Lessons from the Certifiers


Masteries Practitioner
by Natalie Tucker Miller, MMC

2015 ushers in many positive changes to the IAC. By now you’ve likely heard that the IAC web presence is going through a significant make-over, as well as greater clarity around the pathways a coach can take to the practitioner and certification designations.

One exciting and important development in this pathway is the manner in which the Masteries Practitioner designation is awarded.

After many months of discussion and review of the process, the IAC is pleased to announce that beginning immediately, when a coach passes the Step One online exam, and has completed the initial Learning Agreement Proposal review with a certifier or reviewer, they will earn the IAC Masteries Practitioner designation. The IAC recognizes the dedication to coaching mastery required in completing these steps, and feels this honors coaches’ achievements in a substantial way.

This change reinforces the commitment the IAC has to supporting coaches as they grow professionally and personally through their continued exploration of the Masteries.

More and more people are becoming familiar with this important body of work that was developed over a period of almost 24 months, by over 26 coaches from 5 continents. Click on the following links to further understand the rigor that was part of the Masteries development:


Ongoing exploration of the Masteries inspires greater skill and mastery, whether you are new to coaching, or have been coaching for several years or decades.

So thank you. Thank you for believing in yourself, trusting the coaching process, and the understanding the power of masterful coaching by fully integrating the IAC Coaching Masteries into your professional and personal life, and the lives of the clients, family and friends.
