When Co-Active Coaching was first released, this pioneering work set the stage for what has become a cultural and business phenomenon, and helped launch the professional practice of coaching. Already used as the definitive resource in dozens of corporate and professional development programs, the fully revised third edition of Co-Active Coaching has been updated to include the latest terminology and a variety of fresh coaching examples drawn from the authors' firsthand experiences with thousands of international coaching trainees and clients. In this edition, the authors extend the use of the Co-Active Model-which emphasized a partnership between client and coach-into leadership management, featuring its effectiveness throughout an organization. The Coach's ToolkitA", now web-based, has been expanded to include more than 35 exercises, questionnaires, checklists and reproducible forms.

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
