Editorial Reviews

Review

“With its third updated edition, Co-Active Coaching remains the bible of coaching guides. 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. Covey, best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

“Co-Active Coaching should be required reading for every manager or employee who wants to succeed in the workplace.” —Marshall Goldsmith, author of the New York Times best-sellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

“Co-Active Coaching exudes the catalytic power to transform your organization and your life. Read it, savor it and practice it to become a purpose-filled leader of life!” —Kevin Cashman, best-selling author, Leadership from the Inside Out and Awakening the Leader Within

“Transformational change – in ourselves, or in the teams, organizations, and companies we lead – is ultimately all about relationships. The third edition of Co-Active Coaching, by the eloquent and compassionate founders of The Coaches Training Institute, will give you the tools, the skills, the strategies and the ethical frameworks to achieve the powerful goals of this work: Changing lives and changing the world.” —Celeste Schenck, President, American University of Paris

“Co-Active Coaching insightfully reveals how to unlock a person’s potential and enlighten their past, present and future. It’s a must-read for all self-empowered senior executives.” —Michael Cheah, former President of Xian Janssen Pharmaceutical, China (A Johnson & Johnson Group of Companies)

“Coaching basics are an essential skill set for any manager or leader who is interested in developing other people, so I use Co-Active Coaching material in most of the MBA courses I teach. Without fail, it engages the hearts and minds of people who care about acquiring meaningful and effective skills they can immediately put to use.”— Heidi Brooks, Ph.D., Director of Yale School of Management Mentoring Program, Lecturer at Yale School of Management, Clinical Assistant Professor at Yale School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry

“I applaud the new edition of this definitive text on transformational coaching. The authors and the visionary network they lead provide an effective methodology to work with change at personal and organizational levels. This is a must-read for professionals who value the process of discovery, awareness, and choice that empowers people to find their own inner wisdom and to act in service to make a better world for all.”— Lynne Twist, Author, The Soul of Money, Founder, Soul of Money Institute, and Co-Founder, The Pachamama Alliance

“When designing our ICF ACTP coach certification program, we never considered any textbook other than Co-Active Coaching. This is the best, most comprehensive book for teaching the relevant skills of coaching. It should be required reading for all coach-specific training programs in any environment (profit, non-profit, executive, teams, etc.). With the enhancements made in the third edition, we look forward to incorporating this edition into our required reading list.”—Donna Billings, PCC and Co-founder, Professional Coach Certification Program, Duquesne University School of Leadership and Professional Advancement

This book has great information to be a life coach. It is an excellent resource for how to be in a partnership with your client by asking powerful questions, listening at a deeper level, understanding the significance of values, while using intuition as a guide. Highly recommend it.

Having purchased over $1200.00 in books this year I know that if you want to get into the field of coaching this is one of the best supported books on the market. It speaks in clear thoughts that can be used in everyday life, supported well by the books website makes the books value far more than the price paid.

This was a textbook for two courses. I learned more from this book than I did in Six-month coaching certification program. I reread it periodically to refresh my skills.

Great Approach at Coaching with good elaborations and examples. Co-Active approach is a great guide to Life Coaching and the various core disciplines of Fulfillment, Balance and Process. I believe however there was an opportunity to spend more time on Balance and Process the chapters are too short for such important topics. I would recommend this book for anyone looking to get a good approach at Life Coaching.

The first few chapters were a turnoff for myself and a few others who I asked to read some of it. Maybe alright for personal counseling and 'new agey' life coaching, but not for business-focused coaching, for managers and supervisors coaching skills development, and for executive and business coaches. Unfortunate because there are some useful frameworks and tools presented in places in later chapters but even they are mixed with over-soft platitudes.

Classic coaching textbook but would have preferred to have all the information in the book instead of having to go online.

This work is full of good ideas, analysis, principles, all this based on the large experience the authors have as coachs. I would like it to be better organized, for the plan of the book does not seem completely logic. Be that as it may, there is a lot of knowledge in it, and it is certainly worth reading and studying.

This book presents some useful strategies for life coaching. However, as a leader I was more interested in changing business relations and performance coaching. This book missed the mark. You would need more than just this book to be an effective life coach, and it will not help with other types of coaching, such as performance coaching or mentoring.
