What Is Co-Active?

The Co-Active® Model is a framework for supporting discovery, awareness, and choice. It was developed by the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI). As writer Amy Logan puts it, “CTI's school and Co-Active model of coaching are considered the gold standard in the industry.”


"Co" refers to the connection between coach and client, or in any relationship. It evokes qualities such as collaboration, vulnerability, and love, space and essence. It is deeply connected to being.

"Active" refers to the realm of doing. It is about the choices we make, the efforts we invest in. It evokes creativity, power, action, focus, and making things real.

The model is based on these cornerstones:

  • People are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole

  • Dance in this moment

  • Focus on the whole person

  • Evoke transformation

Here's an introductory video about the model from CTI.
