Why a Co-Active® Coach?

Image - Linda Bolle Steeped in the scientist-practitioner model, I am a firm believer in evidence-based practice (EBP), wherein evidence-based research informs professional practices that take an individual’s unique values and preferences into account.

And as I became interested in Coaching as a profession, it was imperative that my coaching practice be evidence-based as well.

So, when I learned that the Co-Active® Coach Training Program offered by the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) was informed by evidence-based research, I knew that I had found the training program for me.

While Ann Betz has conducted extensive research on the intersection between neuroscience and coaching—see, for example, her white paper, entitled Co-Active Coaching and the Brain: Neuroscience Research Supports the Efficacy of the Co-Active Model (Betz, 2012)—additional evidence supporting the efficacy of the Co-Active® Model abounds.

Anecdotally speaking, the CTI training in which I subsequently participated—all of which was based on the Co-Active® Model—exceeded my expectations. While the content of the training made practical sense, the training’s experiential component was literally life altering.

While the term Co-Active® implies that there is work to be done within the coaching relationship, sometimes that work involves integrating "doing" and "being;" this might entail being the person you want to be as you are doing what you want to do, or building more "being time" into your busy life.
