About CTI's Founders

Henry Kimsey-House, CPCC
Co-Founder & Director

One of the first professional coaches in the 1980s, Kimsey-House is the Co-founder and lead designer of the thought-provoking, experiential learning programs of CTI and the co-author of Co-Active Coaching, the best-selling industry bible, which is in its third edition. An actor since age nine, Kimsey-House honed his insights into human emotion and the narrative process through classical theatrical training and years of stage, television and film experience. With deep conviction that education should be driven by immersive, contextually based learning and not dry information dumps, Kimsey-House is committed to creating richly engaging and transformative learning environments where retention approaches 80% rather than the traditional 20%.
