Welcome to 2014! There is much to report from the Certification Board at this time, so I’d like to use this time and space to bring you up to date.
In addition to expanding the certification team to include two new certifiers, our recent focus has been on expanding Part 2 of the certification process into other languages. As you can imagine, this is a rigorous and painstaking process. IAC certifiers must go through an extensive training period, and the addition of languages adds several steps and challenges that we have been addressing. When you consider the precision the certifiers must adhere to in the certification process, you can imagine how transferring this process to other languages is no small task!
Let’s send loving and abundant appreciation to Bonnie Chan, who has taken charge to include Chinese as the first non-English language certification option.
We are still some time away from accepting recordings, but I assure you we are getting close. Once we have mastered the process in Chinese languages, we intent to move forward with French and Spanish. This is such an exciting time for the IAC, I invite you to celebrate along with us!
Another update I’d like to discuss is the Learning Agreements (LA). We have been reviewing individual LAs since November 2011, and the results and responses have been remarkable. I am continually delighted with the personalized plans people create, in an effort to address their learning style and personal growth plans. In 2014 we intend to share some of those plans with you, in an effort to help spark some ideas. But don’t worry if you aren’t totally clear on what you want to accomplish. An hour with one of the masterful coach reviewers and you’ll gain all the clarity and support you need! I’ve included a couple of articles from coaches who have submitted their LAs. What they have to say is extremely helpful!
Please keep your questions for the certifiers coming! We love being able to address your most important issues!
