From the Editor


Your VOICE is changing!

Welcome to the July issue of the IAC VOICE. We have an exciting announcement today. As of next week, we will be publishing new content all through the month at our blog, This gives you three ways to access our high-quality articles about coaching:

1. You can continue to enjoy our monthly email newsletter (subscribe here). As of August 2010, this will be a much more concise publication featuring the latest news from the IAC. You'll also find links and a brief description of all of the new articles that were posted to the blog since the last newsletter, so you can read the ones that interest you the most.

2. You can visit the blog directly (new posts will be added on Thursdays) at

3. You can subscribe to our blog and receive updates as soon as new posts are added. Choose between the RSS feed or email updates. You'll find both options on the right-hand side of the blog, underneath the list of monthly archives.

For today, we've packed your email with many goodies to enjoy. Growing pains? Not for the IAC! In this month's President's Message, Bob Tschannen-Moran describes some of the IAC's "growing pleasures," while Susan R. Meyer brings us up to date on BOG news and bids farewell to two of our valued Board members.

As Bob explains, the IAC's new strategy is getting a lot of attention from around the world. If you would like to be part of this amazing adventure, be sure to check out the two leadership volunteer opportunities that have just come available.

I had the opportunity to contribute to today's issue by interviewing seasoned coach Mattison Grey, IAC-CC about her approach to selling. Listen in to our conversation to find out why Mattison says selling is not marketing, selling is coaching.

Natalie Tucker Miller breaks it to us gently this month in the Inside Scoop – Ask the Certifiers column. The only way to get to the Carnegie Hall of coaching is to practice, practice, practice!

IAC-licensee Deborah Williamson is featured in our Tools for Coaching Mastery column this month with a fascinating look at the two complimentary practices of yoga and coaching, and how they led her to The Advent of Yoga Life Coaching™.

I've really been enjoying the stories that Alison Davis has been gathering for her Living the Masteries column, including today's story from Angela Spaxman. They are teaching me about the Masteries in a fun, engaging way. Where do you see the Masteries showing up in your life? Please send your contributions to Alison at

Are you on Twitter? You can follow our VOICE authors and columnists as well as some of the IAC BOG members. Simply visit or subscribe to the list from your Twitter account.
