‘Co-Active Coaching Changing Business, Transforming Lives’ by Henry Kimsey-House, Karen Kimsey-House, Phillip Sandahi, Laura Whitworth
Heather’s Recommended Audience:
Everyone who consults, advises manages and/or mentors others to accomplish goals.
This was a fabulous book for anyone that works with consultants externally or internally. The ideas presented are the Co-Active Coaching model which is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. It begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise.
The book provides great examples. It focuses more on life coaching but the concepts are easily applicable to Business Analytics Consulting internally and externally.
