Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

excellent content

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.

Excellent, absolutely excellent.

What did you like most about Co-Active Coaching, 3rd Edition?

I had learnt the concept of coaching on a management training course at work so got the book to follow on from my very basic understanding. It was brilliant and I am now looking for a course to build on it further.
Easy to listen to and not at all monotone. Great examples played out throughout the book, tips and tricks to be aware of. The online tools that you get access to are worth buying the 1 credit alone. I might even listen again. Highly recommend.

Lots of useful tips

Any additional comments?

This book offered a real 'hands on' approach to coaching conversations with its scenarios played out using different angles.
