Discover what's new in this classic work that helped define the field of coaching.
With the first edition of Co-Active Coaching, Laura Whitworth and her pioneering co-authors set the stage for what has become a cultural and business phenomenon, and helped launch the professional practice of coaching. Their flexible Co-Active Coaching model has stood the test of time as a transformative communication process that co-workers and teammates, managers, teachers, and students can use to build strong and collaborative relationships.
In this new edition, the authors reflect today's reality of how coaching has moved beyond its initial focus on life skills to become an integral part of an organization's toolkit for developing leaders. Already used as the definitive resource in dozens of corporate and professional development programs, 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. The power-packed Coach's Toolkit has been expanded to include more than 35 exercises, questionnaires, checklists, and reproducible forms. And a CD containing sample audio coaching sessions, and printable forms from the Toolkit, have been added to make these proven principles and techniques practical.

Ten years ago, coaches were essentially consultants who prescribed specific behaviors for clients struggling in the workplace. These days, coaches have much more experience and expertise the best of them relate to their clients ¿co-actively,¿ as partners rather than as authority figures. In fact, Laura Whitworth, Karen Kimsey-House, Henry Kimsey-House and Phillip Sandahl contend that such coaching can facilitate fundamental changes in many aspects of a client¿s life, not just at work, and they outline the skills coaches need to accomplish this. The book includes a CD that explains the basic principles of their philosophy, and an appendix with forms and exercises for coaches and clients. getAbstract recommends it to managers and human resource professionals who want to brush up the softer side of their coaching skills.
