This weekend, I celebrated a dear friend’s wedding. It was a lovely ceremony with all the traditions I am used to – cake cutting, tossing the bouquet, etc. What made it an even more special event was that the families were from two different parts of the world, Spain and Chile. Witnessing the union of these two cultures was beautiful and awe-inspiring. It so happens that many of our articles this month focus on the diversity of the IAC family, different cultures, and how coaching fits in around the world.
We’ve also got the usual monthly line-up: new insight into the Masteries, great views on coaching up-close and as a whole. We are also introducing another new monthly segment, Inside the IAC Licensing Committee, which will keep you up-to-date on important changes and improvements within the IAC.
I hope you enjoy the VOICE this month! As always, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for unique perspectives.
