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.

From the Back Cover:

The Book That Helped Define the Field of Professional Coaching

Once considered a niche consulting specialty--or thought to apply only to sports teams--today coaching is one of the fastest-growing professions in the world. It is also a key component of an organization's toolkit for developing leaders, working with teams, and helping employees at every level achieve their personal and professional best. You too can now discover the techniques and tools for becoming a successful coach!

"Whether you're training coaches in your organization, instituting a mentoring program, or evaluating a coach for your own use, the authors' model will come in handy." T&D

"The authors, all professional coaches, believe that the client and the coach should be active collaborators and the agenda should be generated by the client. The strength of their conviction is apparent throughout the book and helps to convey a solid and consistent philosophy." Peer Resources

"Techniques for achieving one's goals from pioneers in the booming field of career coaching." New Age

"The Co-Active Coaching model can (and does) provide interesting tools and tips to assist with coaching in a professional capacity." Personnel Psychology
