5.0 out of 5 stars Whole-person coaching...a powerful approach.
Co-coaching is distinctive in that it involves both the coach and the client; it is also referred to as personal/professional coaching because it addresses the whole person (the whole of their life).

3.0 out of 5 stars A fairly interesting taster for aspiring coaches
This was the first book I read on the road to becoming a full time coach. It didn't help me take on my first client, but it wet my appetite for coaching and has some excellent tools that I use on a daily basis. It is a reader teaser, it flirted with this eager aspiring coach without ever quite satisfying him. A salad when I wanted a steak. Realistically, I think it is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Whole-person coaching...a powerful approach., 28 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Co-active Coaching: New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in Work and Life (Hardcover)
Co-coaching is distinctive in that it involves both the coach and the client; it is also referred to as personal/professional coaching because it addresses the whole person (the whole of their life).
Many books we have reviewed on this subject, while of value within the workplace, do not strive to address the multidimensional nature of the individual. In contrast, the approach presented here is distinctly holistic.
The authors' offer a model plus a set of skills and techniques. The book is filled with specifics and excellent insights, and gives extensive guidance about how to be highly effective in coaching. About 75 pages are devoted to "The Coach's Toolkit," consisting of forms, checklists, exercises, resources and a glossary. This book offers a potentially powerful approach to coaching. It is, in our view, requisite reading for anyone involved in, or considering, coaching. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great model for coaching, 20 Aug 2003
This review is from: Co-active Coaching: New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in Work and Life (Hardcover)
For ANYONE looking to understand the power of coaching and how it works, this is THE book to own. Co-active coaching provides a beautiful model that's broad enough to use with all of your coaching clients and deep enough to enable truly powerful coaching. The book is based on the cirriculum of The Coaches Training Institute coach training program, and even though I earned my CPCC (certified professional co-active coach)certification several years ago, I continue to dog-ear, underline, and highlight this book every time I take it from my bookcase. It gets better with each new read!

3.0 out of 5 stars A fairly interesting taster for aspiring coaches, 22 Feb 2002
This review is from: Co-active Coaching: New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in Work and Life (Hardcover)
This was the first book I read on the road to becoming a full time coach. It didn't help me take on my first client, but it wet my appetite for coaching and has some excellent tools that I use on a daily basis. It is a reader teaser, it flirted with this eager aspiring coach without ever quite satisfying him. A salad when I wanted a steak. Realistically, I think it is a text book for a course. Worth buying for the tools and an overview of the methods of another of the big US coaching colleges if you are looking for an accreditation course.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource!, 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Co-active Coaching: New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in Work and Life (Hardcover)
As a professor of Organizational Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology, I've seen a lot of interest expressed by psychologists in the process of personal and executive coaching. Conventional training in psychology is not necessarily a very good preparation for this work. Rather, what is needed is the sort of empathetic and careful relationship building, informed by but not restricted to psychological approaches, that comes through in this book. I heartily recommend it to all who are interested in developing a greater sensitivity to the coaching process!

5.0 out of 5 stars Co-Active Coaching is the wave of the future, 21 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Co-active Coaching: New Skills for Coaching People Toward Success in Work and Life (Hardcover)
What an inspiring concept: To be held as a powerful individual that is supported to be and do what was once only dreamed possible. That is part of what is focused throughout this book introducing the alliance of the coach and the client in an action and learning process. This book offers a springboard to discover how coaching challenge clients as they take steps toward their lifetime goals, and how the answers to all the questions are known by the clients and are revealed through the coach's curious questions. This book is a must read for anyone who desires to make this world a more loving and accepting place. After reading it, I think everyone should have a coach!
