Karen & Henry Kimsey-House

Karen & Henry Kimsey-House
For most of their adult lives, Karen and Henry Kimsey-House have been fascinated with people. Through their background and
 training in classical theater, their pioneering work in coaching, and their practical experience leading hundreds of leadership programs, they have inspired thousands of people to generate full self-expression, a deep sense of intercontentedness, and an ability to be responsible for their world.

Entering the theater at an early age, Karen and Henry honed their insights into human ontology through classical theatrical training and years of stage, television, and film experience. Henry was a New York actor for 12 years. Karen received her MFA from Temple University in 1983.

In 1992, Henry and Karen met and co-founded the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) along with their partner, Laura Whitworth. Today, CTI is a global coaching and leadership development organization offering programs in 18 different countries around the world. More than 50,000 students have taken a CTI program, and CTI is fortunate to have hundreds of loyal organizational clients in diverse industry sectors that span the globe.

    Co-Active Leadership: Five Ways to Lead

    Co-Active Leadership: Five Ways to Lead

    Top down, one-dimensional leadership models are hopelessly outmoded in today’s rapidly-changing world. And they waste the leadership ability that is present throughout an organization, not just at the top. In this visionary book, Karen and Henry Kimsey-House provide a model that harnesses the possibility of many rather than relying on the power of one.

    Co-Active Leadership is a deeply collaborative approach, but the first of its five dimensions focuses on the individual: leading from within. We must be fully present and live lives of integrity, openheartedness, and self-awareness if we are to make the kind of conscious, creative choices Co-Active Leadership demands. Each of the remaining four dimensions work together holistically. Depending on the situation, you may lead from the front, offering guidance and inspiration; from behind, supporting and encouraging others; from beside, partnering with and supporting other members of your team; or from the field, drawing on insights and wisdom available beyond the rational mind.

    Co-Active Leadership is the only model to celebrate and honor these different expressions of leadership. It invites all of us to share our expertise and allows collaborative solutions to emerge that would never have been possible otherwise.
