Frequently asked ques­tions

Who is coach­ing for?

Coaching is for any­one. If you have a vi­sion for an im­prove­ment you want to make, and the mo­ti­va­tion to do some­thing about it, coach­ing is for you.

The Co-Active coach­ing phi­los­o­phy holds that peo­ple are ca­pa­ble of tremen­dous cre­ativ­ity, courage, and re­source­ful­ness, and are ca­pa­ble of find­ing their own an­swers to what­ever chal­lenges they face. So while you may have be­come dis­con­nected from them, in­side you have all the skills nec­es­sary to build the life you want.

How long does coach­ing take to work?

Coaching can work quickly, or slowly, or both.

Many peo­ple start cre­at­ing new aware­ness and ini­tial change in a short pe­riod of time, and it’s not un­com­mon to have light bulb mo­ments. Coaching where some­thing shifts for the client can hap­pen in­side a 10 minute con­ver­sa­tion. However, coach­ing is best per­ceived as a process. To deeply un­der­stand, re­fine and sus­tain these changes and truly in­cor­po­rate them into your life takes longer, on the or­der of months.

In ad­di­tion, while it’s com­mon to see ef­fects of coach­ing dur­ing a ses­sion, it’s also be­tween ses­sions where a lot of change hap­pens, as your mind, body, and spirit work to in­cor­po­rate new per­spec­tives and en­ergy.

What’s the dif­fer­ence be­tween a coach and a men­tor?

Although coach and men­tor are of­ten used in­ter­change­ably, and they may share a con­ver­sa­tional or fa­cil­i­ta­tive ap­proach, they’re dif­fer­ent in how they re­late to you.

A men­tor di­rectly ad­vises. They bring sub­stan­tial sub­ject mat­ter ex­pe­ri­ence to the con­ver­sa­tion, shar­ing hard-won ex­per­tise, wis­dom, and per­sonal opin­ions. Mentors typ­i­cally act as though they have the an­swer, and it’s their job to pass it on to you.

A coach­ing re­la­tion­ship is more un­bi­ased and ob­jec­tive. The coach does­n’t need to pos­sess any sub­ject mat­ter ex­per­tise, and in­stead pro­ceeds pri­mar­ily by lis­ten­ing, and by ask­ing pow­er­ful ques­tions to help you de­velop new aware­ness and in­sights. Coaches act as though you have the an­swer, and it’s their job to help you con­nect to it.

What’s the dif­fer­ence be­tween coach­ing and ther­apy?

While both are aimed at help­ing peo­ple make pos­i­tive changes in their life, and there can be some over­lap in style and ap­proach, there are also im­por­tant dif­fer­ences to con­sider.

Therapists are li­cenced med­ical pro­fes­sion­als and as such of­ten work with peo­ple with sub­stan­tial men­tal health is­sues, sub­stance abuse prob­lems, se­vere trauma, or an­other clin­i­cal con­di­tion. Therapists typ­i­cally work with just the is­sue be­fore them, fo­cus on the past to un­cover un­der­ly­ing causes for cur­rent be­hav­iour, and seek to ren­der a di­ag­no­sis.

Coaches work with peo­ple who are largely func­tion­ing well but feel they’re not reach­ing their true po­ten­tial. Coaching is not di­ag­nos­tic in na­ture and does not con­sider clients as de­fi­cient in any way. Instead, coach­ing helps clients iden­tify their own goals and un­cover ob­sta­cles or lim­it­ing be­liefs which may be block­ing them. Coaches work with the whole per­son, fo­cus on the pre­sent and fu­ture rather than the past, and is ac­tion-based, plac­ing em­pha­sis on ac­count­abil­ity and progress to­wards the clien­t’s goals.

What is Co-Active coach­ing?

Co-Active is a phi­los­o­phy and model for hu­man de­vel­op­ment pi­o­neered by the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), the largest in-per­son coach and lead­er­ship train­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion in the world. CTIs founders were among the ini­tial pi­o­neers in the coach­ing pro­fes­sion, their text­book is con­sid­ered the de­fin­i­tive text on coach train­ing pro­grams world­wide, and CTI was the first or­ga­ni­za­tion ac­cred­ited by the ICF.

Based on sci­en­tific prin­ci­ples, the CTI model fo­cuses on both be­ing and do­ing, and fun­da­men­tally be­lieves in the power of peo­ple to rad­i­cally trans­form their own lives. Learn more at the CTI web­site.
