From the Editor


Welcome to the February 2012 issue of the IAC VOICE!

In her February President's Message, Susan R. Meyer announces some exciting new changes to the IAC certification designations, as well as an opportunity for coaches in training.

There is a reminder below about your ReciproCoach benefit—coaching, mentoring and supervision that is all included in the cost of your IAC membership. It's an incredible opportunity and one that reinforces the IAC's commitment to professional development.

There really are so many benefits to IAC membership. Have you ever wondered about how you could give back? Tatiana Abend has some surprising ideas for you.

In the Inside Scoop, you can listen in on what the IAC Certifiers are listening for when they evaluate applicants for IAC certification.

We bid a farewell to the Living the Masteries column, and thank Alison Davis wholeheartedly for all of the gems she has provided. She closes out the series with her own look at Mastery #9 and how she is using it to bring her 2012 vision to life.

Our business-building article this month is about how to optimize your LinkedIn profile to attract new coaching clients. First-time contributor Louisa Chan is a certified coach and social media specialist from Synergy Marketing Pro in Malaysia.

Our coaching feature article is an interview with IAC Board of Governors member Uta Guse, who shares about her experience with the Learning Agreement proposal process.

Submission guidelines for the VOICE are available on the website. Submissions are welcome anytime through the month.

Please contact me with your article ideas and your feedback about this issue. Enjoy!

Warm wishes,

Linda Dessau, CPCC
