From the Editor
After some technical challenges that created a long interruption in our ability to communicate with our members, the IAC VOICE is back!
Hello, I’m Barbra Sundquist, IAC-CC. I’m honored to be the new Editor of the IAC Voice.
With this issue, our IAC President, Natalie Tucker Miller, IAC-CC brings you up-to-date with some key happenings at the IAC. Chief among those activities has been a complete overhaul of our database and other computer systems.
Also included in this issue is a list of all the coaches who have achieved their IAC-CC (IAC Certified Coach) credential to date. We salute these masterful coaches!
Starting in May, you can expect to receive a monthly issue of the IAC VOICE in your email box. My first priority as Editor is to answer all the questions that might be on your mind, such as:
What does the IAC offer me?
How do I get certified by the IAC?
What is the difference in the credentialing from the various coaching associations?
I heard about new criteria for getting certified by the IAC. When will this happen?
We know that getting the IAC-CC credential is a high priority for many of our members. To help you along the way, our Certifying Team, which currently consists of:
Sali Taylor, IAC-CC
Nina East, IAC-CC
Karen Van Cleve, IAC-CC
Barbra Sundquist, IAC-CC
will write a monthly column called “Certifier’s Corner”. The column will provide practical guidance regarding mysterious issues such as “what exactly are the Certifiers looking for in Step 2 tapes, anyhow?” and “how can I relax and “coach naturally” when I know I’m being tested?”
You can also look forward to connecting with the international coaching community through feature articles in our “Another Voice” column. And Janice Hunter, a coach from Scotland, will contribute a regular column called "Coaching Moments" which takes a thoughtful, and sometimes lighthearted, look at how coaching can be interwoven into our daily lives.
The IAC Voice is the main way we communicate with our nearly 10,000 members. I am eager to hear from you, particularly if you have a comment about anything you’ve read in the VOICE (your Letter to the Editor may be edited and printed in the Voice). And if you know of a coach or coaching organization that is doing something innovative to bring coaching to the world, please let me know!
Hello, I'm Natalie Tucker Miller, IAC-CC. Since January 2006, I've had the honor of leading the strong, dedicated and extraordinary Board of Governors and team of volunteers who serve the International Association of Coaching.
The IAC's contribution to the coaching profession, the well-being of clients, and our international constituency is stronger than ever. The behind the scenes initiatives that have been manifesting, support and enhance this commitment. I'd like to share some of those endeavors here:
Our soon-to-launch, upgraded website. Matthew Clulow (www.clulowassociates.com) has worked tirelessly to create a new look and feel, which is reflected in this newsletter.
An international team of coaches involved in our pursuit of evolving standards and measures of coaching mastery.
Strategic planning that will ensure a continued rigorous and high quality certification.
A return of a regularly scheduled newsletter, the IAC VOICE.
Dedication and commendation of our exceptional certifying board, whose members have donated countless hours of their time refining the certification process.
A decision to increase fees for Step 2 certification to $350 effective June 1, 2006. This indicates a move in the direction of more fairly compensating our Certifier's time (and in the future the fees will be further increased to better reflect the real cost of certification) Our appreciation to our devoted Certifiers is immeasurable. Get to know them here: http://www.certifiedcoach.org/certification.html#meetboard
Please visit our current website www.certifiedcoach.org for up-to-date info, and be on the lookout for the announcement of the new website launch!
Questions? Don't hesitate to contact our fabulous, diligent and "could not do this without her" Membership Team Chair, Michelle Casto, by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments, greetings, or pats on the back!
Of course, our Board Members would love to hear from you as well. Visit them here:
And our most distinguished appreciation to Michael "Coop" Cooper, Ruth Ann Harnisch, IAC-CC and Keri McGinnis, our outgoing board members, and Barbara Mark, currently serving on the Board as Past President, who gave untold amounts of their time and resources to keep the dream of performance-based certification alive and viable!
Until next time,
