From the Editor


Greetings, and welcome to the May 2010 issue of the VOICE. In his President's Message, titled The IAC: A Life-Giving Organization, Bob Tschannen-Moran reflects on the life-giving qualities of the newly-adopted IAC strategic plan. He notes how the Plan calls the IAC to not only support coaches and coaching organizations but also to serve the interests of coaching clients and to meet the needs of the world at large.

In the BOG Action News, Susan R. Meyer has her regular monthly updates, as well as an important invitation from Past-President Angela Spaxman.

In our first feature article this month, authors Shawn Ireland and Lorne Kelton present a tool for critical thinking that will help us on the path to self-awareness. Next, regular VOICE contributor Suzi Pomerantz calls us to task again to get serious about building our businesses and make a crucial mind shift about marketing.

Elizabeth Nofziger takes the helm of the Inside Scoop—Ask the Certifiers column this month to answer the question, "Can masterful coaching include yes/no questions?" Finally, in this month's Living the Masteries column, Alison Davis introduces us to coach Louise Legat, who has a beautiful story about how we can use the IAC Coaching Masteries® to turn an inner critic into an inner coach.
