Challenges like these present an opportunity for our community of IAC® coaches to ‘invite possibility’ (IAC® Mastery 8) by seeking and engaging with new clients and expand coaching to dimensions that are more than just ‘coaching.’
Over the past many months the IAC® team have worked diligently to broaden the horizons of coaching. Recollecting former US President, Woodrow Wilson, remark that “we should not only use the brains we have but all that we can borrow” it seemed apt to look beyond our own resources and seek and ‘use support systems and structures’ (IAC® Mastery 9). We reached out to the millennial, engaged with coaching thought leaders through our Quo Vadis, Coaching?™ webinars, built on our Paths to Mastery and Success, upgraded our technology platforms and social media interactions and now plan to do much, much more to reach out the community of coaches across the world.
At the start of the year, I had mentioned that the IAC® uniqueness as a coaching organization is our functioning as a global family. When my colleagues or I travel and visit our members across the globe including to the farthest parts of Asia and South America, we are honored and delighted at the warmth of the welcome with which we are received. In an atmosphere that allows for mutual respect there is terrific learning and, as mentioned in the ancient Vedas, we find that ‘noble thoughts come to us from everywhere.’
While we are global citizens bound by technology, trade, flow of capital and human potential let us remain grateful to be One Family of God’s Creation. I take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful Holiday Season and a joyous New Year!
