, (PressExposure) June 19, 2006 -- Diana Habich, President and founder of DD Lawrence Inc. has been awarded professional credentials from The Coaches Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the not for profit oversight organization for the professional coaching industry.
Adding to her already extensive background in corporate sales and marketing, Ms. Habich actively pursued rigorous coach training and supervision provided by The Coaches Training Institute in co-active coaching models theory and application. These efforts have earned her a Certified Professional Co-active Coach (CPCC) credential.
According to Diana Habich, "pursuing professional credentials reflected my commitment to uphold high standards of performance by utilizing established best practices in this growing field. There is a strong relationship between a client's professional and personal goals. The extensive training and subsequent credentials allow me to move beyond a traditional consulting role, providing a guidance, training and support to those clients looking for much more than the next big sale or promotion." A recent High Impact Coaching study conducted by Executive Development Associates surveyed over 100 global Fortune 500 firms working with executive coaches to find that less than 62% of coaches currently held certifications. Further, the study cited that those awarded by the ICF, who is striving to bring qualification and standardizations to the field, were the "most credible" in the marketplace.
Having accumulated the required accredited coach training, coaching hours and supervision, Diana has also been awarded the professional designation of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) by the International Coaching Federation.
