How Does a Coach Work?

  • A coach focuses on the client, the client’s achievement of their smaller goals, and the fulfillment of the client’s ultimate desire to live a balanced, healthy, and happy life.
  • A skilled professional coach integrates powerful questions, active listening, reflected clarity, intuition, a co-created course of action, encouraging support, mutually designed accountability, acknowledgement, and a range of compelling and creative tools to help the client deepen understanding of themselves and take the actions needed to achieve true fulfillment.

What is a Co-Active Coaching Relationship?

  • A co-active coaching relationship is the collaboration between coach and client, focused on the client and the client’s agenda, to effectively and supportively facilitate the client’s achievement of specific goals, and the fulfillment of a desired, balanced life.
  • A co-active coaching relationship is the cornerstone to effective coaching and is designed by both the coach and the client in the beginning of their work together, and is re-designed by both coach and client whenever there is a desire or need to do so.
  • The co-active coach-client relationship is honest and open, and is secure in integrity and confidentiality.
  • The co-active coach-client relationship is a partnership.
  • The co-active relationship holds that all things are possible.
