by our own lifeview and welcome a more complete picture.

Take Responsibility

We are the only ones over whom we have complete control. Our intentions are revealed by what we
think, say, and do.
Hold onto Your Integrity when the going gets tough.

The words you choose matter so Watch your Language!  Be accountable for your part of creating and sustaining life. Manage Yourself to practice observing and modifying your habits of seeing, understanding, and behaving in your everyday interactions. Create spaces for others to do the same.
