Brought to you by the IACET-authorized CEU provider Center for Coaching Certification, this unique and engaging ICF-approved program combines internet learning with live classes,
and provides successful participants with the Certified Professional Coach designation.

Houston, November 1, 2011 – Certified Master Coach Cathy Liska, CEO and Training Director for the Center of Coaching Certification is leading a 2-for-1 combination online and on-site Certified Professional Coach program in Houston beginning November 1st. Successful participants of this comprehensive program will receive a Certified Professional Coach designation and certificate.

Beginning November 1st the program starts with a series of five 90-minute webinars address topics including ethics, communication, and neuro-linguistic programming. The live local classes will be held on November 28th and 29th at the Holiday Inn near the Hobby Airport to allow participants to experience coaching hands-on: coach, be coached, and observe coaching. Targeting professionals, the Certified Professional Coach program is designed to build on experience and education, and focuses on the core competencies as promoted by the International Coaches Federation. Pre-registration is required — the application is free. Multiple registrants receive a special rate, and scholarships for non-profit employees or volunteers are available.

Coaching is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. Quoted in a Workforce Management online article, American Management Association President and CEO Ed Reilly observed, “At forward-thinking companies, HR executives who are involved in influencing human capital management development are the ones recommending that executives or rising stars work with a business coach.”

In addition, an American Management Association study found that “sending potential coaches to external development programs was more strongly correlated with overall coaching success than more internally focused methods.” Houston professionals seeking initial certification or continuing education will benefit from this accelerated program that Training Director Cathy Liska says is “exceptional in content and quality of the training delivery.”

Recent participants in the program agree:
• “Cathy is a phenomenal coach trainer; I know dozens of life and executive coaches who have been trained by Cathy, and they are all enjoying increased business and professional success as a direct result! I’ve gone through the training myself and can HIGHLY recommend it!” – Shari Stauch
• “Cathy blends a uniquely personal approach with a deep coaching expertise and a sincere commitment to the growth and development of her clients, customers and students. I am pleased to give her my full endorsement.” – David Warne
