What’s in it for me? Discover what the co-active coaching model is and how it can improve coaching.
Professional coaching is a great way to boost your career, find new purpose in life or gain new perspectives on difficulties you may be facing. Unfortunately, however, most coaches don’t realize that coaching can be greatly beneficial to both the person being coached and the person doing the coaching. And this is where the co-active coaching model comes in. Co-active coaching is more about discovery and development than about solving problems. It’s about finding things out together.
So how does it work?
As these blinks will show you, this model is based on a number of different skills, all of which combine to create the kind of conversation that will help the client grow. Foremost among these skills is listening. Of equal importance is curiosity. But there are more. Read on and learn what they are.
In these blinks, you’ll also learn
- why an environment of trust is essential in good coaching;
- that the skill of listening is underrated; and
- why dumb questions are sometimes the best ones.
