About Co-Active Leadership: Five Ways to Lead by Karen and Henry Kimsey-House

Karen and Henry Kimsey-House, authors of Co-Active Coaching: Changing Business, Transforming Lives, bring their co-active model to leadership development. Their five-dimensional approach recognizes that leadership needs to be fluid and flexible, and that current top-down, one-dimensional models are outdated.

The Kimsey-House duo coined the term “co-active” to describe three elements interacting together: According to the book, “co” represents the relational and receptive aspects of leadership; “active” represents the action-oriented aspects; and the hyphen shows the connection between those aspects.

Why Cydcor Recommends This Book

In just 128 pages, Co-Active Leadership packs a lot of great content into an easy-to-read format. The authors list five leadership dimensions, describing each one and how it relates to the co-active model. They also give tips on how aspiring leaders can best use the various leadership styles to accomplish their goals.

This book not only guides readers into becoming transformational leaders from the inside out, it helps them to understand how the co-active model of leadership is a perfect fit for today’s collaboration-oriented and egalitarian work environment.

Our Favorite Part

Co-Active Leadership’s primary premise is that anyone can be a leader. Cydcor also believes that everyone has the capacity to lead. This book encourages readers to think about their actions throughout the day and recognize that almost all of them are manifestations of one of the five dimensions of leadership—the Leader Within, the Leader Behind, the Leader in Front, the Leader Beside, and the Leader in the Field.

Each of the dimensions is defined and illustrated in its own chapter so readers can gain a full understanding of their preferred leadership style and what they can do to grow in their own capacity for multi-dimensional leadership.
