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.

The latest issue focuses on Coaching for Social Change. Beyond the boardroom, coaching can act as a powerful agent for bringing to light and addressing social injustice through grounded and sustainable practice.
