What is Co-active Coaching?
The Co-Active® Model balances self-awareness, a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most.
The “Co” in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration. Thus, the “Co” in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures.
The “Active” in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the “Active” in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.
"We never know how high we are, Till we are called to rise; And then, if we are true to plan, Our statures touch the skies."
– Emily Dickinson
Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active® Model, it begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. Co-Active coaching uses an array of proprietary tools developed by The Coaches Training Institute that have been proven as the gold standard over the past 20 years of the coaching profession.
