Reader comments about The Coaching News:

It's so refreshing to find a coach who shares meaningful information that is substantive, based on real experience, and is also valuable to others.

I prefer reading the Coaching News more than any other ezine because you offer solid information. I appreciate your objective viewpoints on matters that impact on the coaching community.

The purpose of The Coaching News was to provide information about emerging trends, critical issues, and essential resources to persons involved in or considering coaching as a career. Each issue was advertising- and commercial-free.

Typically The Coaching News was a shorter and less comprehensive version of the monthly Peer Bulletin, which is only available to members of the Peer Resources Network. From time to time items from the Peer Bulletin will appear later in The Coaching News. (The Peer Bulletin typically includes items about coaching as well as mentoring and peer assistance.)

The Coaching News typically does not include the graphics, photographs, charts or figures that are included in the Peer Bulletin, nor does it typically include the hotlinks that accompany the articles and resources extracted from and detailed in the Peer Bulletin.

The Coaching News was a service of Peer Resources available at no cost to subscribers. It was typically delivered by email every few months. It is no longer available as a subscriber publication and has been replaced by the SpiritMentor blog, which is also available at no cost. It is an opt-in blog. Subscriptions are available at spiritmentor.wordpress.com.

Peer Resources adheres to a privacy policy that prohibits the use of subscriber information or contact details for any commercial purposes. Email addresses are not revealed or provided to any other sources under any circumstances.

All back issues are listed on this page. However, each issue has been archived offline. For any individual issue, email: rcarr@islandnet.com with details about the issue wanted.
