"Adult development has long been a subject reserved for academia and psychological professions; although in recent years, it has become an integral part of coaching, adult learning, and leadership development," states Timothy Wachtel, COAD's founder and executive director.
"Volumes of research are now available to practitioners to assist in the development of adults cross-culturally and for application across a multitude of domains.
says further, "COAD
will provide a forum for information sharing among Adult Development professionals and provide them, and the general public, the necessary tools to assist in their own development and those for whom they love, teach, and serve."
The Center for Optimal Adult Development
(COAD) (http://www.optimaladult.org) is an international community of evidence-based professionals utilizing adult development methods and the single largest resource for optimal adult development knowledge and sharing.
