From the Editor
Welcome to the February 2011 issue of the IAC VOICE!
For those who are paying close attention, you will have noticed a pretty big change in our circulation numbers this month—from 14,118 to 7,988. We didn't lose 6,130 subscribers in one month; we've recently changed to a new email broadcast service and we now have a much more realistic count of our active subscribers—engaged readers who want to hear from us and stay involved in the IAC community. And we appreciate each and every one of you!
In this month's President's Message, Bob Tschannen-Moran explores the theme of coaching in society, and how the IAC is poised to lead this dangerous revolution.
This month's featured member benefit provider is IJCO—The International Journal of Coaching in Organizations. John B. Lazar, Executive Editor, unearthed a gem from his 8-year archive of coaching articles for us.
Congratulations to Bonnie Chan and the rest of the Masteries® translation team who have an exciting announcement for us this month!
In case you missed the Inside Scoop column when we posted it at the beginning of January, Lead Certifier Natalie Tucker Miller walked us through the IAC's new certification renewal process.
Ed Britton, IAC's new Capacity Building Specialist, is also the author of this month's Living the Masteries column. He writes about Mastery #3—Engaged Listening, and reflects on what's involved when you "lend your mind" to someone else for awhile.
Alex Carter is back this month with some excellent guidance for anyone who is thinking about non-profit coaching, in our coaching feature article.
Last, and certainly not least, Kathy Mallary delivers the business-building goods with her feature article, 3 Simple Steps for Rocking Your Coaching Biz in 2011. Rock on, coaches, rock on!
Our 2011 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!
