How Coaches Evoke Change

Posted by Karen Kimsey-House on Jul 31, 2018 7:00:32 AM

With the current political climate in the United States, I’ve been thinking about transformative change (change that occurs at the level of identity or being) and how it is a process with several stages or phases. Among the many others who have created a map for a transformative journey, Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey is one that is well-known.

Creating a Coaching Culture

Posted by Karen Kimsey-House on Jul 17, 2018 7:00:37 AM

Somehow, organizations have gotten the incorrect notion that generating a coaching culture necessitates scheduling large numbers of in-depth, one-on-one coaching conversations of some length. This results in an understandable response: “We don’t have time for that!”

Learning the Power of Silence

Posted by Joshua Ramey-Renk on Jul 12, 2017 7:00:28 AM

Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to reflect on and grow my comfort level with a skill that is much, much harder to manifest than it should be, at least for me. The importance of not talking, of deliberately letting quiet hold sway, manifested in my life in unexpected ways that ultimately have helped me become a better coach. It took a couple of experiences, of life lessons, to bring home exactly how important it can be.

Looking Back at How Far We've Come

Posted by Janet Keller, CPCC, PCC on Jun 1, 2017 7:00:40 AM

In 1992, I hired Henry (not-yet-Kimsey) House as my coach. At that point, CTI had just been birthed, a twinkle of an idea the founders were busy dreaming into existence. And like so many of us, my life was changed forever when I got a taste of (not-yet-Co-Active) coaching.

I Hear Voices and Admit It... So Do You!

Posted by Nina Segura on Apr 26, 2017 7:00:39 AM
When I was about seventeen, my friend Donna and I decided to travel to the cornerstone musical festival in Chicago.  I was complaining about something or other, like any happy teenager often does (sarcasm).  Donna listened quietly, and as she gently rolled down her window, said, “Nina, you just need to be a whole person.” I was like “What? What the What??” A bunch of questions ran through my mind. For instance, “What does that even mean? Which part of me is she talking about?” Ever since I was little, I knew that I had many sides of myself, yet I had no idea what she was talking about.  This conversation stayed with me for years as I studied personal and professional development.

Taking It Outside

Posted by Zoe Greenwood on Apr 19, 2017 7:00:06 AM

January isn’t the ideal time for resolutions. After all, it’s dark and cold (in the U.K. at least) and really I just want to snuggle down in an armchair with a hot chocolate and forget about my expired gym membership.

At CTI, the definition of a Co-Active leader is: “One* who is responsible for their world.”

Failure of Institutional Leadership Inspires New Wave of Individual Leadership

Posted by John Vercelli on Jan 19, 2017 8:00:21 AM

Sadly, many of our institutions are failing to deliver on their promise. Government, education, and health care typically receive low satisfaction ratings. In fact, over the past 25 years, the percentage of Americans with a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the presidency has dropped from 72% to 36%, while the percentage of those with a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress has dropped from 30% to under 10%, according to Gallup polls.*

What Is your Theme for 2017?

Posted by Karen Kimsey-House on Jan 4, 2017 8:00:51 AM

What is it about the New Year that fills us with hope and possibility? In reality, the start of a new calendar year is an arbitrary line in the sand that allows us to mark the passage of time in an organized way.

The Art of Appreciation

Posted by Zoe Greenwood on Dec 28, 2016 8:00:46 AM

I’ve recently been experimenting with appreciative inquiry at work and have been struck by how complimentary it is with co-active coaching and my ongoing search for a form of leadership that can champion a more sustainable world.
