Welcome to the February 2013 issue of the IAC VOICE! This will be my last issue
as your editor, and I want to say what a pleasure it’s been. I have made
many wonderful connections with coaches around the world. You have enriched
my life, expanded my mind and improved my skills.
Thank you to Angela Spaxman for bringing me on board in December 2008 and helping
me find my place at the helm of this publication, and to Natalie Tucker Miller,
Bob Tschannen-Moran, Susan R. Meyer and Kristi Arndt for continuing to guide
me over the years.
Special appreciation goes to Elizabeth Nofziger and Diana McFarlane for all
of your work on each and every issue and blog post, so that we could keep up
with our publication schedule and quality standards.
Finally, thank you to our VOICE columnists and contributors, especially those
who were willing to keep delivering fresh and valuable content on a regular
basis. I enjoyed working with each of you and I felt privileged to be the first
to read your words.

Coaches Need to Remember that Not Everyone Likes Change
by Des Walsh
For a large proportion of the working population, the word “change”
can trigger anxiety. When coaches, consultants or trainers share our
insights into the possibilities and challenges of change, we need
to be very alert to pushback or even sabotage from our clients, and
have strategies to deal with those. Click
