Building the leadership of others
Our Co-Active Coach Training Program builds the leadership of others by empowering voice. By coaching others to find and use their unique voice and gifts in the world, Co-Active coaches create the environment where heart-led, intimate relationships can be created with themselves and others. By seeing everyone as naturally resourceful, creative, and whole from the start, Co-Active coaches use the new language of leadership to evoke in others the realization of their fullest human potential.
Building the leadership of self
Our Co-Active Leadership Program builds the leadership of self by awakening and strengthening the full range of human expression. As a human, finding, understanding, and using your full range allows your most compelling self to show up in the world as a whole person 100% of the time. The new language of leadership taught in the program demonstrates through experiential learning how to create from self, from others, from nothing, and from everything. When you know how to enhance your own communication, you can use the new language of leadership to evoke in yourself the realization of your fullest human potential.
People are either creative or not, and “being creative” is about how many great ideas are brought to the table. This is driven by ego and creates competition.
Being in full expression of self is the most creative act and is required to be able to create from anyone and anything. Co-Active leaders recover from reactive states and create states in order to grow themselves and their world.
Top-down leadership, hierarchy, rules, and laws provide the rigidity needed to control and create order.
We use frameworks that create defined spaces for infinite possibility and expression.
It’s up to me to deliver better, newer things because I’m expected to deliver maximum impact in my world all the time. My impact is either good or bad.
I understand that I am always having an impact, and I can sense when it’s my turn to bring forward what is wanting to emerge.
I need to know the motivation of the people I’m in relationship with so I know how to react to and transact with them
The nature of my relationships is important to me because it is how I know myself and my world. As leaders, we are in relationship at all times to ourselves, others, and the world around us.
Titles and roles determine the level of control people have over others to manage outcomes and expectations.
Leaders are always growing their awareness of themselves and the world around them and able to respond to everything that is happening in any given moment.
Purpose means I have to find what I need to change in the world, and that becomes my job. It’s a destination I have to chase that doesn’t have anything to do with me.
Purpose lies within us as the most intimate essence of our being. Our purpose gives direction to the fullest expression of ourselves in every situation, providing meaning along life’s journey.
We become "response-able"
We are all able to become aware that we are all of this and more, and that we all have the ability to become responsible—or “response-able”—in order to be in deeper, more meaningful relationship to everything in our world. Leaders are responsible for their world, so everyone is a leader. And leaders lead from every place in their lives.
Leadership becomes accessible
Leadership isn’t a “thing” reserved for only certain people. Leadership is the conversation. It’s being vulnerable and forgiving yourself when something happens that you didn’t intend. It’s asking powerful questions that help others reach their own growth potential. It’s about being aware of when we’re triggered and staying in relationship anyway because we value relationships.
