If you look closely at the Institute of Coaching (IOC) logo you will notice a bridge. The IOC was created to be a bridge - connecting good science to coaching practice, and connecting like-minded coaches who enjoy, appreciate, and apply science in their coaching.
Last week we were all reminded of the potential of bridging science to coaching during our 2021 Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare Conference. The presenters came from a wide array of fields. We traveled from the practices of anthropology to high quality motivation to the science of foresight and psychological safety. We enjoyed a thoughtful conversation about the future of coaching, and we were reminded why there is a bridge is in our logo.
We welcome our new members and thank our members and fellows who have supported us throughout the years by attending many, even all, of our 13 conferences. Without you, we would not be able to be bridge-builders.

Email replies that show up a week later. Video chats full of “oops... sorry no you go” and “can you hear me?!” Ambiguous text-messages. Is it any wonder communication takes us so much time and effort to figure out? How did we lose our innate capacity to understand each other? Humans rely on body language to connect and build trust, but with most of our communication happening from behind a screen, traditional body language signals are no longer visible - or are they?
