As a new teacher at my university, I have been in orientation all week long preparing for the start of classes next week. There has been a strong emphasis on our mission as composition teachers to encourage our Freshman to truly consider and examine culture around them. What is being said beyond the text? How can we view the world in a new way? This is a quality I have always loved about the coaching community: coaches are always seeking deeper truths in their own lives as well as their client’s.
Allow our articles this month to aid you in viewing everyday life in a deeper way. By reviewing the opinions and ideas of other coaches, I hope it helps to refine your own techniques and skills in your own unique way!
Is there something you’d like to see in the VOICE? A particular subject you’d like us to address? Please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for new perspectives and look forward to hearing from you.
