Happy New Year and welcome!
In this month’s President’s Message, Bob Tschannen-Moran wraps up 2010 with appreciation for what’s been and excitement for what’s ahead. He had so many wonderful things to share that you’ll need to click through to the blog to read the entire thing! Please don’t skip this step – it’s a delightful read. Always prolific with his enthusiastic musings about coaching, Bob was also a featured author in the December 2010 issue of choice, the magazine of professional coaching.
Following up on an event Bob announced last month, Karen Lim provides more details about the CCDA International Coaching Forum in Taiwan in March 2011.
