When Co-Active Coaching was first released in 1998, this pioneering work set the stage for what has become a cultural and business phenomenon and helped launch the profession of coaching. Published in more than 10 languages now, this book has been used as the definitive resource in dozens of corporate, professional-development, and university-based coaching programs, as well as by thousands of individuals looking to elevate their communication, relationship, and coaching skills.
This fully revised third edition of Co-Active Coaching has been updated to reflect the expanded vision of the newly updated Co-Active Model and coaching course curriculum at The Coaches Training Institute, the training organization founded and run by the authors for 20 years. The third edition emphasizes evoking transformational change in the client and extends the use of the Co-Active Model into leadership management and its effectiveness throughout organizations.

"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)
"Really extraordinary material."
By far some of the best material I've ever listend too on coaching or counseling. listened to countless launchers from experts from all over the world and the way this is put together and organized is truly great I highly recommend it.
I did not enjoy this narrator. His voice made the material very textbook-y. however, the content was outstanding.
"Good book some hesitation"
The book was good but all of the examples for coaching conversations only apply to clients who use metaphorical conversations. This style of coaching wouldn't necessarily apply to someone with a highly logical or Perceiver type personality.
"I loved this book. One of the BEST."
One of the BEST Coaching books on the market. I will be spending time learning this coaching approach.
This book provides additional insights into variations of Coaching Techniques. Well done and thank you.
"Great framework for coaching"
I am a nutrition coach and trainer and found this so helpful. From the big picture of framework down to sample client conversations, so helpful!
Great overview if you are thinking of becoming a coach. Even if you are not planning to become a coach this book will improve your life with new skills and approaches.
a great program with original and formative ideas for maximizing the impact of coaching in the world.
I really enjoyed this book and it's supplemental materials! It's a great tutorial for beginner coaches as well as a solid tool for seasoned coaches.
"probably one of the best coaching books out there"
it's a little dry at parts but how exciting can you make being a coach. Definitely has some great content. highly recommended for anyone who's entering the coaching business.
