News release from San Diego Professional Coaches Alliance

CARLSBAD, CA (01/29/2008– To celebrate International Coaching Week, February 3-9, 2008, the San Diego Professional Coaches Alliance (SDPCA) launches its new speaker’s bureau service. As part of SDPCA’s community outreach effort, volunteer member coaches will offer a highly engaging and informative presentation designed to educate individuals and businesses owners about the field of coaching.
If you always wondered what business or life coaches do and how they can help you, then invite a member of San Diego Professional Coaches Alliance (SDPCA) speakers bureau to address your company, professional organization or community group. One of our speakers will come to your site and explain how a supportive relationship with a trained professional can enhance your ability to learn, make desired changes, solve problems, and achieve goals. This presentation is offered at no cost and delivered by one of our board or committee team members, based on availability.
“Our members are very skilled and will give you a clear picture of the coach’s job. They’ll demonstrate that a coach’s primary role is to ask questions and suggest alternatives—not provide advice or design solutions,” says Elizabeth Fried, Ph.D., marketing and public relations board member for SDPCA, and president of The Learning Engine, an executive assessment, development, and coaching firm. “The goal is to guide clients to discover their own unique answers and choose their own paths. A coach may provide ideas, expertise, and skill-building techniques, but doesn’t solve clients’ problems for them, nor tell them what to do.”
To engage a speaker for your group, contact Dr. Fried at 760-633-4444.
