IAC VOICE, Volume 4, Issue 81, March 2013


From the


My name is Beth Ann Miller and I am the new editor of the IAC VOICE. I am
honored to become a part of your community at this exciting time: today marks
the 10th anniversary of the IAC! What a time to celebrate your many achievements
and continued growth and success. I personally cannot wait to become more acquainted
with many of you wonderful coaches.

In the spirit of getting to know each other, I’ll share a little about
myself: I am native New Englander and hold a B.A. in Creative Writing. While
I am not a coach myself, much of my life has been influenced by the power of
coaching. As a writer of both fiction and non-fiction, I have found that it
is essential to acknowledge characters for their strengths, weaknesses, and
everything in between. I find this paralleled in coaching, within the pursuit
of understanding, acceptance, and growth. Honoring this “humanness”
sparked my appreciation for the world of coaching.

This month we have much to look forward to. President Susan Meyer takes a walk
down memory lane, commemorating past presidents and accomplishments; we learn
about lifetime memberships, new fees, and the ins and outs of coaching contracts;
as well as several other “nuggets” of wisdom and insight from valued
members of the IAC community. See below for a more detailed outline of what
this issue of the VOICE has to offer.

There has been a bit of a learning curve this month as I dove into this exciting
world, and I want to thank everyone who has supported me in this transition.
I understand there are some big shoes to fill and would like to acknowledge
Linda for her dedication and hard work over the years. I am looking forward
to the future of the VOICE: be prepared for style and content changes as we
kick off our next decade of greatness!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, comments, or contributions:

All the best,

Beth Ann

Let the Celebration Begin!

It’s March. There are signs that, in my part of the world, winter will
be ending soon. It’s also prime college basketball season and many in
the US will be glued to their televisions watching March Madness. I hope that
all of you around the world will be glued to the IAC VOICE, blog
, LinkedIn
and Facebook
pages as we begin a year-long celebration of our 10th anniversary.

Looking Back

The IAC® was the brainchild of Thomas J. Leonard, who is often credited
as the founder of the modern coaching profession. It began with research conducted
by Michael “Coop” Cooper in the spring of 2002. The original Board,
created in the summer of 2002, consisted of Thomas, Coop, Laura Hendershot and
Susan Austin Lawler. The organization was launched as the International Association
of Certified Coaches.

Initially, membership was free and the entire CoachVille community automatically
became members. By 2003 the organization, under President Michael “Coop,”
was renamed The International Association of Coaches. It was established on
March 11, 2003 as a nonprofit organization incorporated under the New Mexico
Nonprofit Corporation Act. At this time, Coop stepped down as President, a role
assumed by Barbara Mark. Shirley Anderson chaired the Board of Governors.

It had taken Thomas over a year to develop the first international standards
for coaching certification. This was based on the 15 Proficiencies, a result
of reviewing 20 years worth of best coaching practices. Susan Austin Lawler
was a prime force in the creation of this document. The result was a rigorous
certification process that goes beyond just academic or vocational qualifications.
The certification embraces universal guidelines, principles, proficiencies,
standards and behaviors that make a coach a great coach, regardless of profession
or geography. The standards continue to evolve in response to client requirements
and expectations of the industry.

Thomas’ untimely death, the IAC negotiated with Dave Buck, new
owner of CoachVille and was granted the rights to the Proficiencies.
In 2005, president Barbara Mark and the IAC began the lengthy process
of developing its own intellectual property, creating the multi-national
process that led to the development of the IAC Masteries™. Beginning
in 2006, president Natalie Tucker Miller saw the project through its
completion. The team that developed the new IAC Coaching Masteries™
worked diligently for over 24 months to provide a model of coaching
skill that embodied universal sensibilities as well as an evolving
understanding of coaching. These were released in 2007 and formally
adopted as the IAC’s sole standards in 2008.

As more people come to realize that great coaching can make a significant difference
in their lives, the marketplace has responded with more coaches from all walks
of life and more professionals incorporating coaching skills into their work.
Academic and vocational training for coaches has also become a growing field.
To better reflect the influence of coaching skills throughout many professions,
in 2007, the IAC changed its name to International Association of Coaching.

In 2008, President Angela Spaxman’s efforts included creating a process
for licensing schools teaching the Masteries™. Angela also spearheaded
a strategic planning process that reinforced our mission, strengthened the infrastructure
and set the groundwork for increased learning opportunities.

Bob Tschannen-Moran became the IAC’s fifth President in 2010 and was
tasked with implementing the strategic plan. During his tenure, in response
to our desire to document lifelong learning, we created the Learning Agreement
Process and developed a research initiative.

With the help of a strong Board of Governors during my own term, which began
in 2012, we have been able to fully implement the Learning Agreement process,
and have reexamined our certification process to create a second level of certification

To date, more than 13,000 coaches in over 80 countries have subscribed to our
newsletter and we have more than 800 active members worldwide. Due to its simplicity,
flexibility and very high quality standards, an increasing number of coaches
aspire to IAC certification.

Looking Forward

Under the editorship of Beth Ann Miller, the VOICE will have a new look, a
new feel, and expanded content. Let us know what you think.

We’re also expanding our webinars. In late February, Kim Ades launched
a monthly webinar series about IAC member benefits. These are educational webinars
in response to frequent messages from members who don’t know what benefits
we offer or don’t understand how to take the best advantage of a benefit.
They will be archived in the member benefits area of the website so that you
can access them at any time. Although the presenter will give their contact
information, these are pitch-free.

In March, we will be continuing the series of interviews with successful IAC
coaches. Ed Britton interviewed several of our Asian coaches last year and these
are available on the website. In March, I will kick off the North American series
with an interview with Aileen Gibb. This will be followed by interviews with
Natalie Tucker Miller and Doris Helge. We’re planning on at least one
interview a month for the next year.

Members of the IAC Board of Governors will continue to facilitate two calls
a month – one exclusively for IAC members and one open to members and
non-members. By the end of March, we will also have a members’ forum on
the website. Please drop in to a call or log in to the forum to maintain contact
with other members, raise concerns, share ideas and get advice.

Lifetime Membership

Last month I promised to reveal the mystery of multiple lifetime memberships.
In our first year, Natalie Tucker Miller, Anna Dargitz Hodge, Shirley Anderson,
Susan Austin Lawler, Angela Spaxman and Ruth Ann Harnish showed their faith
in the IAC by becoming lifetime members for $1,000. This means that Anna, as
one of the first people to have continuous membership is now a double lifetime
member and Natalie, who was also part of that first group and is a past President,
technically has three.

I can’t guarantee you thee lifetimes or even three lifetime memberships,
but, the IAC would like to offer you one lifetime membership. From March 2013
through March 2014, if you would like to demonstrate your support of all we
are doing and help the IAC grow, you can become a lifetime member for $1,200.
We’ll issue you a special certificate and display your name proudly on
the website.

And, Finally, Because You asked …

As you know, we recently changed our coach designations to Master Masteries
Coach, Certified Masteries Coach and Masteries Practitioner. In response to
a reminder from one of our members, we will get new banners and logos as well
as revised certificate out to you this month.

Some of you have asked for more information on practice building. There are
many fine articles in the archives, and, to save you from a lot of hunting,
we’ve created an ebook that will be available to all members by the end
of March.

Our Canadian members have been asking for liability insurance and for years
we’ve been unsuccessful in finding a provider. We finally have found one!
Check the Member
Benefits section
for details.

Finally, some of you are experiencing email overload. I want to assure you
that the IAC will never send you promotional materials. We don’t have
affiliate relationships with any of our benefit providers. We do, however, want
to be sure that you are aware of opportunities and events. Whenever possible,
we’ll be combining events into one email. I hope that this reduces clutter
for all of you.

I’m looking forward to finding more ways to help each of you move along
the path to coaching master. Please continue to let me know what the IAC can
do for you.

warm wishes for your success,
Susan R. Meyer

Blast From the Past!

On March 11th, 2003, ten years ago today, the IAC launched! Let’s take
a look at a page from 2003, when the virtual doors first opened.

This is so wonderfully “Thomas”! Although the IAC has changed and
evolved with its members and the profession, you’ll see that the overall
philosophy of how the IAC approaches coach certification has endured.

And now, from ten years ago…

About Us

IAC officially launched on March 11, 2003 as a non-profit entity in the state
of New Mexico. By the end of 2003, we expect to be the largest coaching association
in the world.

We are managed by a volunteer Board
of Governors
, originally appointed to the board, however Governors positions
will be elected beginning in 2004. The IAC consists of several component
and manages dozens of projects
focused on the coaching industry and client interests.

IAC received startup funding from CoachVille with a $25,000 launch grant and
will work closely with the CoachVille during the first year as we grow and wean.
Our intention is to be a separate entity responsible for managing the certification
process of the 15
and a membership organization focused on furthering the interests
of coaching clients worldwide.

Michael "Coop" Cooper is coordinating the IAC efforts and is supported
by teams of coaches designing and building out each of the components outlined

Yes! You can get involved!

IAC has several projects, or special focus areas, that are in the works. We
need your help! As you know, we are a volunteer organization and can only be
successful with the generous support of our members.

The 3 Steps to Earning the Certified Coach designation

These steps are taken in sequence.

Step 1. Score 80% or higher on a comprehensive written examination.
The exam is administered online, and consists of 200 multiple choice questions
from a bank of 1500 such questions, including questions on ethical/legal practices.
If you do not pass the written test, you'll need to wait 30 days before taking
it again

Step 2. Score 80% or higher on the Coaching Proficiencies scorecarding.
You'll be audio taping 3 coaching sessions, with real clients and with their
permission, and, after the fact, three Certifying Coaches from the IAC will
listen to the RealAudio tape of your sessions and scorecard your coaching, based
on your demonstration of the 15 Coaching Proficiencies. (We'll handle the recording
process for you.) You will receive a copy of your scorecard and comments made
by the Certifying Coaches.

Step 3. Successfully complete a brief interview with 3 Certifying Coaches.
The purpose of this interview is to cover any of the 15 proficiencies that were
not demonstrated during your 3 scorecarded coaching sessions. During this interview
you will coach one of the Certifying Coaches on a scenario designed specifically
for each of the proficiencies you did not cover in the recorded calls with your

Additional information about the certification process.

  1. As you can see, we've made the process as simple as possible.
  2. Yet, as simple as the process is, we believe it's the most rigorous certification
    process of any coach certifying agency.
  3. In order to pass the written exam, scorecarding and interview segments,
    you will need to have coaching experience, and full knowledge of the 15
    Coaching Proficiencies
  4. We (deliberately) do not require a set number of hours of experience as
    a coach. Why? Because experience alone doesn't "make you" a Certified
    Coach. Rather, we rely on validated, real-world demonstration of the coaching
    proficiencies to award the Certified Coach designation.

There have been a few changes in the process (2 recordings instead of 3, for
instance), and an addition of designations honoring skilled coaches and practitioners,
and of course, the introduction of the IAC VOICE in January of 2004. The most
obvious change is the transition to the Masteries, the body of work developed
for and by coaches around the globe.

There are also signs of the maturity of the organization. Over the years the
Board of Governors and other volunteers have created IAC Chapters, grown our
member benefits division, introduced Licensing of the Masteries, created many
of the internal policies and procedures that help ensure the viability and sustainability
of IAC. It’s taken many people, countless hours and a variety of expertise
to grow and nurture the IAC, and, as was in 2003, the IAC invites you to get
involved! For more information, contact one of the IAC Board of Governors members
or feel free to reach out to anyone you may know personally who is part of the

Celebrating Lifetime Memberships – Insight from Lifetime Members

I was studying with Thomas Leonard in 2002 when he first created the organization
that became the IAC. His vision for a coach certification that reflects what
really matters to clients is as compelling now as it was back then. IAC coach
certification offers a simple, powerful pathway to the coach who wants to do
great work and have a credential that represents that. The IAC brand is clear:
coaches who have embraced coaching mastery and have pledged to uphold professional
ethics and standards.

Julia Stewart, MMC,
President, http://www.schoolofcoachingmastery.com

Coaching is a growing profession with a set of standards, values, ethics and
skills. As the profession continues to grow, having an organization that embodies
those principles is vital. And there are a few that do embody those. I appreciate
the IAC because it is the only coaching organization that is an “open
tent”, embracing and certifying coaches who meet those principles and
standards regardless of what kind of training they’ve had.

I was one of the three individuals who created and administered the first IAC
exam. The team quickly saw that some people are innately skilled as coaches
without any training, and others may have been educated as a coach but lacked
the necessary understanding to be truly skilled.

This is important for a fledgling profession. We must recognize that there
are talented individuals who have been coaching for longer than coach training
has existed. They are experienced and masterful, and need to be included in
the “open tent” of coaches, in addition to individuals who have
specialized training outside of coaching, who embrace the coaching profession.

Donna Steinhorn, MMC

What the IAC has meant to me:

"For me, the IAC has meant being part of, and supporting, an organization
sincerely interested in both masterful coaching and forwarding the interest
of coaches and coaching worldwide. As an organization, the IAC promotes social
equity: it does not require members or candidates for certification to attend
costly coach training programs, or to have documented extensive paid coaching
experiences. Membership fees are reasonable, too.

Membership in the IAC has also meant that I have an easy structure for accountability
around my professional and personal development through benefits and the Learning
Agreement process. Everything the IAC does, it does with the highest level of
standards and integrity, designed with purposefulness around their mission and

The IAC Spell

Article by Natalie Tucker Miller, MMC, BCC – Lifetime Member, IAC
Lead Certifier, Past President

After 10 years of committed involvement with the IAC, it's interesting to recall
my early attraction and what compelled me to consider lifetime membership.

I just knew.

I knew there was something unique, progressive, and visionary about the way
Thomas Leonard viewed life and what was possible. The idea of coaches being
honored for their coaching prowess, regardless of the path they chose to get
there, was something that made tremendous sense to me.

For years as a teacher (early to adult education), I bucked a system that invested
time determining weaknesses, in favor of focusing on strengths. My research
in this area proved what I knew in my heart: when we value the unique gifts
each person brings to bare, the rest will take care of itself.

It is that philosophical foundation that has informed much of my work at the
IAC. In 2003, I personally offered what I could in terms of involvement. Joining
early, supporting the people doing the heavy lifting, meeting like-minded people
who had a desire to contribute in whatever way brought them fulfillment, and
drinking in all the coaching knowledge I could. After successfully completing
the certification requirements, I was invited to consider training as a certifier.

Shortly thereafter, the IAC was faced with the task of modifying the standards
with which they evaluated coaching mastery. Ruth Ann Harnisch, then board member
and significant contributor, shared with me the impending dilemma of developing
new intellectual property. Dr. Lucia Murphy and I had been creating a model
of our own as founders of the Triad Resource Center, and offered Ruth Ann to
freely use whatever the IAC needed.

As it turned out, our model became a catalyst for inspiration. Sali Taylor,
who had been working and campaigning behind the scenes to upgrade the process
for several months, pulled together teams of over 36 coaches from 5 continents
and worked for 24 months. Later with Nina East, Karen VanCleve, and myself testing
it against the current model, we created what is now considered a gold standard
in coaching evaluation: the IAC Coaching Masteries.

During this time, the IAC leadership was looking to the future and succession
planning for the next administration. Then-president Barbara Mark and board
member Diane Krause-Stetson approached me with their hope to nominate me for
president for the upcoming term. This was another "I just knew" moment.

Perhaps it is because of my unflappable belief in coaching or my powerful vision
of what masterful coaching can and does accomplish, and/or my attention to my
"just knew it" moments – serving on the board only strengthened my
commitment. I have served on other boards and when the term was up it was time
to move on. Not so with the IAC. To this day, I continue believing in the magic;
I get to play with some of the coolest people in the profession and feel a strong
sense of personal and spiritual fulfillment as I contribute in my own unique
way to the evolution of coaching. It's what everyone at the IAC does. I just
know it.

Processing in the Present

Article by Bob Tschannen-Moran, MMC, BCC
LifeTrek and School Provisions
President, LifeTrek Coaching International

After a lifetime of vim and vigor, including running more than 50 marathons
and ultra-marathons, I experienced my first of many seizures at the end of August
2012 and I have been on a challenging, scary, and healing journey ever since.
My first seizure sent me sliding down a flight of stairs at home and I could
have been a goner right there, but fortunately the Universe had other plans.
These seizures came out of nowhere, having no such history at all for the first
57 years of my life, and have been very traumatic for my family, my loved ones,
and me. My official diagnosis, “Autoimmune Limbic Encephalitis,”
means that my immune system went from protecting me to attacking me, specifically
the limbic part of my brain. Whenever I express remorse to my wife, (who has
been steadfast in her love and support as well as a profound, healing presence
through all of this,) her standard reply is that she would rather be a wife
than a widow. We have somehow pulled through this together, and hope for a stronger
and better future as a result of this crisis.

One thing that my condition has meant is that I now suffer from profound memory-loss
issues. I went from a mind that never forgot a thing to a mind that suffers
from CRS disease – Can’t Remember Stuff (although I usually use
a different word than “Stuff” when it comes to the acronym). As
a result, I carry around a little book wherever I go, writing things down to
help keep track of what I do, say, and experience. This book has become my second
brain, and I review it regularly throughout the day and when I go to sleep at
night. Every time I have even a little glimmer of recognition that I remember
something I wrote, I pause for a moment of thanksgiving and often shed a tear.
Such moments are that profound.

In the wake of this affliction, (which the doctors tell me I can hope to recover
from significantly if not fully,) I have come to appreciate Coaching Mastery
#4 in the fullest of all possible senses. Processing in the Present is all I
really have right now; it represents my best attribute and contribution to the
world. I love some of the key elements expressed in Mastery #4: being aware
of what is happening in the moment, at all levels; being able to discern the
difference between past, present, and future; allowing clients to process questions
and comments without intruding; allowing clients the opportunity to process
their own thoughts, feelings, and responses. When people give me that gift,
I have a new, heartfelt appreciation for the difference it makes. I understand
deeply how processing in the present facilitates growth, learning, and development.
As a result, I have become even better at extending that gift to others. The
present is all I really have right now, and that is more than enough to wake
up again tomorrow.

May you be filled with goodness, peace, and joy.

Your Coaching Contract

Article by Aileen Gibb

The first IAC Mastery requires the coach to establish a relationship with each
client that: “ensures a safe space and supportive relationship for
personal growth, discovery and transformation.

The day before I sit down to write this column, I hear the story of a coach
who focused so much on what was wrong that the client felt belittled and intimidated.
In order to cope within the coaching conversation, the client resorted to listening
only and letting the coach have his say. As a result there was no opportunity
for growth, discovery or transformation for the client. Obviously this was not
an IAC Masteries coach and it is disappointing to still hear such stories.

One of the first tools a masterly coach needs is a good contract with each
client. As a coach you can access examples of good coaching contracts on-line,
from your coaching body or from other coaches. Consider, however, that an effective
contract with your client is not an off-the-shelf one which you impose on every
client. An effective contract is one which can be customized to accommodate
the needs of your client, and is one that reflects who you are as a
coach. A great contract establishes and sustains a relationship that serves
you both well.

Have you paused lately to review your coaching contract and ask how well it
serves your relationship with your client? Have you ever thought to take it
further and consider how well it serves your relationship with yourself?

Yes, your coaching contract is for you as well as for your client. First and
foremost, it serves as your inner compass, in addition to guiding your outer
responses to your client’s needs. How often do you do a “contract
review” with yourself to check how well you are living up to it? Does
your contract illuminate when you might be off track in your intentions as a
coach? Does it remind you how to get back to your focus on the path to mastery?

Here are some questions to hold in one hand, while you review your contract
in the other. Does your coaching contract:

  • Remind you of why you coach? What intentions and purpose you bring to your
  • Inspire and reflect your own continued learning and growth, personally and
  • Enable you to discover more about yourself and pay attention to insights,
    which provide vital energy to sustain you in your work?
  • Provide signals to alert you when you may not be coaching to your full potential?
  • Create an opportunity for you to track results, gather feedback and provide confirmation that you are inspiring quality in your coaching and not just quantity?
  • Open you up to feedback, and provide a means for your client to question
    or challenge your approach, which may be vital to knowing whether your clients are getting value from their experience with you?

My colleague, Ian Wallace, is an expert in the unconscious behaviours that
drive success. His work reveals that what happens inside us is reflected in
what happens outside. As Coaches, our journey to success starts within: knowing
our inner self and understanding how we reflect ourselves into our work with
clients. The coach in my opening story was less attentive to this. Ian’s
seminal work with The Archegyre, taught me that the word “contract,”
when looked at as a verb, also means to make smaller. If our inner contract
makes us smaller with ourselves, then it is bound to make our relationship with
our clients smaller too.

The opposite of “contract” is to “amplify.” When we
amplify our own inner coach, we in turn amplify both our relationship with our
clients and the results they achieve.

New IAC Fees

Susan Meyer

Since its inception, the IAC has worked hard to keep our operating costs as
low as possible so that we could keep certification and membership fees affordable.
It has been eight years since fees have been increased, and, during those years,
costs have continued to rise. Although most of our work is done by volunteers
(the Executive Committee, the entire Board of Governors, the teleseminar and
webinar leaders), we do have a few (poorly) paid positions and we do incur expenses
in paying for translations, paying the Certifiers and maintaining our website,
mailing list and conferencing services. We also have employed expert assistance
in an inter-rater reliability process to ensure that our certification process
remains uniform, fair and impartial.

As we prepared the 2013 budget, it became painfully clear that we would need
to increase fees if we were going to continue to exist. This was not an easy
decision for us. Although the new numbers may look high to you, I'm hoping that
you will keep two things in mind: 1) we have increased and will continue to
increase opportunities for our members to come together in a variety of ways
and to continue to hone their skills and 2) IAC membership and certification
is still significantly less expensive than other certifications. Of course,
we also think its also both simpler and the gold standard for coaching excellence.

Here are the new fees, effective March 1, 2013:

Membership: $149, early bird $139
Step 1 online exam (now available in several languages and
regularly revised to reflect cultural nuances): $97
Scoring of certification recordings: (includes resubmission
of 1 recording if needed) $500
Review of Learning Agreement: remains $150

Licensing fees have also increased and have been provided to al licensed schools.

As a long-standing fee-paying member, I'll be digging a bit deeper in my own
pocket to support the IAC. I believe in what we're doing and I hope that you
do as well.
