Said Another Way

I have always been confused by the concept of Generative Thinking as discussed in the book, Governance as Leadership.  I understood the approach to be an opportunity for an organization to discuss issues that do not find themselves on the board agenda but are significant to the cause.  The philosophy provides a chance for the board to stand back and consider things differently.  I gained an insight during the BoardSource Leadership Forum.  Generative Thinking is a perspective of making sense of the organization’s current place.  Consider asking, “what sense can we make of our current location?”
