In Co-Active Coaching we´re working with 3 guiding forces: your crew, don´t matter how you call it, it´s your ( following Seligman on this term ) your character. What´s holding you back calls CTI „the saboteurs“ – fears, automated negative thoughts, limiting beliefs … all that stuff. And the captain – the bigger knowing, the braveness … what Shirzad Chamine calls the sage.
So the concepts between CTI and Shirzad Chamine ( Positive Intelligence ) have a lot in common.
I love Positive Intelligence being so tangible and that convrsations can start with a basic test. Doesn´t mean that is the final truth but it gives great insights as starting points.
The awareness, that every „gremlin“ is just a different shape of a great strength is great and what I love about personalizing these forces is that making them from subject ( me ) to object ( ( it ) helps clients to let them go easily. It´s not you, it´s just what your old brain is telling you.

These 10 and a million individual saboteurs we all have – craving for 3 guiding forces: being free, being loved and being secure. Feel free to make the test, it´s free, you will only get advertising eMails from which you can sign out and I strongly recommend everyone in Leadersip & Life to read his book. In leadership there are very often a strong judge, controller and the restless working and things really get easier if the overall awareness and emotional intelligence to deal with them increase due to coaching. The sad thing sometimes is: what brought you here will not get you there.
