Product Details


Co-Active Leadership forces you to re-evaluate what’s important at work and at home and provides an invaluable tool for those with a strong desire to lead at any level—in every life situation.”
—Chip Conley, New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Equations, founder of Joie de Vivre Hotels and Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy, Airbnb

“Karen and Henry Kimsey-House give us the framework and tools we all need to co-create a better world together! They get it right again: our ever-complex world needs new multidimensional ways to be even more responsive and purposeful as we create life-enriching futures. Get this book and use it!”
—Kevin Cashman. bestselling author of Leadership from the Inside Out and The Pause Principle and Senior Partner, CEO and Executive Development, Korn Ferry

“Leadership books invariably come with the hidden promise that you’ll get other people to do what you want them to do so that you can rise above the pack. Here is a leadership book that comes from a deeper place! It starts with Karen and Henry’s groundbreaking definition of leadership: leaders are those who ‘take responsibility for their world.’ Now that is a great place to start!”
—Frederic Laloux, author of Reinventing Organizations

“You should get this book, read it, and do what it says. Karen and Henry wrote the book on coaching, and this current work extends their thinking and research into leadership. Great leaders are almost always great coaches, so this is a chance to learn from the masters.”
—Dave Logan, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Tribal Leadership and The Three Laws of Performance and faculty member, USC Marshall School of Business

“Karen Kimsey-House and Henry Kimsey-House are rooted in a new and profound understanding of creativity in the universe. In brain science, cellular biology, ecosystem dynamics, and evolutionary cosmology, scientists are replacing the model of top-down control with a model of collaborative synergies. We have come to realize the way in which each individual carries a dimension of the whole system. There is no ‘Star CEO’ directing activities in a star; rather, the organizing intelligence of the star comes from the synergistic interactions within the entire community of atoms. Co-Active Leadership shows each of us how to move into this form of consciousness and pass through the gateway to our unique role in this historic shift from the modern industrial society to an integral civilization.”
—Brian Thomas Swimme, professor, California Institute of Integral Studies; author of The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos and The Universe Is a Green Dragon; and creator of Canticle to the Cosmos, Earth’s Imagination, and The Powers of the Universe

“The Co-Active Leadership Model has been a powerful tool in the transformation of our organization from a more traditional structure to one of shared leadership where everyone feels a sense of responsibility for the whole. It’s been a remarkable shift, and I would recommend this book highly to anyone seeking to enhance participation, unleash creativity, and foster organizational change.”
—Bill Twist, cofounder and CEO, Pachamama Alliance

Co-Active Leadership is a groundbreaking book that cuts to the chase of what leadership really means in action! Clearly written with practical anecdotes, this is a must-read for anyone seeking to be a true leader.”
—Adrian Hayes, world-record-breaking adventurer, speaker, and leadership coach

“I believe that everyone has the capacity to lead, and this book could not say it any better! What a gift for anyone thinking about leadership. This book will help transform your approach to leadership as well as provide an excellent resource on Co-Active Leadership.”
—HRH Princess Noor bint Asem, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Co-Active Coach
