Murphy Receives Certificate in Relationship Coaching

POSTED November 12, 2007 — Today, S.T.A.R. Resources announced that Mary Elizabeth Murphy has received certification for completing twelve hours’ course study in Organization and Research Systems Coaching (ORSC) by the Center for Right Relationship (CRR), an accredited institution with the International Coach Federation.  The ORSC Program is a groundbreaking model for coaching relationship systems in organizations, groups, teams, partnerships, and couples.

This subtle shift has a profound impact on the results that are possible in systems coaching.

Our reactions to those situations often make the difference between closing a sale and burning a bridge. Frustration is a natural part of the sales process, whether it comes in the form of a stonewalling prospect or a vendor who won’t budge on price or quantity.
