Institute of Coaching

CTI is a proud sponsor of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School.


The Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, has helped CTI bring the art and practice of coaching together with the science that supports its efficacy.

“We’ve known intuitively, and watching results for twenty years, that the Co-Active Model is an effective approach to coaching,” says Karen Kimsey-House, CTI co-founder and CEO. “Now we can truly begin to link the theory and evidence bases that are congruent with the CTI model.”  To learn more about the connections between CTI’s four cornerstones and research, click the link below.

Established in 2009, the Institute of Coaching (IOC), with its centers for Leadership, Health and Wellness, Positive Psychology and Coaching, is dedicated to enhancing the integrity and credibility of the profession. The Institute of Coaching Professional Association (ICPA) provides a wealth of resources, educational and networking opportunities.
