November 03, 2014
ALLIANCE, Ohio – Canton, Ohio resident Rebecca Doak, executive director of Center for Student Success and Career Development at the University of Mount Union, was one of 12 National Association of Colleges Employers (NACE) members selected from across the nation to become trained and certified as a NACE Career Coach Intensive (CCI) facilitator.
The CCI program teaches a revolutionary way to help college students with career preparation, according to Doak. It is designed to teach the teachers a new approach to help their student clients. The new philosophy is focused on coaching the student using techniques such as positive psychology and appreciative inquiry.
As a NACE CCI facilitator, Doak will have the opportunity to travel the country and facilitate CCI workshops. As of now she is scheduled to present in Dallas, Texas in January and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in May. During the workshops, Doak will explain the difference between coaching and counseling and discuss coaching techniques.
“As a mental health therapist, I have always bought into the philosophy of ‘empowering’ clients and NACE’S Career Coaching Intensive model takes this concept to a new level,” said Doak. “The Career Coaching Intensive process focuses on coaching students to be the agent of their own change – a perfect match as we prepare our students to navigate their own personal career journeys. It is both an honor and a privilege to be selected to facilitate NACE’S CCI Trainings.”
Doak received a Master of Arts degree in education and counseling from Malone University and a Bachelor of Science degree in education from the University of Findlay. She has spent 30 years in the education field, and has worked at the University of Mount Union for 14 years.
