University of Georgia Offers Executive Coaching Certification Program This Fall

/PRNewswrie/ -- As businesses operate in a challenging economy, decisions have to be reasoned, sharp and focused. As more organizations and executives incorporate professional coaching into their development initiatives, the need for certified executive coaches has soared.

The University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education, a leading source for executive coaching and professional development programs, and the Sasha Corp, LLC, are pleased to offer the Fall session of the Sherpa Executive Coaching Certification Program, Oct. 12-16 and Dec. 1-4, 2009, at the Georgia Center, 1197 S. Lumpkin St., on the UGA campus in Athens, Georgia.

The Sherpa Executive Coaching Certification Program gives participants the opportunity to become a process-driven coach and earn a university-endorsed certification. Not only are executive coaches valuable to an organization, they help turn workplace weaknesses into new strengths, thus improving a company's bottom line.

Judith Colemon, a Sherpa Coaching author and instructor, explained: "Human Resource professionals, who have experience with one-on-one coaching, know it produces a tremendous return on investment. That's not to say they'd hire just any coach. Some people in this business don't have a clear process, or the skills to do a great job. Our executive coaching program offers a proven way to create those skills and qualifications."

In addition, UGA and the Sasha Corporation, LLC, also offer Coaching Skills for High Performance, a program that creates a powerful coaching mindset and winning skill set for managers and executives. Coaching Skills for High Performance will be offered Nov. 2-4, 2009 at the University of Georgia Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Rd., in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
