What is Generative Coaching?

Generative coaching is modeled by an approachable, empathetic, and professional individual who actively listens to and engages with our clients. As your thought partner, a relaxed setting is established where you are encouraged to engage in open and honest conversations. As a generative coach, I may use visual aids or materials to facilitate coaching sessions, such as writing on a whiteboard, using sticky notes for brainstorming, or referring to diagrams and charts.  The overall goal is to evoke feelings of trust, support, and empowerment, reflecting the role in helping clients unlock their potential and achieve personal and professional growth.

What People Are Saying About Dr. Dave

Initially I was unsure of what to expect or how I could even leverage his coaching, but I am grateful that we connected.  Our weekly touchpoints have become a safe space for me to share my thoughts and ideas.  I have comfort knowing that our discussions are rooted in mutual trust and respect.  He challenges me to think outside of the box and has helped me gain more confidence when presenting my ideas to Senior Leadership.   He listens attentively and asks clarifying questions to ensure he fully understands what I need.  What I love the most is that Dr. Dave uses questions and techniques to help guide me to answers to my challenges using my own thought process whereas most people would simply give their own perspective with little regard to your own input. -- Ayesha, AVP of IT Metrics and Transformation Management

I work as Vice President of Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse Solutions for GM Financial. My coaching relationship began with Dr. Dave Cornelius in September of 2021. Dr. Cornelius has an expert touch at acting as a Coach and assisting others through difficult processes and decisions instead of pointing his mentees in a specific direction. He encourages us to think through the problems and questions at hand and allows us to come up with our own decisions. He builds trust and safety into everything he does and has a way of making us feel like we are the smartest people he has worked with.  Christopher, VP Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse Solutions

I often bring to the coaching time with Dr Dave topics I don’t feel empowered enough to discuss with my management or the team. His wisdom always helps me find a way to tackle the issue in very respectful way. He does listen, truly hears what I say. His style is unique, he is very smart and uses humor to make the most challenging situations appear so simple. He strives to simplify everything which really is needed in this world of agile transformation and above.  Thanks to Dr Dave, I am doing well in my RTE role. 8 months ago, I walked into this role with zero (0) experience. Dr Dave reached out to me and ever since, I lean on him for situations where I need coaching, mentoring or just someone to listen. He is a library of knowledge, he provides me with material to inspire for what I am about to do, he helps me think of solutions instead of focusing on what is not working. He does all of that being genuine and a smile, indeed he is very clear on feedback, very concise in guiding me thorough my journey and his attitude is very positive and supportive. I look forward to our coaching sessions. – Celia, Transformation Program Manager
