Developing a generative mindset involves a shift in being. We expand our awareness and open up possibilities for creating new contexts. We transform our relationship to language from being describers of some objective-knowable world to being designers of reality. Beyond new content and style, we realize the power of perception to alter contexts.
In my last blog post, I examined this mindset, the source of generativity with a set of principles, and the language of action.
This blog begins with language – specifically, speech acts. I then offer a model for generative communication to cultivate generative conversations.
