What is co-active coaching?

I’m trained as co-active coach by the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) with headquarter in the San Francisco Bay area. CTI is according to their website  “the largest in-person coach training school in the world… Co-Active Coaching is a unique, proactive alliance in which coach and client work together as equals to meet the needs of the client. Fervent curiosity is more important for the coach than specialized knowledge. Skills and techniques are important; authenticity and connection are more important.
CTI holds that all people are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, and capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of the Co-Active Coach is to ask questions, listen, and empower rather than instruct and advise. We also believe that all parts of people’s lives – their careers, relationships, recreation, personal growth, and finances for example – are interrelated and may be addressed on the way to the client’s goal. We coach the whole person to extraordinary results.
