“All our sweetest hours fly fastest” – Virgil
I adore this time of year. While out walking my 3 year old Yorkie, Rosco, yesterday I noticed white wild flowers blooming at the park near my home, a welcome sign that warmer days are ahead.
Welcome to a new month. It’s hard to believe that we are already a quarter of the way through 2014, and this first quarter has been very sweet indeed.
We continue to work on several projects, including updating our website. One of the main goals is to make the IAC website accessible in multiple languages. We also continue to assess our branding and marketing plan, as well as review the 2010-15 strategic plan.
The IAC Chapters have been very active around the globe and there are currently three conferences scheduled for 2014. There is a European Conference scheduled for October 9th and 10th in Budapest, a Malaysia Conference will be held August 19th and 20th in Kuala Lumpur and the Latin American Conference is scheduled for August 20th in Chili.
Finally, “Living the Masteries” is a concept that continues to come up in our meetings and discussions at the IAC. The mission of the IAC is to expand the path of coaching mastery by inspiring the ongoing evolution and application of universal coaching standards. Coaches are also committed to their own personal evolution, and they set very high standards for their own lives. If you are a student of the Masteries, you understand that they not only integrate into your coaching practice but your personal life as well, which is what “Living the Masteries” is about. When I began my journey as a coach in 2001, I was the mother of two young children. I remember very clearly how the coaching concepts I was learning impacted my role as a parent, and they continue to impact my life today. Now that I am the parent of two very bright and independent adults whose lives consistently grow and expand beyond my own, I continue to appreciate the impact that coaching has had on my life.
Speaking of “Living the Masteries”, if you haven’t listened to the Master Coach Interview Series currently on the IAC website, I encourage you to do so. It’s like inviting a Master Mastery Coach into your living room for a heart-to-heart talk, so grab your beverage of choice and enjoy.
In closing, I’d like to remind you that my door is always open and I enjoy hearing from you.
Wishing you many sweet hours,
Vicki Zanini, President
