We all have ways of being in the world. Sometimes those work for us, but sometimes, they work to our detriment by keeping us from new insights and by allowing us to repeat unwanted behavior in our relationships. Dr. Christy Vincent, a business and professional coach, demonstrates how we can catch ourselves before we become our own stumbling block.
Dr. Christy Vincent is a professor in the Mass Communication Department at the University of Central Oklahoma, where she teaches organizational and strategic communication courses. Her research interests include conflict management, mediation, change management, executive coaching, and training and development. Her interest in conflict management led her to the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at the Pepperdine University School of Law, where she earned a Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
Christy is a communication specialist. Using her years of experience in organizational effectiveness and conflict management, she coaches individuals to increase their leadership effectiveness. While she has coached individuals in all roles, one of her specialties is working with young directors who are being groomed for higher-level positions. She particularly enjoys coaching young women leaders, who are building both careers and families at the same time. Christy helps her clients improve in essential behaviors such as managing time, setting priorities, uncovering values, working through conflict, coping with stress and managing multiple roles. She regularly conducts training courses for local corporations. Dr. Vincent’s professional experience outside of the university is in organizational development, management, sales and product development in private industry.
