Sondra Marie Lovett, a Cayman Islands-based business development professional, earned the designation of Associate Certified Coach from the International Coach Federation.

Lovett is an active member of the Cayman Coaches Network, designed to bring more awareness and visibility to coaching. The mission of network is to help regulate and formalise coaching based in Cayman by promoting excellence in the profession.

Cayman Coaches Network representative Chanda Glidden said, “We’re really proud of Sondra for her amazing accomplishment. It’s a major feat and a great example of the highly trained and professional coaches that are based in the Cayman Islands.”

“Members of the Cayman Coaches Network have all received formal coach training and are committed to continued professional development through our local network and organisations like the International Coach Federation and Association of Coaching,” she added.

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring or training, CCN said.

Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.
