From the Editor

from a tired traveler. Having just returned home from São Miguel, Portugal,
I am brimming with stories to tell, and couldn’t resist sharing one picture
of the breathtaking scenery. From hiking the crater of a volcano to enjoying
octopus salad with the locals, I am fulfilled and exhausted (in a good way!)

As Susan and our contributors address in various ways this month, we are constantly
surrounded by opportunities to learn new things. Sometimes these learning experiences
are hidden in our everyday routines, and sometimes they jump out at us in vibrant,
unexpected ways. However we encounter these moments, it is wonderful when we
can approach them with a thirst for knowledge; a desire to grow and learn.

Along with the articles from our fantastic contributors, the IAC provides many
learning opportunities. Be sure to check out information on the May teleseminar
and the International Leadership and Coaching Conference below.

It is important to take a moment to acknowledge Martha Pasternack, who, as
of this newsletter, is officially one of our monthly contributors. I hope you
appreciate her lovely voice and look forward to her unique insight each month
as much as I do. Welcome aboard, Martha!

Diana McFarlane also deserves major acknowledgment. I have begun to understand
the intricacy of the IAC and how hard each and every person works, and must
make it known that Diana is the one who transforms all of these words into the
accessible and readable VOICE that you see before you. Thank you Diana, for
your talent and time!

As always, we look forward to your comments, questions, and article contributions
for the future of the VOICE. Thank you again for your support. Please contact
