From the Editor

Florida photoGreetings,

A recent trip to St. Augustine, Florida has me gushing about the town. Being one of the oldest European-established settlements in the U.S., I had quite an adventure filled with beautiful architecture, history, and sunshine. For me, it was a much-needed break from the “real world”, as well as a great learning experience – I always love exposure to new places and people.

This month, the VOICE has a definite focus on the appreciation and acceptance of new experiences and intercultural interactions. Jan O’Brien poses new questions about effective communication across cultures and guest contributor Marissa Afton expands on the challenges we may face when working with different cultures. In addition to this focus, we explore the road to coaching mastery and remain updated on the licensing committee and open chat calls.

As always, please contact us at with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for unique perspectives and look forward to hearing from you!
