“Wow… I didn’t know this was going to happen!” Have you ever heard yourself say these words?
Do you know when you know something, at a deep level? Well, that knowing has revealed itself for me.
After 28 years, and as of January 1, 2022, I have resigned from my position as senior trainer with The Co-Active Training Institute.
As passionate as I am about all things Co-Active, it’s time for me to let go of my roles as both coach trainer and leader of the Leadership Program during this time of huge transition in our world.
I find myself reflective and in awe of what I helped co-create as an early adopter inside the CTI system.
In the past 28 years…
- I co-led over 700 coaching workshops (both public and corporate)
- I co-led over 150 Leadership retreats (USA, Spain, Japan, China)
- I traveled to a total of 23 countries spreading the Co-Active way
- I racked up over 2.5 million frequent flying miles
- I had the absolute pleasure to co-lead with at least 200 fabulous co-leaders
- I enjoyed thousands of fun cocktails with amazing people from around the globe
- I loved having literally 10’s of thousands of coaching conversations!
Truth be told, I loved each and every moment of it all. It’s helped me become who I am today. And I like to think that I’m a better person because of it.
There are so many words to honor this moment, yet to model the first skill I ever learned at CTI, I will try to bottom line it:
I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the thousands of beautiful souls I’ve encountered during this fabulous journey… from meeting Henry Kimsey-House and Cynthia Loy-Darst in NYC in 1987, to my latest on-line Synergy coaching course last month, what an amazingly joyous experience it has all been.
And a huge personal thank you to Karen Kimsey-House, Henry Kimsey-House and Laura Whitworth who had the dream and created the structure… and then made the choice of inviting me into this work. CTI was (and always will be) a Game Changer for me.
There are not enough pages in a journal to answer the question, “Who have I become?” Yet, it has been such an honor to be an early adopter of this transformational work and such an honor to share it with so many around the globe.
Even though I am ending with the actual role of trainer for CTI, I will never ever stop being a very proud user, promoter and representative of Co-Active. It’s now a beautiful time for the new voices, the new talents, and the new leaders to take the Co-Active training, wisdom and magic to its next level.
Once you know The Co-Active Way, it lives on forever.
I am deeply and proudly complete!
So much love,
Rick Tamlyn, CPCC, MCC
