more we are grateful, the more we receive. Do you believe that?

any case, I'd like to practice some gratitude by saying thanks to our wonderful
corrector de pruebas
Kathleen Richardson. Hopefully
and probably you haven't noticed her work, because you won't know how many errors
she has caught and stopped! Kathleen is an important contributor to the editorial
team making life easier for me and reading more pleasant for you. We're also
looking for more people to play certain editorial roles. If you're interested,
please join the

President Natalie Tucker-Miller also shares some thanks
and an inkling of
the scope and intensity of the work going on behind the scenes at the IAC.

of our Certifiers, Barbra Sundquist, has contributed a very clear and useful
article about the errores de entrenamiento más comunes people make in trying
to get certified with the IAC. If you're on the certification track, or if you
just need a reminder about what masterful coaching is, this is a quick
and helpful read.

very pleased to be able to share an article from someone who is currently a
great source of inspiration to me. Anita Moorjani is a life coach who came extremely
close to death and who not only gained incredible insight into life, but also
explains her experiences in a very clear and accessible way. She has written

This month, let's take a
moment (or two) to applaud the many people who contribute their time and talent
to the care and feeding of the IAC. 

Note: Too numerous to detail in one announcement,
so please visit the "Amigos de la IAC"
page for a comprehensive list.

We continue to grow with
paid members and new certifications, and it's one of my personal thrills to
connect with the many of you who offer support, input and a continued commitment
to coaching. Since this is a membership organization, run on the fuel of volunteers,
it's important to me that these individuals are acknowledged and honored for
their beneficence!

To begin, a huge round of
applause for Angela Spaxman and her wonderful team of editorial assistants. 
Angela, in addition to being a member of the
Junta de Gobernadores,
has added wonderful flavor to the
Voz, the IAC's main means
of connecting and communicating with members and subscribers.  Her powerful,
clear and confident presence is more of an asset to the IAC than I am sure she
realizes. We can count ourselves quite fortunate to have her on the team, and
from the e-mail we receive on her behalf, I know the membership appreciates
her as well.  And although all board members have tasks outside their advisory
capacity, Angela willingly accepted this position which is above and beyond
the board commitment or expectation.

Some of the other committees
in which the
Junta de Gobernadores
are/will be involved include communications, public relations, strategic planning,
event planning, operations, outreach, international outreach, volunteer communications,
promotion and member benefits.  Big stuff.

Obviously, we are all very
excited as more of the initiatives take shape, increasing the viability and
the visibility of the IAC.  As Sebastian, from Disney's La Sirenita,
declared, "She's got legs, mon!"  If you're interested in being part of this
momentum, consider joining the

On a final note, let's send
love and appreciation to the
Panel de Certificación .
These masterful coaches continue to give of themselves on behalf of the coaching
profession and the IAC. I can guarantee that even those of us involved in
the inner workings do not have a full understanding of how much they give. 
They have donated hours upon hours to the betterment of the IAC, coach certification
and the language of masterful coaching.  Clearly the pioineers of the IAC certification
process, they work to uphold the high standards that have become the IAC's trademark. 

Como dije, cosas grandes.

Cinco errores de Entrenamiento más comunes

por Barbra
Sundquist, IAC-CC

someone asked me, "What are the five most common mistakes people make
on their IAC certification tapes?" I thought about it for a moment, and
then counted off in no particular order:

  1. talking too

  2. rushing to

  3. accepting at
    face value

  4. frenando

  5. narración,
    rather than asking

is my list. Other certifiers may have a slightly different list. But if
I could wave a magic wand, this is what I would love to hear:

  1. más silencio

  2. tratar de
    explore, not to solve

  3. desafiar

  4. say what
    you're afraid to say

  5. ask, rather
    than tell

1. Más silencio

is a very powerful coaching skill. Nine times out of ten if you stay
silent your client will eventually say something thoughtful or
revelatory. They are using the silence to process their thoughts or
access their intuition. That takes time, so don't rush them. The other
benefit of allowing more silence is that you are less likely to
interrupt or talk over your client.

Ejercicio: Hacer un gran cartel que dice "espera" que significa "Por qué estoy hablando?"

2. Por objeto la exploración, no para resolver

in too soon with advice or solutions is the most common mistake of new
coaches. Most clients do not want your solution, at least not at first.
They want you to help them explore all facets of their issue. If you do
that, the 'solution' or next step will present itself naturally.

Ejercicio: practicar haciendo preguntas solamente exploratorias tales como:

  • "How do you
    feel about it?"

  • "What have you
    tried already?"

  • "How did that
    work for you?"

3. supuestos reto

of a coach's role is to challenge client assumptions, excuses or
self-limiting beliefs. By doing that, we broaden their possibilities.
And isn't that what coaching is all about?

Ejercicio: Escuche y cuestionar los supuestos. Aquí hay unos ejemplos:

Cliente dice ...

Usted responde ...
"No pude ..." "¿Por qué no?"
"Of course x
is true"
"¿quien dice?"
"Yo sé eso…" "Is that a
fact or an assumption?"

4. Di lo que tiene miedo de decir

Ya sea
you call them inklings, intuition or "that little voice in your head",
they're there for a reason. Don't be afraid to share those thoughts
with your client. They often lead to breakthroughs.

give you a personal example. When I started coaching I was very strong
in some respects, but one thing I didn't do was challenge the status
quo with the client. I was a little too polite. As a result I wasn't
coaching to my full potential. And I wasn't giving my clients what they

changed the day I finally said what I was afraid to say. My client was
complaining that his wife was so negative. What immediately popped into
my head was "that's ironic, because tu estas una de las personas más negativas que conozco ".

that moment I had to decide whether to keep coaching at the "nice chat"
level or to go deeper. I decided to take the plunge. Of course, I
didn't just blurt out what was in my head. That would have been hurtful.

En su lugar,
I said, "There's something that I'd like to share with you, but it
might be hard for you to hear. Do you feel up to hearing it today?"

he agreed, I said "It's interesting to hear you talk about your wife's
negativity. Because my experience of you is that you are quite often
negative, too."

ended up having the most productive coaching call ever. In fact, he had
a major breakthrough. From that point on, I was a changed coach.

Listen for that little voice in your head and be fearless in sharing it
with your client. Then notice how you feel about your effectiveness as
un entrenador.

5. Pregunte, no diga

El entrenamiento es principalmente acerca de la solicitud, no se trata de contar.


ASK (mejor)
Es necesario x. Qué es lo que tú
think you need?
You're an

obviously feeling better.

converting "tell" statements into "ask" questions.

Life Around at the Last Possible Moment

y Anita Moorjani

I have been a life coach since January 2002, coaching
people to live their best lives and motivating them to turn their lives around.
However, by far the greatest achievement of my own life has been in turning
my own life around when only death seemed imminent.

In February 2006, I had end-stage Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
The cancer had spread throughout my body, my organs were failing and I was
already in a semi-comatose state being kept barely alive with piped nutrition
and oxygen. The doctors had told my family that this was the end and that
I only had a few more hours to live.  What followed can only be described
as a miracle for which I will be eternally grateful. No one knows exactly
how to explain what caused my health to turn around in just a number of hours,
leading to a total recovery with no trace of cancer cells to be found in my
body and no permanent damage to organs. (The full story of my cancer and healing
can be read on my website at:

Needless to say, this experience has caused me to
completely change how I view life and reality as well as how I live my own
life. It has, of course, also completely changed the way I conduct my coaching.

"Coaching Moments" toma un
reflexivo, y a veces alegre, mira cómo entrenar
puede ser entretejido en nuestra vida diaria.

Cuando los cielos se abren
por Janice Hunter

Estoy sentado en nuestra madera
mesa, mi cabello envuelto en una toalla. La lluvia torrencial golpea contra la ventana
en sábanas, corriendo por nuestro camino en torrentes que han convertido el césped delantero
en una fuente de agua pantanosa y los pavimentos en arroyos. En toda mi vida, yo
Nunca he visto lluvia como esta en Escocia, ni siquiera en invierno.

Hace diez minutos estaba parado
en los escalones de terracota de nuestro porche empotrado, mirando el agua
rebotando seis pulgadas del suelo y golpeando el techo de nuestro automóvil, estacionado
en el camino a pocos metros de distancia. Mientras estaba de pie, hipnotizado por el sonido, mis pies descalzos
salpicándose cuando la canaleta de arriba comenzó a desbordarse, el desbordamiento se convirtió
una cascada y nuestra puerta principal se convirtió en la oscura entrada a un refugio secreto detrás
una cascada. Mi pequeño hijo se unió a mí, sus ojos enormes y ansiosos por aventurarse.
"Entonces vete". Dije. "Solo quítate la camiseta primero ..."

Me miró asombrado
Se despojó de sus pantalones cortos de fútbol, ​​luego corrió chillando alrededor del auto, salpicando
en el estanque que una vez había sido el camino frente a nuestro garaje. Se paró riendo
debajo del canalón saltando arriba y abajo y agitando los brazos, fingiendo
Cantar en la ducha. Lo miré con anhelo.

Mi esposo le trajo un
toalla caliente cuando entró temblando pero radiante, goteando piscinas sobre nuestra madera
piso. "¡Deberías probarlo mamá!" Así que lo hice.

Salí corriendo de la cocina
puerta a nuestro patio trasero, levanté la cara hacia el cielo, levanté los brazos, sonreí,
giró una espiral lenta y se empapó hasta la piel. Rodeado por el denso verde
de arbustos maltrechos, el pelo pegado a mi cara, la lluvia cayendo por mi
mejillas como una ducha tibia, mi camiseta y mis jeans empapados de agua, me paré
empapado en salpicaduras, chorreando agua más allá de mis tobillos. Una oración se levantó sin querer
mientras miraba hacia arriba y saboreaba la lluvia. Respirando el pesado perfume de la lluvia empapada
ramas, tierra y aire, me sentí conectado con la vida misma, vivo, afortunado, bendecido ...

Una ducha caliente, algo tibia
toallas y un cambio de ropa más tarde, estoy sentado en mi computadora portátil, pensando, como
Escribo, de tierras resecas donde nunca llueve y de campos inundados,
granjas, pueblos, incluso calles de la ciudad en países ricos, donde los vientos salvajes,
ríos y maremotos han arrastrado la vida misma.

Para algunos, el regalo de la infancia.
La maravilla es un lujo en la lucha por la supervivencia.
