The Generalist Approach

Ways of being—readiness for the generalist way
Open stance (receptive to diverse perspectives and co-created knowledge)
Connection via key relationships
Ways of knowing—training for the generalist way
Broad knowledge (of self, others, systems, the natural world and their interconnectedness)
Grounding (in specific knowledge and experience)
Ways of perceiving—seeing the world in ways that foster integration
Scanning and prioritizing, then focusing on the highest priority
Focusing on the particulars while keeping the whole in view
Ways of thinking and doing—prioritized, joined-up action
Engaging with the most important parts in context
Doing multiple low-level tasks to enable higher-level integrative action over time
Iterating (between breadth/depth, subjective/objective, parts/whole, action/reflection)
