More than a book, the 3rd edition of the Co-Active Coaching paperback is a tool to address any issue, applied in diverse contexts, to a vast group of individuals who are seeking a driven and fulfilling life. Written by Henry Kimsey-House, Karen Kimsey-House, Phillip Sandahl and Laura Whitworth, and published by Nicholas Brealey (UK, 2011), this practical guide offered in an easy and organized reading, leads us through the structure of the process of co-active coaching and the application of different techniques to get the most out of the coaching journey.
The expansion and natural movement of the professional coaching field invited the authors, in this 3rd edition, to tide and define concisely and in simple language the broader use of coaching in the world today. Compared to the preceding edition, the book invites the reader to see coaching at work, not just within professional contexts but also as a day to day tool to be used by individuals, groups or companies, followed or not by a coach.
