From the Editor


Welcome to the January 2012 issue of the IAC VOICE!

Incoming President Susan R. Meyer looks back in appreciation of the work that's been done, and looks forward to her new role in making the IAC's mission a reality around the world.

In his final monthly column for the VOICE, Past President Bob Tschannen-Moran lists the five priorities he identified at the start of his term, and reflects on where we’ve come and where we have yet to grow.

You'll read below about an IAC membership benefit that you can claim right now to receive coaching, mentoring or supervision at no extra cost.

Our other featured IAC member benefit this month is Annuity Managers Agency, LLC, and Andrew J. Cavaliere contributes an article that helps us understand life insurance riders.

In the Inside Scoop, Natalie Tucker Miller answers the question, "If I have to show all nine masteries in just 30 minutes, isn't that kind of artificial?" Read her take on coaching a client in 30 minutes or less and then join the discussion on LinkedIn.

Alison Davis welcomes Graham Kean as a new contributor to the Living the Masteries column, sharing on the topic of Mastery #8, Inviting Possibility.

Welcome back to IAC Licensee Doris Helge, who delivers a fascinating look into our dream world in her Tools for Coaching Mastery article.

Our coaching feature article from Angela Spaxman is about the top six compelling reasons for coaches to train in mindfulness, and she gets us started with a mindfulness primer.

Trust-building marketing expert Kristen Beireis turns some conventional marketing advice on its head with her business-building feature article, "Why your big list isn’t all it’s cracked up to be."

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
