San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2008
While many firms offer professional coaching and leadership advice, few can boast that their tried and tested methodology has helped managers and executives coach others for over 12 years. Mariposa Leadership, a Silicon Valley executive leadership coaching firm, is pleased to announce its 12th annual In-The-Moment (ITM) Coaching Workshop on Tuesday, September 16 and Wednesday, September 17, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Mariposa Meeting Center in San Francisco.
Targeted at managers and HR professionals, Mariposa Leadership's unique event will help attendees develop coaching skills that can immediately be applied within fast-paced organizations.
"The ITM Coaching Workshop provides attendees with the coaching skill set necessary for 'teaching others how to fish' rather than solving the problem for them," states Mariposa's CEO and founder, Sue Bethanis. "Effective leaders see themselves at the bottom of the pyramid. They lead by guiding others through support and encouragement so in the future they learn how to solve problems on their own."
The workshop helps managers coach direct reports "on the fly" and capitalize on the day-to-day moments they do have in a time-crunched environment. Additionally, it teaches how to guide others through difficult issues without having to solve the issue for them. Practicing these coaching skills with colleagues from various industries and professions helps participants cement the methodology and more easily apply it in the future.
"We are excited to once again share our popular ITM coaching method with the public for the 12th year," added Bethanis. "It's one of our most popular workshops because it helps managers be more efficient. Learning to coach others on-the-spot into solving their problems for themselves increases effectiveness and frees up time for the manager."
The cost for the workshop is $990 and seating is limited. Final registration is due by September 1, 2008. Attendees who register before August 15th will receive discounted rate of $900.
