“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!” – Sitting Bull
In my part of the world we officially welcome the spring season this month, a time when new growth and new life emerges. The IAC Coaching Mastery #8 immediately comes to mind: Inviting Possibility – Creating an environment that allows ideas, options and opportunities to emerge.
This month I am delighted to welcome a new member to the IAC Board of Governors, Marissa Afton. She joins us from Colorado, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with her. Get to know her by visiting our website at www.certifiedcoach.org. We still have several volunteer opportunities available and whether you are new to the IAC or you’ve been a member since the beginning, we invite you to consider submitting your application and “inviting possibility”. Contact a board member for more information.
We also invite possibility by engaging with the IAC community on Facebook and LinkedIn. Our online communities are another environment that allows ideas, options and opportunities to emerge. Your ideas and suggestions matter, so if you have something to share, I would love to hear from you. And check the events section of the VOICE for the dates and times of our upcoming monthly Memberchat calls with Natalie Tucker Miller. If you have questions, she has answers or knows where to find them.
In the coming months you may notice some changes to the website. We are working to improve the responsiveness, making it easier for you to access it from your mobile devices. We’ll also give it a bit of a “spring makeover”. We will keep you informed as we move forward, but don’t expect any major disruptions.
One of the things I love most about my position at the IAC is the opportunity to connect with our members and volunteers. It is inspiring to be a part of an organization that, as stated on our website and demonstrated every day, “envisions a world where coaching professionals commit to continuously learning, growing, collaborating and holding themselves accountable; coaching recipients are inspired to achieve their desired outcomes; and the world benefits in many surprising, life-giving ways.” Yes, my friends, the spring has come.
