Meet Laurie Lambert, Certified Direct Selling Coach from Arlington, Texas.
Laurie uses coaching daily in her role as a Field Development Manager. Laurie entered the UCU program for a variety of reasons. As part of her professional development plan, she wanted to grow her skills as a coach for her position with Dove Chocolate Discoveries. Additionally, she admired leaders who used the coach approach to leadership and looked for a program that would support her to be a more effective coach. UCU made sense to her because “it was the only program that combined the professionalism of the international coaching community with the practical application of the direct selling industry.” Laurie is currently working on her ICF ACC credential and expects to have it soon.
Reflecting on the skills, tools, and processes Laurie learned in UCU coursework, she was most impressed with the work she did with her mentor coach. “My mentor coach really modeled good coaching skills as well as helping me improve my own coaching.”
Laurie feels her greatest growth was in the area of coaching presence. “The ability to enter into my client’s world, stay there, and really hold that space for them is exciting. When it is their idea, their solution, positive change happens.”
Laurie and her husband Mitchell enjoy a variety of hobbies. She recognizes that coaching significantly impacts her role as a spouse and mother to adult children.
