With a focus on experiential participation, you have numerous opportunities to coach and receive feedback on your newly acquired skills. This course can be taken stand-alone and is recommended for anyone seeking practical systems for managing relationships with others, even if your goal is not to become a professional coach.

Science Supporting the Co-Active Model

“CTI offers a gold standard of coach training, and the Co-Active model behind it is remarkably congruent with a vast body of research in positive psychology and coaching. As business, health and personal coaches begin to master and articulate these messages, we believe it will create inroads for more individuals and organizations to see the value and validity of coaching. It’s exciting to see how the entire field can be uplifted by connecting science and theory with the spirit and practice of coaching. In the future, results will continue to show how science can be mapped to CTI’s Co-Active model and their four cornerstones of coaching.”
