Hello and welcome to the April 2013 issue of the IAC VOICE! It has been a pleasure becoming better acquainted with this community as I find my footing as editor.
Last weekend, I traveled to the Adirondacks and spent a few days alone in a cabin in the woods. Without phone or internet, I was invited to appreciate the silence and the time that stretched before me. In many ways it was a challenge, but ultimately it was an incredible learning experience; being truly alone and allowing my thoughts to wander organically. I found myself answering some of my own life questions and returning to the “real world” with a renewed approach to communicating with my coworkers, friends, and family.
Our articles this month serendipitously speak of the value of silence, growth, and communication. The contributors this month come from various backgrounds and skills. Our hope is to cover many spectrums for every reader of the VOICE; from beginners to experts to anything in between. I hope you appreciate these unique perspectives as much as I did!
In addition to our articles, President Susan Meyer reminds us of the rewards of volunteering and shares many opportunities with us. Dates for member chats and webinars are listed below. We’ve also decided to introduce a new element to the VOICE that we hope adds a little humor to your day. Please see below for a list of what April’s issue of the VOICE has to offer you.
As always, submissions to the VOICE are encouraged. I would love to hear new voices and thoughts about the IAC and the coaching community – after all, I am still learning. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, comments, or contributions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best, Beth Ann
