In our performance-rewarding environment, itâs easy to lose sight of the value of real connection, intimacy, self-awareness, listening deeply to and nurturing others â the very qualities that inform and inspire what we do, restore us and give our lives fulfilling meaning.
Times are changing as the world becomes more and more complex and yet smaller. The need for us to work together to lead effectively is urgent. Relationship intelligence is suddenly paramount to success. We at CTI consider this good news. For the past 20 years, weâve trained tens of thousands to balance the âbeingâ and the âdoingâ and have seen firsthand how our Co-Active Model catapults individuals and organizations into both higher achievement and deeper connection and fulfillment. Transformational change is our business. We want a world that works for everyone where people know that who we are is as important as what we do.
The Co-Active Model
The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness, 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 âCoâ in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration. Thus, the âCoâ in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures.
The âActiveâ in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the âActiveâ in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.
The magic happens in the dance between âCoâ and âActiveâ â action that arises from presence, deep relationship and contextâŚand presence that is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an âeither/orâ paradigm into a âyes/andâ paradigm.
Through Co-Active training, CTI is creating a transformative change in the way people relate to and work with each other. The work inspires people to feel engaged in and passionate about their life and work, see the good, get curious, create interactions unlike any other, become visionary, feel more alive, connect deeply to others, give real meaning to their lives, think much bigger, become great leaders and make a difference.
The Co-Active Model has spawned a philosophy, a methodology, a skill set and a communication form that is being applied in business, education, medicine, government, communities and families all around the world.
Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active Model, it begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active CoachÂŽ is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. Co-Active coaching uses an array of proprietary tools developed by CTI that have been proven as the gold standard over the past 20 years of the coaching profession.
