    Book details


Used as the definitive resource in dozens of professional development programs, Co-Active Coaching teaches the transformative communication process that allows individuals from all levels of an organization - from students to teachers, and direct reports to managers - to build strong, collaborative relationships.

With the first edition, the authors of Co-Active Coaching earned their place at the forefront of the coaching profession. Now, this fully revised third edition of their classic work extends the use of their pioneering Co-Active model - which emphasizes a partnership between client and coach - into leadership management throughout an organization. This new edition has been updates to include fresh coaching examples, the latest in coaching terminology and an expanded, web-based 'Coach's Toolkit'.

With its third updated edition, Co-Active Coaching remains the bible of coaching guides. Written with a powerful, distinctive approach, no other book gives you the tools, the skills and the fundamentals needed to succeed in these delicate relationships. (Stephen R. Covey, best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)Co-Active Coaching should be required reading for every manager or employee who wants to succeed in the workplace. (Marshall Goldsmith, author of the New York Times best-sellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There)Co-Active Coaching exudes the catalytic power to transform your organization and your life. Read it, savor it and practice it to become a purpose-filled leader of life! (Kevin Cashman, best-selling author, Leadership from the Inside Out and Awakening the Leader Within)Transformational change in ourselves, or in the teams, organizations, and companies we lead is ultimately all about relationships. The third edition of Co-Active Coaching, by the eloquent and compassionate founders of The Coaches Training Institute, will give you the tools, the skills, the strategies and the ethical frameworks to achieve the powerful goals of this work: Changing lives and changing the world. (Celeste Schenck, President, American University of Paris)Co-Active Coaching insightfully reveals how to unlock a person s potential and enlighten their past, present and future. It's a must-read for all self-empowered senior executives. (Michael Cheah, former President of Xian Janssen Pharmaceutical, China (A Johnson & Johnson Group of Companies))Coaching basics are an essential skill set for any manager or leader who is interested in developing other people, so I use Co-Active Coaching material in most of the MBA courses I teach. Without fail, it engages the hearts and minds of people who care about acquiring meaningful and effective skills they can immediately put to use. (Heidi Brooks, Ph.D., Director of Yale School of Management Mentoring Program, Lecturer at Yale School of Management, Clinical Assistant Professor at Yale School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry)I applaud the new edition of this definitive text on transformational coaching. The authors and the visionary network they lead provide an effective methodology to work with change at personal and organizational levels. This is a must-read for professionals who value the process of discovery, awareness, and choice that empowers people to find their own inner wisdom and to act in service to make a better world for all. (Lynne Twist, Author, The Soul of Money, Founder, Soul of Money Institute, and Co-Founder, The Pachamama Alliance)When designing our ICF ACTP coach certification program, we never considered any textbook other than Co-Active Coaching. This is the best, most comprehensive book for teaching the relevant skills of coaching. It should be required reading for all coach-specific training programs in any environment (profit, non-profit, executive, teams, etc.). With the enhancements made in the third edition, we look forward to incorporating this edition into our required reading list. (Donna Billings, PCC and Co-founder, Professional Coach Certification Program, Duquesne University School of Leadership and Professional Advancement)

    If you are thinking about getting into Coaching/ Life Coaching this is a very good place to start. I am still reading it (Making lots of notes too). I did go to a two day coaching taster course and was going to enrol on a full 9 month coaching course but changed my mind at the last minute. I may go back and do the full course at some point but for now this book is, and will serve me well.

    I was after a decent book which will see me through the ILM Coaching and Mentoring qualification, unfortunately, this book isn't it! Doesn't cover anything that students need to know. May come in useful in time. I think maybe I was trusting the reviews too much.

    This book made me decide to take a formal coaching qualification in co-active coaching. It is written in a very accessible way and the model is a very person - centered approach to coaching. One of the underlying principles, "people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole" says it all for me. Also the best description of intuition I have seen.

    As a trainee coach who has been through the life changing journey as coachee/client I have been eternally grateful for the authors expertise. The co-active coaching model (I believe) is a strategy that should be used for the foundation of all coach training. I have found the toolkit fantastic as a basis of building my resources and I have used all information useful in my experiential coaching journey.Thank-you for sharing this book which will be my bible as I establish my niche as an independent coach, passionate in the vision that a world with the influence of coaching is a world naturally creative, resourceful and whole.Lindsey(Trainee Coach @ McStravick Institute of Coaching, N Ireland)

    If you're a coach, aspiring to be a coach or just plain curious this is a really helpful book.Coaching is a skill that is used in every walk of life. It comes in many different guises and has many different names...Co-active coaching emphasises the importance of "ownership" rather than magic - although it can seem like magic when applied...This is a journey of discovery, awareness and choice...I have been really successful in my work as a person who uses coaching, psychotherapeutic models, nutrition, exercise and anything else I feel will be helpful because of my truthfulness..."The truth according to Mark" may not be what you want to hear - but it will be helpful and that's what shines throughout this book.An added bonus is the CD and website and downloads and all the multi-media that accompanies a book such as this.I reckon this is a cross between a "course text book" and a reference book that you can use for life - although you will probably have to buy the latest up to date edition.Sometimes it's good to buy a previous edition just to see how the model is evolving.Anyway, very helpful book and like I always mention - this stuff needs to be applied to your own life if you really want to gain the maximum benefit from becoming a successful coach...Buy it and learn some interesting stuff...

    Alongside 'Coaching for Performance' by John Whitmore and 'Effective Coaching' by Myles Downey, I recommend this book to newcomers to coaching as one of the original classics. It has a life coaching rather than business coaching bias but I still think there is much in it that is valuable to coaches of any flavour. I particularly like the chapter on listening and the model of listening that is introduced with its three levels. This model helps readers understand the difference between internal listening, active listening and global listening - a very powerful concept in coaching. The emphasis on intuition is also welcome in that it balances the many texts that seem to present coaching as a science rather than an art. A whole chapter on curiosity is also unique in my experience - for me it works to focus on curiosity rather than the associated coaching principles of being non-directive or non-judgemental since it is a positive quality; something we can learn do to better rather than something we are being told we should not do. Overall, it is the writing style of the book that lifts it above the rest of the pack - a warm, expert guidance with some lovely anecdotes and stories scattered in to keep the reader engaged and on their toes.A must read.

    Wonderful book. Apparently the most recent edition has CDs with audio examples.I especially liked the material on process coaching - the more formulaic stuff leaves me a little cold.But this is a great introduction.
