“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” -Helen Keller
This certainly captures my sentiments as we approach the halfway mark of what’s been an incredible year.
I’ve just returned from visiting family where I had the opportunity to stay at the historical Windsor Hotel in Americas, Georgia. The hotel is said to be haunted, even certified as such, and attracts researchers from all over the country. The staff there was super and the ghosts left us alone for the most part. There was a moment when I was certain I heard the ghost of a little girl whispering “mom” in my ear, but who believes in ghosts, right? The hotel was built in 1892 and renovated in 2010. It was built on a strong foundation and continues to thrive under the supervision of devoted caretakers.
The IAC was established in March of 2003 and in 2005 underwent its own renovation with the goal of evolving the coaching standards to include a global perspective. It took over 24 months to develop the IAC Coaching Masteries with a team of coaches from several countries and a variety of coaching models. Unlike the Windsor, the coaching industry is still very young and has some growing up to do. But like the Windsor, the IAC foundation is solid and its caretakers are devoted.
And the Windsor and the IAC just may have something else in common. Every now and then I am quite certain that the ghost of Thomas Leonard leans in and whispers in my ear, “trust your inklings”. I am sure I’m not the only one.
To our success!
