What is Co-Active Coaching?

TestimonialsCo-Active Coaching is a powerful designed alliance created to deepen your learning and forward your action! This model of coaching is about the client’s unique fulfillment and balance, both which lead to living a satisfying and successful life. In the Co-Active Coaching model, the client and coach work in powerful partnership to meet the needs of the client.

The Four Cornerstones of Co-Active Coaching

  1. The client is naturally creative, resourceful, and whole. There is nothing wrong, broken, or needs fixing with the client. The coach does not have the answers rather the coach has the questions that create opportunities for your self-discovery. You can find your own answers.

  2. Co-Active coaching addresses the client’s whole life. Central to the Co-Active Coaching model is a client’s Fulfillment, Balance, and Process.

  3. The agenda comes from the client. The client is in charge and the relationship is focused on the client getting the results they want. The coach ensures the client is always steering toward fulfillment and balance, and is able to engage in the process of their life. The coach “holds” your agenda and makes sure it does not get forgotten.

  4. The Coach dances in the moment with the client. Your coach will coach what shows up and not from a rigid plan. There is a fluid give and take in the lead between the client and coach. Everything that is happening is an opportunity for learning and movement.

The job of the Co-Active Coach is to ask powerful questions that help the client create perspective and meaning around their chosen coaching topic. The process is not about the coach’s expertise or opinions; the client has the answers. Co-Active Coaching includes goal setting, mission and values clarification, skill building, support, brainstorming, and will be a lot of fun!
