Coaching Perspectives the Association for Coaching’s International magazine

Coaching Perspectives is the AC’s flagship global publication and a key benefit of membership. Published quarterly, the magazine delivers informative and thought-provoking content, global in reach and mindset. We are proud to feature leading coaches and thought leaders among our contributors. The magazine offers practical guidance, new ideas, research, interviews, and features on a wide diversity of activities, organisations and ventures pertinent to coaching and leadership. Coaching Perspectives is now available as a printed version, click on the button below for more details.

The world is gripped by the Covid-19 global crisis, and no one is immune from the emotional rollercoaster It engenders. This is a time for leadership. This issue builds on the growing realisation that command and control is giving way to a coaching style of leadership. The urgency for leaders to adopt coaching skills, to support compassion, vision and agency, has been brought into sharp relief by the pandemic.



Co-Coaching Forums

Co-coaching helps us practise coaching, explore new ways of coaching and even help us work on areas we might want to improve. Attending a Co-coaching forum provides us with the opportunity to practise in a safe environment whilst being part of a network of like-minded people to share ideas and resources.

Co-coaching is a member benefit so there’s no cost to our members to attend.
