More About Coaching


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.

Co-Active Coaching

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 client 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 CTI that have been proven as the gold standard over the past 25 years of the coaching profession.
