The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness (EQ) , a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most.
The “Co” in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration. Thus, the “Co” in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures.
The “Active” in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the “Active” in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.
The magic happens in the dance between “Co” and “Active” — action that arises from presence, deep relationship and context…and presence that is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an “either/or” paradigm into a “yes/and” paradigm.
Through Co-Active coaching, we work with executives and their teams to create a sustainable and transformative change in the way people relate to and work with each other.
We begin by holding our clients as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers and rising up to the challenges and circumstances they face. Our role as a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen at a deep level and empower to elicit the skills and creativity an executive and leader already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. The Co-Active Coach comes from a place of authentic being, listening and encouragement, to uncover the best in oneself and others.
