FROM THE EDITOR
Nice to Meet You!
by Sarah McArthur
Dear Readers and Members:
As an editor and writer of business coaching books and articles for nearly a decade now, I'm excited to take on the editorial responsibilities for Business Coaching Worldwide. I hope to continue the great work of my predecessor Donna Mills and to make sure that the BCW eZine proves to be engaging, informative and helpful to you, the readers and members of WABC.
With that in mind, I hope you'll enjoy this last issue of 2007. Our feature article, "Hybrid World: Coaching and the Complexities of Age, Values, and Asian Business," is written by Maya Hu-Chan. Maya addresses the complexities and dualities business coaches face when coaching Asian leaders. Ernesto Olascoaga provides us with an interesting success story involving gedas, T-Systems, an IT consulting company. Karen Switzer Howse delves into coaching within the scientific community in this issue's, 'Get the Edge' article, and Nerella Campigotto explains how to use your best marketing tool, your website, to promote your business internationally. I also hope you'll enjoy the latest thoughts about coaching, ROI, and assessments from columnists, Marshall Goldsmith, Bronwyn Bowery-Ireland, and Roberta Hill.
2008 is shaping up to be an exciting time for us. And as we say goodbye to 2007, we'll be saying goodbye to BCW the way it was. We're working on a new look and feel for BCW, which we'll debut in the next issue, Spring 2008.
As we finalize the new design and format, I'd like to know if there are subjects that are of particular interest to you. Are there topics that you'd like to read or possibly write about? Please send me your comments, suggestions, ideas, and feedback. I welcome your input and I look forward to being a part of the BCW team.
