The Science of Coaching

Harvard Medical School maps science to Co-Active coaching
The Science of Coaching

“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.”

Dr. Carol Kauffman
Founder and director of the Institute of Coaching and faculty of Harvard Medical School for over 25 years
