The Core Principles of Co-Active® Coaching
Fulfillment = My Values Balance = My Choices Process = My Awareness
Co-Active ® Coaching is built on the following three core principles.
1) Fulfillment: Living a fulfilling life means that you are acting in accordance with your values. Your values reflect, at the deepest level, who you are as a person. Often, we will work with you to develop a life purpose statement. What is it that fills you up? What gets your juices flowing? What actions are you taking when you feel you are living a deeply meaningful life?
2) Balance: Living a life in balance means prioritizing action that reflects your values. The coaching relationship reveals possibilities for action you may not be recognizing. More choice in life allows you to live a more balanced life; you get unstuck and are able to live a life connected to, rather than in conflict with, your values.
3) Process: Living a life in process means bringing awareness to how you are feeling at this very moment. We may notice a sudden change in your voice, a sense of excitement in your eyes, or a worry cross your brow. We’ll work with you to get in touch with these “what’s here right now” feelings and sensations. Spending time “just below the surface” adds a richness to the coaching relationship that can release powerful new self-insights invaluable in deepening self-awareness and moving your life forward.
Using the principles of Fulfillment, Balance, and Process can bring transformational change to your life. Click here for to request your free Co-Active ® coaching session to find out more.
Coaching results in fundamental shifts in how you think about, feel about, and take action in your life. These shifts empower you to get from where you are to where you want to be. As Co-Active ® Coaches, our relationship with you is based on three core principles that connect your specific “issue(s) of the day” with larger issues that ultimately determine the quality of your life.
For example, one of your staff is not meeting deadlines. Coaching can help you discover new strategies to improve deadline compliance. A new hire may be causing conflict with his colleagues. What now? Connecting to core principles works to bring the Big Picture into play. In this example, you may have a limiting belief e.g. “others don’t take me seriously” that makes it difficult for you to hold your staff accountable regardless of the specific issue.
Releasing the hold that this limiting belief has on your ability to manage others, and for that matter to be in any relationship with others, results in a fundamental shift. This kind of shift provides new energy and an empowering perspective that can be applied to a variety of life’s opportunities and challenges.
